Soap stone, but we don't have the specifics.

The table was custom built for the space. You could contact your local cabinet show and they could make you one to perfectly fit your space.

The sill is just below the top of the cushion/bench millwork. The cushion is supported with built-in millwork cabinetry and there is 4" horizontal gap between the bench back and the window wall.

Looks to me that counters are about the same height, so seating would be likewise, no? Narrow aisle but if seating is easily hidden/moved/dismissed, great space. How comfy is a seat with no back?

I still think that they are different heights and I think a seat with a back is more comfy.

I would suggest approaching a local upholsterer in your area and taking this photo with you. They will be able to tell you if they can build it (which they should be able to if they do anything more then just re-upholstery and pillows) and then they would need to come out to your home and measure your space to build a piece just for you. They will also be able to tell you how much fabric you will need. Good Luck!

Is prefinished or engineered wood flooring better than hardwood flooring?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Annie Thornton
Although there are obvious differences between these flooring options, it comes down to personal preference for choosing what to use in your own home. Pre-finished wood can be factory finished wood, which means that it is solid wood that has been finished during production so they can be laid on the spot without any additional finishing. This means it is less of an inconvenience for you to move out all of your things to let the oil finish dry. There is also engineered flooring that falls into this category. This is a thin piece of finished hardwood that is adhered to the top of a non finished piece pf plywood. Traditional hardwood flooring is laid and then finished with a water or oil base finish that can take about ten days to dry. Pre-finished wood usually has more of an even coloring than the natural color variation that comes with finishing hardwood flooring onsite. Another thing to consider is that some pre-finished wood flooring is produced with bevelled edges that some people find attracts more dirt and debris. As far as replacing worn pieces, it is easier to replace individual pieces of pre-finished, but with traditional hardwood you can just refinish your hardwood flooring.

How do people feel about hardwood vs engineered wood flooring?

Wondering what the table measurements are?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erin Lang Norris added this to 5 Ways to Make the Most of Your Morning
Comfortable seating. A sun-swept dining area is perfect for reading your latest magazines over coffee, especially when there is cushy seating to enjoy them from. Mornings and windows seem to go hand in hand.
Here a long banquette with a custom table lets the chef and guests interact without getting in one another's way. Similar stools in two sizes keep the look of the breakfast bar and lounge area consistent. The measurements of this kitchen mean the curved bar and table are close (3½ feet at the narrowest point) to make the most of the space while still offering a comfortable walkway.
Tiffany Carboni added this to Over-the-Door Shelves Offer Sneaky Storage
Be safe. If you'll be storing heavy objects over doorways, take precautions to keep your overhead wares secure with wire, dowels or adhesive — especially if you live in earthquake country.
