Sheers are typically 2.5 to 3x fullness. I think these were closer to 3. Hope this helps!

Who was the manufacturer of table legs? - Love the look of this banquette and table. May I ask where to find the stainless steel table base/legs? I have found the legs in other materials/colors but not the stainless steel which would work perfectly for our design. Thank you very much for your help. Really enjoyed looking at this home.

Thanks for your question. The legs were provided by the fabricator for this project and I'm afraid I don't have more information.

Where can I find the curtain hardware? - I found similar hardware at Rejuvenation, but am told the brackets can not accommodate a 'through' rod so I would have to break up each window's treatment rather than having one continuous panel.

Was it necessary to have center bracket? Curtains look very lightweight

@b79babs: there are two center brackets and yes, the weight of the brass itself will cause the rod to sag which we consider much below the standard of quality we deliver to clients.

What is the table top material and do you have a problem with the table wobbling? - I am a designer working for a Kitchen and Bath Design Firm. We recently did a kitchen with a banquette that have a table. We supported the top with 2 pedestals from Hafele. The customer is not happy with the amount of wobble the table has even though it is secured to the subfloor. I was wondering if you had similar problems or if the legs/post you used with your table top prevent it from wobbling. Thanks!

What are measurements of table & booth?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lighten up an eat-in kitchen. If you've been using full curtains or blinds in the kitchen, why not switch to café curtains? These half-height pretties still provide adequate privacy and let in far more light.
Lisa Frederick added this to Short Café Curtains Are Long on Style
This space is so simple and sleek that exposing a bit of the outside view adds to its interest. Simple white café curtains create an enveloping feel around the banquette without completely obscuring the windows.
1. Make a statement with flowering branches. If you usually choose flowers, try something different and reach for the most luscious-looking armful of flowering branches you can find — from a flower shop or, if you're really lucky, clipped from the yard. It will make a stunning display and last a long time.
Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Saucer Magnolia
Bring a few flowering magnolia branchlets inside.
Becky Harris added this to 19 Ways to Create a Cozy Breakfast Nook
Try a three-sided booth. This means scooting around the table when larger groups are involved, just like in that special booth in a restaurant. Thick tufted upholstery cozies up this airy space.
Kathryn Peltier Design added this to Kitchen Banquettes: Explaining the Buffet of Options
U-shaped. This beautiful banquette seats quite a few diners. It would be a relaxing place for a dinner party. Getting in and out on a daily basis, however, might be problematic. When to use: When a rectangular table best fits the space.
Christine Ciarmello added this to Paging All Foodies: Your Banquette Is Ready
4. French bistro. Soupe à l'oignon et entrecôte, n'est pas? The Euro vibe shines through on the custom-made tufted-back bench by Platemark Design. The banquette fabric is an indoor-outdoor fabric by Chella; the pattern is Murano Strie, and the color is Lichen. The cherry blossoms are the pièce de résistance.
Laura Gaskill added this to 10 Ways to Have a Haven in the City
2. The right window coverings. In the kitchen and living areas, where privacy is not as much of a concern, consider using café curtains. Covering the lower half of your windows will provide a sense of privacy where you want it most, while still allowing sunlight to stream in from above.
