I think it was natural maple from john Boos and it had an oily cream she applied to it provided by the company.

I don't know the name because the client found it in a vintage store, so it is from the 50's. I also had one in my kitchen growing up in the 60's!

Bench seating - Great bench seating. What are the dimensions?

We built it custom to fit uner the windows, so it really depends on your own space. Allow 20"- 24" wide per person, the corner really is not an easy place to sit, which is usually square depending on the depth of your seating are, so 15" X 15" or 18" X 18" ends up being dead space in the corner for no people or little persons/children. I usually I make them 15" - 18" deep, 18" tall. This one had lift up lids for storage. Sometimes I purchase drawer bases from cabinet manufacturers instead of doing a custom bench. Good luck!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jeannie Matteucci added this to Kitchen of the Week: Midcentury Meets Sweden in Minneapolis
AFTER: Designer Christine Nelson had the idea to use a built-in banquette with lift-up benches with storage inside to replace the table and chairs that at one time sat in the far corner of the kitchen. This allowed for more clearance around the eating area and better traffic flow.The kitchen’s new gray striated sheet Marmoluem floor almost looks like bamboo, adding needed pattern to the room. “Gray is a great color for livability,” Nelson says. “It doesn’t show dirt as much as other colors.”Kochevar found the vintage light fixture over the banquette online, and the framed midcentury paintings seen in the banquette area were done by Nelson’s father, an artist, in the 1950s.Custom banquette: contractor Joe Hamel; table: Knoll; paint color for benches: Super White, Benjamin Moore; paint color for walls: Copper Harbor SW6634, Sherwin-Williams; paint color for trim: Decorators White, Benjamin Moore; flooring: Marmoleum in Grey Granite, Forbo Flooring Systems
Jennifer Ott Design added this to Fall on the Wall: Decorating With Rich Reds, Browns and Oranges
Bright pumpkin orange and gray are a popular duo for modern interiors. Here they combine to make this kitchen a fun and inviting place in which to cook and gather.
Stacy Briscoe added this to Houzz Call: Show Us Your Feature Wall
A wall painted in Copper Harbor by Sherwin-Williams punches up a Minneapolis breakfast nook. Got a sizzling wall? Post a picture!

18. Midcentury Meets Sweden in MinneapolisWhat a surprise — this designer made avocado and orange enviable, up-to-date kitchen colors again. Kudos! Combined with sleek white cabinets, a stainless steel farmhouse sink and Marmoleum floors, the look suits this 1951 midcentury modern house to a T.Cool feature: A cozy built-in banquette complete with storage benchesLocation: MinneapolisSize: 133 square feet (12.4 square meters)Designer: Christine Nelson, Christine Nelson DesignSee the rest of this kitchen
Flavin Architects added this to The Case for the Midcentury Modern Kitchen Layout
In this compact kitchen by Christine Nelson Design, the floor is brought up to date with Marmoleum, a natural linoleum material, in Grey Granite. The product is a modernized version of linoleum and is easy to clean, resilient and comfortable underfoot. Here the gray plays well with the white subway tile and bright orange accent wall.
