El DoradoTransitional Kitchen, New York

Paired with a Saarinen pedestal table, an upholstered banquette—fabricated and installed by Best & Company—makes full use of a formerly underutilized kitchen corner, now a site for morning coffee, conversation with the cook, and catching up on work before dashing out the door. The dark-stained wood on the frame and adjacent set-back cabinet add natural warmth to the all-white room without detracting from its sense of spaciousness.

    Chicago Booth Manufacturing made my banquette. Cost plus shipping was about 2400.00. They make for homes as well as commercial use.

    Customary table height is 32". You will want at least 15" of legroom between the seat and table.

    check on craigslist or eBay . If you want quality replicas check Barcelona designs. They are a bit expensive, but looking at the quality, the are the best you can out there. Their site and it gives you every detail about the product—big and minor.

    Hello! Like Sally Cole Design said, table is a Saarinen table. Similar inexpensive options can be found in multiple retailers, including Ikea.
    The banquette was custom built by us here at Best & Co. For inquires, please call us at (212) 776-1111 or visit our website: http://www.bestandcompanynyc.com/

    Thanks for the response. Much appreciated. Don't know if you can help but as we are just a year into our new summer home and we need both a master bath and Kitchen reno (eventually) we are absolutely not going to buy a "real" saarinen table. We need to buy a much less expensive one, much like those you have recommended. We have heard that the "in the style of Saarinen" tables sometimes do not hold up. Any thoughts???? Thanks

    Sure, Maria! Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but it's not always the best investment. There are three good reasons why Eero Saarinen's graceful Tulip table has remained admired by modernists since its introduction in 1958: simple beauty, quality materials, and quality workmanship. A new table that aspires to these standards will stand the test of time, but there are plenty that copy the look alone. When you hunt for a new table, remember that it will be the center of activity daily, for many years: In our experience, buying the best you can afford pays off over the long run. That is the Best & Company philosophy!

    When consumers ask for dimensions, it DOESN’T help to say they were custom made. Obviously, we can figure that out. We’re asking for dimensions to get a better idea of how a configuration’s size might work in our spaces even before we set out to call City Living Design or any manufacturer. Please get a clue and just provide general dimensions if you know them! Thank you!

    I live in the UK and I love this corner bench. I have a similar corner in my kitchen but am unsure if it is big enough. Could you give me the dimensions of the unit you built or the size of the corner it occupies. You could build it if you were closer!!
  • muttimac

    I love that gorgeous ceiling light. Could you please divulge where to get one like it? Thank you.

    Love the modern vibe in that breakfast nook. What might also fit for a space like that is a contemporary concrete hanging-lamp. We work with local designers to sell custom products, but check out what I'm thinking might also work, here: http://www.cutmodern.com/products/concrete-pendant-lamp
  • ronakarp
    Do you know the name of the designer or manufacturer of this lamp? I understand that this one is an antique from Paris, but I would like to do some of my own research to see if I can find something similar online. It's a little similar to a Henningsen lamp, but way more awesome. Please let me know if you can share more information on the lamp.

    Hardware is from Nanz. It is high end, individually fabricated, and durable. It looks sharp but you can also find plenty of replicas out there too for less money.

    Its called the YSL Downtown Tote Bag...comes in small, medium and large and different colors. I have it in black patent leather and love it! Unfortunately, its discontinued now but you can try to find it online. Be careful because there's plenty of knockoffs. Make sure you buy from a trusted source e.g. Portero, Blue Fly, Net-A-Porter etc.

    Hello! Wire shelving is a great option for laundry rooms, considering the amount of moisture and heat that is usually generated in laundry rooms. To find an option best suited for your space, we recommend you look online at Ikea, the Container Store, etc.
    In closets, we generally do not recommend wire shelving, seeing as wire is more likely to bow sooner than wood cabinetry. Here at Best & Co, we custom mill our closets from hardwood to best fit your needs. For more information on our services, you can call (212) 776-1111 or visit our website: http://www.bestandcompanynyc.com/
    Best of luck!

                    The designer placed an L-shape bench in a corner of the room where there are no cabinets or counters. Built-in corner seating can be an efficient solution when the kitchen lacks room for a table in the cooking zone, let alone chairs to go around it.

                    Louise O'Bryan added this to Kitchen Banquettes With Laid-Back CharmNov 22, 2016

                    Carve out a cute corner. A round table gives this simple setup contemporary appeal. An upholstered bench sits snugly in the corner, making use of every inch, while dining chairs can be used on the other side of the table for more seating when necessary. It’s the perfect solution for a tight space.
