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.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
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.
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.
