Breakfast Benches….

Hey Friends! Have you had a wonderful week? I hope so! I know I’ve been busy and I’m off to Charleston for the weekend (can you tell I LOVE it there?!? And if you’re asking, yes I want to move there, just trying to figure out how to make it work!).  Saturday I am headed to the Custom Home and Remodeling show which I am really excited about!! Hopefully I can fill you all in next week with all my great finds!

As many of you have gathered, I’m a coffee lover.  These past few months I tend to have to have my coffee on the run, in the car, at my desk, iced in the afternoon, but rarely enjoyed at the table.  It’s been a rare moment I have just been able to sit, relax, and enjoy my morning treat which has inspired today’s post.  I LOVE the idea of a breakfast room that has incorporated bench style seating.  To me, the concept just evokes a sense of relaxation.  Whether a free floating furniture style piece or a built-in banquette, the possibilities are endless.  I know I would be able to enjoy my morning coffee well into the afternoon in any of these settings!

I know there isn’t a breakfast table here, but can’t you just imagine a beautiful round table at this banquette?!?

So, what do you think? Are you open to the idea of having a bench or a banquette versus just chairs? Do you have a favorite?

Hope you enjoy your weekend! Do something inspiring 🙂 See ya next week!
