Mumbles and I moved into our new home over the weekend and one of the things I’m most excited about is the custom banquette/kitchen nook we had built in front of the windows in our new kitchen. I can’t wait to enjoy a cup of coffee and enjoy the view out back! In our first home, the kitchen, dining and living rooms were all pretty much the same space but now that our dining and living rooms are on the other side of the kitchen wall, it will be nice to have this area as a designated hangout spot while we cook dinner together.
I ordered this fabric to make cushions (and scored a huge slab of foam from Home Depot for $20!! That’s $45 cheaper than the cheapest foam I could find with a coupon at Joann’s Fabrics. Write that down, folks. The foam at Home Depot is near the huge rolls of carpet in the back of the store). Now, just to find the perfect little kitchen nook table… For context, the built-in benches are 6 ft long on each side and our kitchen is mainly white and gray, with slate colored appliances, stainless accents and medium tone hardwood floors. Oh, and my pots and pans, coffee maker and stand mixer are cherry red.
Here are a few kitchen dining tables that I’m liking so far…
- Dylan Dining Table | CB2
- Peak Dining Table | CB2
- Blox Dining Table | CB2
- Simon X Table Base & Glass Top | Pier 1
- Melltorp Table | Ikea
- Parsons Concrete Top with Stainless Base | Crate & Barrel
- Saarinen Style Tulip Table | LexMod
- Parker Mid-century Round Dining Table | West Elm
- Rustic Kitchen Rectangular Dining Table | West Elm
Which one is your favorite? Any other suggestions for me?
