This is a custom banquette sofa that we just finished for a client in Northern California. A banquette sofa typically does not have arms, and are usually seen in restaurants, window seats or kitchen table nooks. Nowadays, many designers are using them as seating in spaces such as living rooms, family rooms and great rooms and they tend to lend a slight informal air to the area, depending on the fabric that is used.
In this case, the designer used a custom dyed & washed linen for the body, and a custom silk velvet for the single seat cushion & back pillows. Both the seat, and the back cushions, have light tufting. It's a simply gorgeous piece; we hope the client loves it!
