Norwegian wood. In this country kitchen, designed by architect Christine Fikseaunet, a simple window seat with an upholstered banquette cushion is paired with a wood table to create a casual dining setting. With the addition of a small screen in the corner of the nook, it also allows for communal television viewing among family members or friends.
Cool and clean. This spectacular dining banquette is sited in the middle of a living space in a renovated 1960s apartment in Melbourne. It was decorated by interior design company Mr. Mitchell within a stand‐alone, all‐white cube. This "allowed us to introduce the macramé screen, which is a fun reference to the retro era of the apartment", says Mr. Mitchell director Andrew Mitchell.
Consider a designer pack‐and‐go dining table. Plywood is lightweight and durable, and a plywood table can be flat‐packed and assembled as needed at home. Your dining table then can be packed up and moved as necessary. Plus it works well in a home with modern Nordic or contemporary Asian style.
