Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Posted by 2LittleFishies (My Page) on

Our yellow kitchen is ALMOST finished and we are now choosing fabric for the banquette cushions. They are all Sunbrella fabrics as this area will be used very often.

We may do leather or a leather type fabric for the seat cushion for ease of "sliding" in and out and ease of wiping down. SO, these fabrics are most likely just for the back cushions.

Here's a few photos of our kitchen

Dupioni Maize. To me this is classic and blends in beautifully with the overall kicthen. The floral fabrics compete to some extext with the pendants and the other tones in the kitchen.

RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Um...wow, I'm in love with all of it!!!!

The fabrics are all beautiful and I don't think you could really go wrong with any of them.

I'm liking the Dupione beige. I like that it doesn't compete with the floral or other patterns in the space and that it reads more yellow yet still has the hint of blue to tie into the walls in the kitchen and adjoining room.

Can I ask, what are the dimensions of your island? I just posted an island size thread and your island houses the exact number of seats that I'm looking for. AND....those look like Grandin Road stools?? I have the same ones in green.

Also, what is your island countertop material?


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Hey....great minds- GWlolo and I were on the same page!

I also wanted to add that the Dupione beige looks to be a nice durable type that would stand up to scrubbing spots or spills. It has a more coarse look to it vs a smoother finish fabric.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Kooops- Thank you! The island is 9 feet by 51". We can fit 6 stools when we need to (2 on the end) and yes those are GrandinRoad : ) We usually keep 5 there on a regular basis.

The island is Walnut with Satin Waterlox over it.

Here's is my finished kitchen thread. It has a lot of specifics there

Here is a link that might be useful: FISHIES REVEAL THREAD


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Oh rats......I can't do 9 feet!! I'll check out your thread- thank you, it's so beautiful!


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

OK, wow, I just can't stop looking! Your desk/organizational center may just fix my desk problem which I asked about on my island size thread! I love how you can shut the door and hide any mess.

I'm in PA about an hour east of Harrisburg and I will consider them for a new island/counter. The cabinets are works of art.

Your hardwoods are exactly the same as mine as well- red oak with provincial stain and a matte poly finish.

I just want to pick it up and put it in my house- nice job!


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I really like the dupione maize up close but also like the bluebells. It depends on if you want something that stands out on the banquette end or not. both fabrics have lovely colours in them!


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I'd forgotten about your textured floral backsplash tile. The bluebells tie in with that, along with the colors of it. It's the one that has the pretty qualities of the rest of the kitchen.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

bluebell works!!


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I like Wyndham Wheat and Bluebells best. The stripes tie in your darker yellows and the nice stripped chairs in the other room and still look not busy, and the bluebells ties in all your colors and the tile.

The first pattern is lovely, but at least for me doesn't fit well with the other patterns you have. The second one is also lovely, but I think the Bluebells pattern matches things better. The third one brings in the blue and yellow, but it reads almost green from a distance or some angles on my monitor, my gues is because the stripes are so narrow they blend together.

But I agree they all could work if you wanted one over the other.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Looking both up close and from across the room, I think the bluebells works the best. Colors are perfect with your wall, and adds visual interest to that end of the lovely room! Also gives you multiple options for a leather seat cushion that coordinates.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Dupione Maize.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Wonderful kitchen!

I like the light yellow one GWlolo posted. I think you've got enough patterns nearby in the adjacent area. You could add a couple patterned pillows.

Blue Bells would be my second choice or for pillows.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Bluebell! It looks amazing for the banquette and will also work well with the living room fabrics :)

 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Personally I like Pango Cream because I like geometric prints. But I think Bluebell will look the best in your space. I think the stripes are too small on one and not enough color on the other. The other print is too big.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Gorgeous kitchen! My vote is for Dupione Maize.


 o

Bluebells here, too :)

Bluebell here.

Bluebell.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I like Bluebell. The curves mimic your banquette and will forgive seams.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

The geobella is my favorite. I think floral is needed because you have stripes on the chair and it pulls in the two colors. I have never been a huge fan of yellow, but what you have created is comfortable, beautiful and ver lovely!


 o

 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I think the fabric needs both blue and yellow to tie things together.

I've been a bluebell fan most of the time, and I do still love it. However, it might compete a teensy bit too much with pendants, LR rug, LR curtains.

Dupione Maize covers all the bases, and is simple enough that you won't get tired of it. Though the bluebell is sweet, and would look lovely, I would feel more confident choosing the Dupione--less chance of buyer's remorse. I'd worry that sometime down the road I'd think "argh! Too many flowers!"

I love the interlocking rings, but blue is missing. the plain brown stripes are too blah for me. The other floral is just a bit harsh to my eye--just doesn't have the charm of bluebell. And your space is so charming!

Ultimately can't go wrong with DM or BB.

Btw: my kitchen is also Barley. It is the most luscious, creamy, soothing color EVER! I love it!

:-)


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Will the back have tufts, buttons or seams that could distort the fabric?


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Are you doing both back cushions AND pillows? If so, I would say that I'd go with Dupione Maize and loose pillow accent with some of your other choices. Even if no throw pillows, I think I'd use the same.

If using throw pillows, I'd use the Bluebell for those.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Dupione Maize. My favorite from the start. Amazing kitchen. It will be fab whatever you choose.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I'm sorry, I got confused. It's the Geobella I like. I love the colors and the floral too! But I like floral fabrics so I wouldn't tire of it. I think it would add a lovely punch to your kitchen that would not be too much.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I vote for Bluebell....It's my favourite in your kitchen. Did I mention I LOVE your kitchen. I have sent the link to my sisters and we all drooled together over it :-)


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Bluebell is my vote.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Bluebell.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Dupione Maize with some Bluebell pillows. Like the yellow better in Bluebell than Geobella and from a distance Geobella looks similar to your living room curtains in that it's a crewel print. Both very pretty, but I like the contrast of something different.
It will be beautiful no matter what. Didn't notice your stools before. They're awesome and look very comfy!


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Dupione Maize with bluebell pillows. Then, (I'm not exactly sure of the colors in adjoining room) can you put some pillows made of the dupione maize in there? Not exactly sure if they would work in that room. But I'd love to see you pull the fabric in there somehow.

The one photo of the maize looks sort of dark, but the close up is certainly yellow with a bit of blue in it. I love that fabric--my newly decorated deck has dupione celeste cushions and I just love them.

You have excellent taste and you need to trust your gut. You know your space best and you know what is your favorite. Go with your gut!

And Kooops if you are reading this...do you have a photo of your green (citrine?) stools? Would love to see them.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

island- Yes, the back will most likely have buttons/tufts.

I doubt I'll do pillows as they will be in the way and have to be moved constantly. I can always get a pair "for show" but probably wouldn't use them much.

Thanks everyone- it's always interesting to hear everyone's views. I think I've ruled out 2 of the 5 so far : )


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

At the risk of going off-topic, would you be able to post the dimensions (LxWxH) of your gorgeous banquette seat and table? Thanks!


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

The table is getting replaced b/c We need to get a pedestal table. It is a 46" circle with an 18" leaf in the middle making it 64" long. We're looking for a 60" round with a 12" leaf so it will be a bit longer. (The 64" length we have now is just a bit short for the ends).

The problem with the 46" depth is that you can't fit end chairs at the table being the bench curves out. We think a round table will "remove the ends" so the chairs will be spaced out better. Also, a 60" will place the light in the center of the table whereas a 54" round wouldn't allow the light to be centered unless we move it. (or swag it- which I'd rather not do).
I can't find really any 60" tables with leaves except for custom websites. We have to get some cardboard to make sure before having something made.

Anyway the bench is 8' 1" long measuring back corner to corner. It's 34" high. The depth varies.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Another vote for Bluebell. The Dupione Maize is beautiful, but with the living room chairs so nearby, that seems like a lot of stripes!


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Still loving the bluebell the most. I think the colors are just right. I don't have an issue with more floral.

What is on the seats of you counter stools? Had you not thought of continuing that fabric to the seat of the banquette?


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I'd be tempted to go with Dupione Maize, which is so basic as to read as a solid almost. It would allow you to add stylized pillows in the trend and colors of your choice over time. It also reads more gold to me. I'm having a hard time seeing the golds/yellows in a lot of these fabrics and it seems important for flow.

If you go with a floral, I prefer the Geobella Sanibel Beige. It seems larger scale, which coordinates with the stripe in the LR. I've already heard to mix up the scales when combining fabrics and that looks best to my eye. The bluebell is pretty, though.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

What is the name of this light yellow and blue one, below the Maize? My vote, with bluebell second or for pillows.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

snookums- that is the Dupione Maize.

controlfreak- The leather on the stools isn't available for purchase. I bought the stools from GrandinRoad

**********Let me say I've knocked out the Geobella floral and the Wyndham Wheat (as a stand alone fabric). I do like the Wyndham but just am not seeing it on the entire bench.

Also, I like all of the fabrics left so I'll probably get larger pieces of 2 so I can decide. Bluebell has always been a favorite of mine but honestly I also love the Pango cream which only one or two voted for LOL I think because I originally imagined a more contemporary/geometrical fabric!
I also wondered if the Bluebell would make it harder to add artwork above the bench.

The Dupione Maize, definitely reads as a solid from any distance away. I DO like it. I doubt I'll do pillows though to spice it up. It also looks different in person than the closeups I downloaded from the website.

Here are some more photos of my favorite combos that I just took! (This is on top of my counter stools)

RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Totally off topic fishies, but how big is your pull on the dishwasher door? Bluebells looks lovely hung over it :) The maize in the picture with the bluebells and the stripes looks a lot less yellow than in the close up above. Love the bluebells though, can't find them on the sunbrella website!


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

ali80ca- The dishwasher pull is a 12" appliance pull : )

Bluebell is actually a Greenhouse Fabric made by Sunbrella for them...

 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Thank you :)


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I like Bluebells best, but I would do the Dupione Maize given the proximity to the patterns in the other room and with the thought of artwork going above - which will be fairly close to the top of banquette.

Good luck - I'm sure whatever you decide will look equally as lovely as your kitchen. I never knew yellow could look so good!!!


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I think the Dupioni dies at a distance.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

In every picture you post, the bluebell goes with everything. It looks especially great with the leather on the stools!

I'm surprised you can't find an exact match to that leather, btw. Seems like that should be possible.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Bluebell's been my favorite since the beginning...


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Another vote for bluebell! I think it looks great with everything in your space and is terrific both close-up and from a distance.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

*********OK, so I guess no one likes the circles?? lol


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Yet one more vote for the bluebell - especially if you are doing a solid color leather or "Naugahyde" like material on the seat for sliding. I think the "Bluebell" would compliment it.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

If the maize is not as yellow irl, then I vote bluebell. And when you held the circles near the island.....gorge!


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I like the circles...lol I just like the bluebells more :)


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I love love love the circles! But I don't think they fit in with everthing else.

Bluebell!


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Bluebell!
Gorgeous kitchen.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I agree, if that light yellow one with some blue is the same as the mustard colored Maize one, my vote for it is off! lol


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Bluebell because it brings in the blue and yellow and goes with the overall vibe of the space.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I love the circles. very elegant!


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I like the circles the best. To me they fit in better with the style and feel of your kitchen than the florals do.

2nd choice is Dupione Maize. Too bad it reads as a solid from a distance. I think it would be better to see a little pattern in that spot.

Both of the above would work best with art work above the bench.

I like the florals the least. Once you cover that large of an area with one of them I think they would really compete with the rest of the room- which is so perfect right now.

Interesting to see so many different opinions.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I've always like the bluebells. And, I think they go with your marble great too... I like that they will give some texture from far away. They would be great as accent pillows, too.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

The Dupione maize is the sixth and tenth pic of the last set IRL. I dont think its for me. I am getting some larger pieces of the circles and the bluebell so I can get a better idea of them larger. It is a long seat.

The bluebell is quite pricey. Double all the others. Shocker!


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Oops.

Dupione Maize was going to be my first choice, even though it does read as more of a solid from a distance. Pillows from the circles and the two florals would give it any life needed.

The bluebell is one of the most appealing fabrics I've ever seen. I can imagine that the exacting printing adds to the price.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I'd like to vote for some pillows with bluebell and some with circles instead of all in one fabric. Can I do that?


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I like the circles close up with everything especially the counters and cabinets. You didn't show the maize and circles together - any chance you can do that or perhaps it isn't a possible mix. mmm - maybe not.

But I like the bluebells and the maize together.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Has Marcolo voted? He's helped you with your vision for your new kitchen all along...and probably will tell you what he thinks would look best in your overall space.

Of course, I still vote Bluebell :)


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Computer screens are VERY misleading, so our votes may or may not carry that much weight. You should go with your intuition.

I'd second (or third?) going with two fabrics instead of one. I think going with the bluebell and the maize, you'll get the best of two worlds. :-)


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

lavender- Marcolo has chimed in twice but not with a definite opinion. Just to tell me to take pics from far away and then to say the Dupione Maize reads solid. I know he is super busy with his renovation! PS- Did you see my reveal? I gave you a shout out in the opening and was hoping you liked how everything turned out : )

blfenton- The Maize and the circles don't seem to look as good together as the Circles with the Wyndham Wheat (striped fabric).

The Bluebells goes well with the Maize and the stripes.

***A lot of people are bringing up pillows. I MAY do them for when there's company, but they will mostly be in the way so I don't want to base my decision on pillows b/c they will probably be in the closet a lot! LOL

 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I like the circles but would be careful about the light colored background. Might be a bit light for your daily dropped food on the banquette.

Dupioni and Blubell are my favs. I think bluebell might hide stains the best.....


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Whose comment did you not see in your reveal threads--lavender's or mine? I did pipe, in with loud huzzahs.

I'm a little hesitant to commit on your fabrics because I don't trust monitors, but to me the Bluebell seems the way to go. The Dupioni seems to turn a bland green from a distance, or maybe that's just in pics. And dupioni--is that a silk? Yikes!

Do pay close attention to the background colors in these fabrics. Some of the original choices looked very pink or beige to me but you seemed to be interpreting them as white. Again, tough to tell on a monitor.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

marcolo- I saw your comment : )
All the fabrics are Sunbrella so hopefully staining and water resistance shouldn't be too much of an issue.

I know what you're saying about color on monitors.

Just wondering what you think about the circles? I ordered a yard of that and hopefully I can get a bigger piece of the Bluebell so I can get a better feel for both.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

From pics at least, I don't think what's prominent about that fabric is the circles. I think what stands out is the brown hemstitch pattern due to the greater contrast, and I don't know if I'd like it over a big area. It also has no aqua.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I agree with marcolo, from across the room I think all you would notice are the brown marks on the circles (though it is a very nice fabric in the right situation). The bluebells and the other larger floral are the only two that hold there own from across the room. The bluebell just seems to tie all the colours together in such a pretty way. Decisions decisions :)


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I think the circles are too modern for your space and a pattern with some blue that coordinates with your wall color would be better.


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

2LF - Sorry for not jumping in sooner - but I wanted to see on the computer vs phone...

I look at your eloquent kitchen and the swirly fabric pendants, your exquisite marble, your display shelves, and just your exceptional kitchen and I am not seeing the circles. I agree with the others - I think the brown dashes will stand out from the distance. (I used dots on mine - but a very different look and kitchen- but I would take yours in a heartbeat!)

I think the Bluebells match your style better (OK - remember the only person who matched you on help was a2gemini - so definitely, not the expert)

Did you talk to the fabric store about your leather on the stools - I know they were prefab but there are only so many sources for upholstery leather and I bet someone can get it for you.

You mentioned the cost of the BlueBell - in the grand scheme of things - probably is a drop in the bucket - the fabrication will most likely cost more than the fabric in either case (unless you DIY - not me - LOL)

I had decided on a fabric and went back to order ours - and then a different fabric popped right out at me - and it was perfect. Not sure how that works - I had the same thing happen with my cabinet color and counter - headed in to order and switched on day of order (but did go home to check even though I knew it was perfect)

Pillows - yup - got a collection in my closet - but for my banquette - I only have pillows for the back - but would not work with yours.

Soon :-)


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

OK, I saw a got a large piece of the circular fabric and like I thought (and Marcolo confirmed) when the lights are dim you only see the brown dashes and not the yellow circles. I do like it but I'll make a pocketbook out of it or something : )

SO, I'm doing the Bluebells and I found a Naugahyde color for the seat part of the bench that matches the Bluebells and my island stools almost exactly! : )


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

P.S.- I may use the Maize as an accent somewhere...

Yeah!!!! I was hoping that you were posting pics of the finished banquetts. I am so anxious to seeit!


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

I am curious as to how much fabric you needed for the cushions? I always have this fear that when I love a fabric that by the time I get around to ordering it it will be out of stock. I am very tempted to guesstimate how much I would need and order while the going is good!
Looking forward to seeing the final result :)


 o
RE: Final Vote.. I've Narrowed Down Banquette Fabrics

Dupione Maize and I think the wall surrounding it should have some artwork.
