The seat is naugahyde vinyl and the Greenhouse Bluebell fabric is a SUNBRELLA fabric. We were originally doing cushions but decided to upholster it so no moving cushions.

SOOO glad to be done... Oh, except we have to buy a table! Our demo began 11 months ago- The whole thing from the start of planning was 1 year 10 months ago... whew!

It looks so comfy!

It looks right at home there! Great job.


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

Wowza -- that's the most elegant banquette I've ever seen! The sweet fabric keeps it from being *too* sophisticated, and it fits right in with your lovely kitchen. Brilliant idea to put the butt-friendly naugahyde on the bottom cushion :-)


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

Hi Fishies !
What a perfect touch to your beautiful kitchen !
I love absolutely everything about it !
Can't wait to see what you choose for your table.
Best to you.i


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

Absolutely divine! Should be in a magazine!


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

It goes perfectly! I can't wait to see the final "final" reveal with the table!

Great space fishes. :)


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

Gorgeous!


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

It's very cute, Fishies. You've thought of everything, and now your kitchen is complete. I hope you and your family have great meals and happy times there.

Curious...how is the bluebells part of the banquette held in place? Can it be removed for cleaning, or do you spot-clean in place?


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

It wasn't my favourite choice of fabric - but I'm glad I didn't give my opinion......it is fabulous! I love, love, love your kitchen. So jealous! I'm waiting to see the table too. Keep posting - I've shown your kitchen to my sisters and we are all anxious to see the final reveal. Thanks


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

Very well done! Love the Bluebell fabric, too. How did they attach it to the back?


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

you chose well...that will get some serious use....doesn't your backyard have a pool? looks like your seating around island and banquette can handle some damp suits with the smart fabrics you picked....Indoor/outdoor is wonderful...


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

That looks great! They did a nice job matching the pattern, too. Very pretty.


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

So gorgeous! Love it! Congrats on a beautiful kitchen!


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

How lovely ... it works so well with the rest of the room. I can imagine relaxing there with a cup of coffee and the morning paper just enjoying the fruits of your labor.


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

Forgot to ask. What kind of table and chairs will you be using with it? Do you have those yet? Looking forward to seeing it all together.


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

Zowie! It is perfect in your kitchen. I love it!
What style table are you planning. What material?


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

I love what you chose! I love the look of banquettes, but always wonder if they'd bother me personally a little for getting in/out etc. Yours is the most inviting & beautiful, while at the same time comfortable and practical that I've ever seen! Can't wait to see it with table!


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

Love the fabric you chose for the banquet space. What color paint did you use of the wall?


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

Thanks so much everyone! The rest of the buttons got put on today and it looks great.

oldbat2be- you crack me up!! : )

herbflavor- Yes, we have a pool, but we are pretty strict about not sitting with damp suits in the house. But yes, you're right- it's always good to plan for it anyway!

The Bluebells fabric is a Sunbrella fabric. I'm thinking it should wear well. The foam was glued on and then the fabric is stapled and nailed into the bench. The buttons are nailed with special nails into the plywood bench. Supposedly they can't come out unless you really try to pull them out very hard.

The upholsterer was a real perfectionist and really took his time when designing it and actually doing it. He was here almost 3 full days. He says down the road to redo it will be easier being the design is there. Also the seat can be unscrewed and removed in order to work on the back. The seat was constructed on a piece of plywood and then the wood and foam was wrapped in dacron and then the vinyl.

Here are some other photos.

As far as a table, I'm broke. lol Seriously we just also did work outside (sprinklers, grass, awnings) so we aren't buying a table anytime too soon. I have some ideas regarding the size it needs to be, etc. but won't get into that right now : ) We do have our old table which fits fine except it has 4 legs which makes it hard to slide into the banquette unless you pull the table out. We really only have been sitting at island anyway!

Thanks again for all of your comments and for following my kitchen along the way!


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

It looks beautiful! That fabric is just perfect :)


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

Totally off topic of the banquette (which is absolutely adorable...as previously said!)...what colour is your beam between the kitchen and the dining area painted?


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

ali80ca- The beam (as well as the whole kitchen/DR minus the blue wall) is painted BM Elephant Tusk.
I love it. When it was first painted it seemed too yellow-y but once the Barley cabs went in it was totally right : )


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

That's what made me ask...in the one photo it looked yellowy, but I didnt think it was the same as the cabinets. Your kitchen is sunny and cheerful but at the same time so calm, it truly is beautiful. I hope you get many years of use out of it :)


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

How exciting! How pretty! I love the bluebells. It was one of my favorite fabrics. I also LOVE that you did a contrasting seat fabric! I think it looks phenomenal.


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

Success! Looks great.

I totally believe you that you won't be looking for a table for a while. No, really.


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

I posted a question on your 2nd reveal thread but then it fell off the first page.

So slightly OT, but how do you like your DW? I am ordering it for my new kitchen and was wondering how well it dries and how quiet it is.

Love your kitchen - all of it. It makes me smile.


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

marcolo- Too funny.... and you're right!
Thanks! What's new with you?

marthastoo- Love our DW : ) It dries very well except for some of the plastic items but that doesn't bother me. It's also very quiet (from what we had!). I love the 3rd rack and really have no complaints!


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

You NAILED it!!!
Awesome
Yellow sings to my heart! ... so your kitchen is talking to me :)

Going to look for fabric friday... hope I can find something as wonderful as yours!
Love it

 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

i love this! The sunbrella fabric was a great idea. can you tell me more about this fabric? is is supposed to be easily washable/cleanable? I am thinking about using such fabric for a bench in my great room but I want something I can clean easily because I know my special needs kiddo will get it dirty (the bench is for him because he loves to sit in the sun in the window :) )


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

Thanks jennybc : )

illinigirl- There are a lot of Sunbrella choices. They now do interior fabrics as well as exterior. There's lots of info on their site! Also, several companies make fabrics in Sunbrella- meaning I used Greenhouse Fabrics but it was made by Sunbrella for them.

Beautiful work.

I was thinking of you a while back --

Do you have room for a little Gustav Klimt art - "The Kiss" ?
http://www.allposters.com/-st/The-Kiss-Klimt-Posters_c84546_.htm

It has all your colors. It has both yellows - the brighter one, and the deeper yellow / caramel on your cushion. The most visible other color is your blue.

Our annual vacation was a "Hello Mozart" vacation during Christmas in Salzburg and Vienna.

In the Vienna Christmas outdoor markets one vendor was selling Klimt things. We picked up a tote bag with "The Kiss" on it, several change purses with the Tree of Life on it, and a smart phone case with "The Kiss" for me.

Every once in a while, someone who sees my phone case and gushes, "Oh you like Klimt too!! I admit - no, I had never heard of Klimt till last Christmas..

Goodness, I wish I had bought 20 of those change purses, I would have stocking stuffer gifts ready for a long time. People back home fight over who got the 3-4 we bought.

RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

OMG, perfect!!! I love the prints and the banquette looks awesome. Wouldn't have thought it possible for your kitchen to get any prettier!

Just curious, do you have a separate formal DR in your house?


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

Thanks, homebuyer! No, we don't have a formal DR... It's a small Cape and to maximize space and functionality we decided kitchen/DR would be one room and get the most use. We still need a new table but actually we don't sit at it much yet.
We always eat at the island which seats 5-6.

Thanks again : )


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

That is really beautiful! You are a master at details. Everything you add is just layer upon layer that fits together for such a pleasing result. Wish I had that ability. May you enjoy your kitchen for many happy years!

I agree with Nini--your kitchen should be in a magazine.


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

"Wouldn't have thought it possible for your kitchen to get any prettier! " took the words right out of my mouth. Every time I see this thread topped I heave a sigh.

The bird prints compliment that space so well. When you say you "had them made", are they painted or fabric? paper cut outs? Lovely.


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

***I'm thinking the table will be a walnut top like my island and the 2 Countertops on either side of the banquette bench. With a creamy white base. Too much walnut??

The prints are from Etsy. There were different variations and I sent swatches of my paint and fabrics for the best colors

Fishies! You cannot eat all your meals at the island!!! It's very pretty, but if you don't start using that beautiful banquette and lovely window seat...I'm going to drive over there and make you sit down and have tea with me! LOL

The little bird pictures are wonderful and you've done a fantastic job with your new kitchen and dining area. Better than I ever imagined....and I knew it would be nice, when you were choosing your fabrics :)

Beautiful! I agree you must start using the banquette. It is part of your home that will create many wonderful memories.


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

Thanks everyone! I don't know why we haven't used it! I think just b/c for several months without the upholstery it just wasn't usable (seat felt low, etc) and with the old table there the kid's school, coloring papers, etc.. tend to hang out there...

We definitely need to start using it!! : ) Thanks for all the comments here xo Fishies


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

You really have a spectacular space...it's more than a kitchen/dining room - it's the total package!

I love how you put the blue bird on the end versus the center.

RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

Fishes-I'm just beginning to work on my banquette in a 90" inch long (window side) and 42" wide U space.

Any tips or design layout on how your carpenter made the wood component. I feel comfortable mine can do curves also. I'm considering doing a similar wood frame along the 90" window wall to allow greater space for a table.

Thank you very much for any help. Your kitchen is simply splendid.

RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

Fishies - I think (I hope!) that I commented on how lovely your kitchen is sometime earlier when you first posted.

I have some questions regarding the banquette seating - can you tell me how high up your base is for the seat? And how thick is the foam that you used? I assume it was high density foam. It looks like you used a wood base to adhere the foam - we're hoping not to do that since we would like to be able to flip our cushions every once in a while...but how much does the foam seem to crush down when you sit? We're trying to get an idea of what we should use and how high we need to make the actual seat portion itself before placing the cushion.

Now that you've had everything in place for a few months, any things that you would do differently?


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

Hi andreak! You mean how high is the seat from the floor? At first (without upholstery) I was afraid it was too low but the upholsterer did a fantastic job and it is perfect.

The bottom of the seat (underneath) is 14 1/4" from the floor. The top of the seat (without cushion is just under 15 3/4"... The top of the cushion to the floor is about 19" at end but it seems to poof up a bit after the edge. I don't know the thickness exactly of the foam but I'd say 3".

The reason we used a piece of plywood to adhere the foam is that the seat was made a bit shallow and with a back cushion the seat wouldn't be deep enough. In other words when you sat on the seat without a back cushion it felt perfect so we needed to built the seat out a bit so with back cushions would be comfortable.

I wouldn't change anything! The only thing to take into consideration is the size table you will use. We are having one custom done because with our dimensions none of the standard sizes would work very well. Of course being it is custom it will cost more money.

I hope this helps! Good luck!


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

So, so pretty and cheerful. I love the butter yellow cabinets and banquette area!


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

Little Fishes, love your little birdies and I think the table you have looks great. So happy this thread resurfaced, because I didn't see the prints before. Your banquette upholstery dude did an amazing job. Meticulous! I want it that craftsmanship! Where are you located?

Also where is the window seat? I paged back thru the pics to see it in the context of your space but didn't find it.
What's on the other end of your kitchen behind where you've taken most pictures, behind that narrow end of the island opposite the table side? Does it open to another room or is the window seat on that side?
Looks like you have glorious light from all sides in that space.

RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

island- We're getting a new table. We need a pedestal so the legs aren't in the way. We've had this one for years. The new one is being made. We are in NJ.

The bay window is between the fridge and the organizational cabinetry to the left of the banquette.

Here is the final reveal... maybe that will help you see the whole space? : )

Hi 2 Fishes. The link you posted is for this thread, not a final. Shows the fridge, but not the window seat. Can you post the final reveal if you have it? I'd like to read the list of details if you included that. Thanks

Thanks! Thanks different than what opens up for me when I click on "Final Reveal Thread" provided 3 posts back.
Wow what a huge difference!! Hard to believe it's the same space.
Can see the window seat now, love it, and your kitchen is stunning from every angle. Your home exterior is so cute too.
Thanks for taking the time to answer Qs and repost the thread.
Of course, you must post back when you get the new table. :>)


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

OMG, this kitchen is seriously adorable. I love the soft yellow and blue. What a nice cheery kitchen!


 o
RE: 2LittleFishies Banquette for Yellow Kitchen... CHECK!!!

Fishies - yes, that helps quite a bit. Our banquette seating won't be nearly as beautiful as yours - we're going a bit more utilitarian and having storage drawers under the seating and we won't have the lovely curve that you do - ours will be L-shaped.

I've been struggling with how much the high-density foam (HDF) will wind up compacting down when we sit on it, so it's hard to decide how many inches is enough. I've read that the dacron overwrap doesn't really add to the overall height when sitting - it's purpose is to make everything fit smoothly around the HDF. Hard to decide if 3" or 4" foam is the best bet...but if you think you have 3" and it's comfortable, I'm thinking that I'll go that way.

Good warning about the table. With the curve you have, it probably would be very difficult to get a standard table to work. Although we won't have the curve challenge, we're leaning toward having a table made anyway...we're hoping to do a live edge slab table - we fell in love with some that we saw at the resort we vacationed at and I've been just slightly obsessed with them ever since.

Thank you for the help. Every time I see pictures of your kitchen, it just makes me smile - your kitchen is something that I'd never have the foresight to put together, but it really is lovely and inviting. Looking forward to seeing your table when it gets finished.
