Have a Seat!



Banquettes are a hot trend for the kitchen, and I have been spotting more and more outside. I spotted this Moroccan inspired bench in Dallas at the www.apld.org conference. Notice that the bench is neutral, and let the pillows and plants take center stage!
The blue cushion bench is the work of Margie Grace in CA. (visit gracedesignassociates.com to see more images of her work, photo here is by Nanette Lepere photography)
Built in benches make so much sense because they can seat more than a gaggle of chairs can - and they always look neat and put together! What do you think? Would this work for your landscape? Leave a comment below- is this an upcoming trend??? Kathleen @GMG
