6 Ways our Customers are Styling Banquettes

6 Ways our Customers are Styling Banquettes

Banquette tables are a staple in our furniture collection because they are extremely versatile and can be customized for any space. We love how they allow any space to become a communal area for eating and spending quality time together.

Why We Love Banquette Tables

A banquette is a built-in bench style seating area that is commonly added to kitchens and dining rooms. Because banquettes can be designed in virtually any space, their dimensions vary considerably! A great banquette table is one that is just the right height and length to comfortably accommodate the banquette.


This type of dining table is extremely popular with condo dwellers and in stacked townhouse style homes where there is not always a dedicated dining room. They’re perfect for small spaces, eat-in kitchens, or unique room layouts. 

Solutions for Small Dining Areas

A full-sized dining table is not always the most practical piece of furniture in every home. Banquette dining tables provide a functional solution to make the most of your space. By nestling part of the seating into a banquette, you maximize the available space in a room and allow for greater flow and openness. 

Customize Your Banquette Table

We can custom tailor your banquette table to ensure it fits the ideal configuration and the layout of the space. By having your banquette table custom made, you ensure that it’s the perfect fit!


Our banquette tables are fully customizable, from the wood species to the finish and the dimensions, and even the shape of the table top. Many clients come to us looking for softer, rounded corners for easy flow in and out of the banquette without whacking your hip! We also offer many base and leg options to optimize seating for the best and most comfortable fit. Your furniture, your way.

Elevate Your Dining Room with a Modern Banquette

Modern wooden furniture can elevate your dining room. We love to see how our customers style their Son of a Woodcutter pieces!


Here are some real life examples for inspiration.


Walnut Banquette Table With an Angled Base

This walnut banquette dining table has an angled base that is perfectly suited to maximizing leg room in small spaces. Here it is set up in a traditional dining room layout, flanked on one side by a long three-seater banquette. We love how Julie Taylor Interiors has styled this piece! The walnut wood complements the pop of royal blue fabric on the banquette and adds richness. 



White Oak Banquette Table



This white oak banquette table adds to the bright and airy feel of this eat-in kitchen space. The lighter wood finish gives a modern, clean look to compliment the neutral palette of the surrounding décor. The size of this custom piece fits well within the room, allowing ample space to enter and exit the banquette. We love how allowing more breathing room helps to open up the space both visually and functionally.


Fun fact: Christina designed the openings in the base of the cabinet along with the design of the table legs so that this family of five could have the flexibility of pushing their table against the wall for busy mornings or late night dance parties!




Banquette Table with Trapezoid Legs



We are loving the unique styling of this banquette layout! Having the banquette at the head of the table, rather than having it laid out laterally, gives this space a very cozy feel. This is also a great example of how to customize banquette seating to fit your individual space. This layout doesn’t take away from necessary cabinet storage and still allows for a full table setting to be placed. 


This walnut banquette table with black trapezoid legs is a great fit for this unique layout and the wood furniture pairs beautifully with the rich navy hue of the cabinets. 



White Oak Pedestal Banquette Table

This white oak beauty is a custom variation of our Angular Pedestal Table. This one features a straight edge and is tailor made to fit this banquette corner setting. 


Having the table nestled in the corner like this gives a cozy, homey feel. It’s the elegant, elevated version of the corner booth of your favourite restaurant. The lighter wood is a great choice to offset the deep sage tones of the banquette fabric.


This is a great example of how we can customize your banquette table to fit your unique space, such as being bordered on two sides by banquettes as seen here.



A modern, curved take on the banquette table 

This example showcases a more modern, minimalistic take on the banquette table. This custom curved piece was designed to fit this space with beautiful tambour finishes.

This sleek banquette table adds dimension to the space, adding visual interest with the tambour details and the light wood. Sometimes less is more!

A sleek, elegant space

We love this sleek table and how it complements the wooden bench. The racetrack shape makes for optimal ease in and out of the banquette. Pairing this curved shape with the soft under bevel and thinner profile table top gives this banquette a sleek and elegant feel. For this table, the base can be done in either black or white steel, or solid wood. The tabletop can be done in any of our wood and finish options to suit your particular space.



Design a Table That Fits Into Your Space

As you can see from the examples above, our banquette tables can be completely customized to suit your space. We offer a range of sizes, bases, wood species and finishes to tailor your banquette table to adapt perfectly to any home. These designs are just a glimpse into what we can do.

Meet Jack, Owner and Founder of Son of a Woodcutter

Son of a Woodcutter was started back in 2012 by Jack Fouracre, who grew up in the English countryside. Born the son of a woodcutter, he developed a passion for carpentry early on. But it wasn’t until he moved to Toronto, Canada that he founded Son of a Woodcutter. With most furniture options coming flat-packed in cardboard and a lot of low quality items on the market, he knew there was something missing.
