Preferred Perch

I think it's safe to say that regardless of what the rest of this kitchen may look like, this dining alcove would be the most popular part of the room. The slightly angled banquette avoids the unsocial, shoulder-to-shoulder seating afforded by a straight bench. My own fantasy about this space would be to stretch out along one section, my back against the base cabinets, look up, and contemplate the treetops.
