Window Seats and Banquettes

We recently talked with Jane Wallace, Designer and Owner of Vision Window Decor about the new trend we are seeing for window seats and banquettes.  Jane agreed “banquettes are a popular request of clients and window seats are always great space for extra seating.”  Jane shared some pictures of her recent projects, we love the styling and colors of the fabrics and pillows! “You can have a lot of fun with these types of projects, the fabrics and accents really bring it to life and the comfort of a window seat cushion can’t be beat.”

Perfect for kitchens, entry ways, sunny porches,  bedrooms and hallways.  They are attractive while comfortably utilitarian.  The fabric patterns chosen can pull the décor of a whole room together beautifully.
