This dining space is not much wider than its window, but it has been maximised with the addition of built-in bench seating. Include storage under benches so you are not wasting any space. Add seat pads and scatter cushions in a mix of coloured fabrics. Squeeze the largest table possible between the two benches and make the space special by hanging an oversized pendant light above. A lovely, cosy arrangement.
Add a table. The ultimate fuss-free option, a simple round table is a sure winner with those who don’t like larger, fitted pieces of furniture. Storage isn’t always about concealing belongings. Position a table in an alcove rather than adding built-in cupboards or shelving and use the tabletop for practical as well as decorative objects, such as lighting, ornaments and photo frames.
Flowers, leaves and fluttering butterflies are such uplifting images, and they’re scattered over the fabulous selection of textured cushions in the range. Choose intricate embroidery, or prints like this bright cushion.
Pep up a breakfast table and bench with a laid-back palette of soft purples, pinks and greys. Warm up a neutral backdrop with a harmonious mix of stylish cushions of various textures in heather and ash tones to create a tranquil space. Pretty up the table with a delicate crochet table runner and a mix of tableware in pastel shades to continue the relaxed vibe. A large chalky, woven light shade hung off centre creates an almost moonlit setting.
