Channel Tufted Banquettes

By Kate Riley January 31, 2024

I’m on the hunt for a new headboard for my daughter’s room turned part time guest room while she’s away at school. I’m drawn to the channel tufted versions in pretty colors but then I fell down the rabbit hole of channel tufted everything and discovered so many lovely banquettes that were equally inspiring. I have no space in my home for a banquette but I love this look so much, perhaps someday I’ll have an opportunity to install one in a different home.

Are you one of those people that prefers a booth to a chair when dining out? I always scour a restaurant or cafe for a booth to sit in instead of table and chairs. A classic channel tufted banquette has the aura of both coziness and elegance, and will guarantee to elevate any casual dining space.

  1. I LOVE a banquette! We are remodeling our kitchen and we have a perfect spot for a beautiful banquette seating area and there is such great storage in the seat. My husband is short and detests booths, detests banquettes. He won’t entertain the idea at all. It’s like a sectional, I love to get all cozy in the corner. I don’t like coffee tables, and he wants a giant one, so it’s all compromise. Also called no one gets what they want ;)

  2. one important factor to consider “slideability”. deep pile fabrics make the center seat difficult to access. Leather, etc, is the best.
