Tufted Banquettes

I am mad about tufting, especially tufted banquettes.  This mile long purple velvet tufted banquette in this Parisian Hotel is incredible.  We once created a banquette along a twelve foot wall to add more seating in a client's media room and upholstered it in chocolate leather with channeling versus tufting all the way to the ceiling.  I would love to design a tall tufted built in banquette for a dining room.  It is so custom and unexpected that it would add instant drama to a space.

Me too! I could nest on these banquettes for eons! I begged a client to put one on a mirrored dining wall, all to no avail. We missed an opportunity for total fabulousness.
