Fabric for our new Banquette

 12 Sep, 2009 |  Written by Anupa Mueller

banquetteWho knew there were so many choices in banquettes?!  First, there's the style, then the height, then the backrest, then the headrest, then the fabric and finally the vinyl.  Whew!  For those of you who visit our site, you are by now familiar with our colors - mustards, warm oranges, greens.  So we selected a fabric for the backrest to stay within this color family.  We selected a deep brown/burgundy for the vinyl seat to contrast well with the fabric shown here.  I hope you like it when it's done and installed in the Tea Room after the expansion.

Diane – glad you enjoyed the Kilimanjaro Blue and I’m so sorry we will not be able to host your celebration. We owe you a cup of tea!

I found your blog while looking for a banquette for my kitchen. Can you tell me which company you used for yours?

I selected Rollhaus Seating as my final selection but I also strongly considered Jay’s Furniture Products. Good luck with yours.

I am anxious to see the new tearoom! Your color choices look great. comfortable and cozy.
I got my delivery of rooibos tea today. thanks for the extra kilimanjaro blue.
We were going to come for my annual birthday celebration lunch….which unfortunately is on Sept. 22nd! Guess I will be celebrating late this year.
In August I went to Charleston SC and visited the Charleston Tea Plantation. It was a very interesting place to see, especially since it is the only place in North America that grows tea and I am sure I will never get to Inda!
Best wishes on your construction. Change can be new and exciting and something to look forward to but scary at the same time, and construction can often be a nightmare! Hopefully things will go smoothly and we will see you soon!
