The old days of faux leather banquette's are gone.  
They are being featured everywhere out there in 'design land'.
Tracery Interiors
 Some are of the untraditional nature by using a love seat to give the feel of the banquette.
Other's are built in.
Fun fabrics.

How about a quaint space for reading or dining?
Extraordinary wine cellar, love the tufting.
Clean contemporary lines...
...or more traditional flare.

Making the best of a small space.
Elle Decor
This is my favorite....the sense of sitting in a tree house.
Another fabulous setting. As an aside, how about those windows and door?
I'm a sucker for tufting.
Tufting (again) draws me in..., great curvy sofa, not really a traditional banquette, but it has the feel with the table set close.
My sister's lovely space.  Perfect for sipping champagne!
