Sophisticated Dining Nook

Double-duty furnishings create an instantly elegant eating area.

In a small space, every piece counts. Here, a low-slung bench becomes a built-in banquette when pushed against the wall in front of two Barbara Barry side tables. A free-standing screen allows the homeowner to fake a separate dining room.
