Recent years have seen a movement away from traditional seating and an explosion in communal seating arrangements. Banquettes, which maximize a restaurant’s dining space by combining the use of a continuous bench or booth with movable chairs and tables, have become one of the most popular restaurant design trends in 2020. Banquettes take up much less area per customer than a typical free-standing 2-top or 4-top table, as they make full use of the wall space within a restaurant’s dining area.
Banquettes and other communal seating styles evoke memories of cozy, at-home dining experiences and create more social atmospheres. You’ll have a lot of new space to work with! So go ahead and get creative mixing shapes and sizes to make your restaurant banquettes unique.
