I like the half booth, half chairs kitchen table they have here. It saves some space and allows for storage beneath the booth bench. Would be an excellent sewing area. Stow the machines under the bench. Add electrical socket under bench.
House of Turquoise: Tillman Long Interiors - This coffee table sparked an idea! I could use large Corbels, standing with base up, as legs for an interesting reclaimed piece of wood to make a coffee table.
