Bank On It

The lady of the house requested that the formal dining room be set up around a banquette, a decision Howard supported wholeheartedly. “It actually became my favorite piece in the house,” Howard says. “I had it upholstered in China Seas’s Java Java fabric and treated to be stain resistant, so it’s easy to take care of.”

Get the Look: The table is from Mrs. Howard. The chairs are from Mecox Gardens.
