Who Needs Arms Anyway ? * Part ll

These are fun.
You can use them in a dining room as seating at your dining table
It would be used  instead of a ready made banquet.
And if you did that you would gain at least 30"
in the room by putting the armless piece it against the wall of the dining room.
Just pull the table up and slightly over it. I have found that pedestals work best,
that way there are no table legs fighting you to get in or out.

The Juliet from Lexington

An armless sectional * heaven.

Liz Claybourne by Lexington

This is an armless sectional I designed and had made for that boyfriend .
It was no less than fabulous.

These 2 are divine anywhere
Don't you agree?.

This is just elegant.

This is a bit too funky for me, but it is certainly armless.

Again....these could be perfect in the right fabric, and in the right room.

She does armless too.

Just remember if you do a banquet for dining,
remember it must be armless.
If it is not it is too hard to get in the seat with out moving the whole piece.
And most of the time others are sitting on it too at the same time as you.

Would you use a banquet for a dining area 
in your home ?
Do you think it would look cozy 
and elegant ?

    ou nice

    I need the glamor one w/the fringe - ou le tre' baby

  2. I actually prefer your "Boyfriend" design best of all. It's boxy the way I like, feet and all. Best suited to book end or chain gang together.

    Yes, it's all about the banquet in the kitchen for me. I prefer a big white vinyl booth!

  3. michelle obama needs those arms.
    but me? no, no arms and my banquet does not either.

    love the barbara barry selection!

    thank you. i like the one i did best too.
    it has bench seats ,
    they are almost like 2 twins put together. and that was the idea.
    he had kids and when they had extra guest over the sectional could accommodate them.


  5. Love them in the dining room...changes it up a bit. Missed you at market. Were you there, what did you think?

  9. I like the idea but would have to cover it with glass...I'm a slob and the thing would be ruined in a week!
