BANQUETTE | The Preuningers know all too well that pets can be a handful, so the kitchen is built for endurance. On the banquette, “the seat cushions are faux leather,” the designer says. “It’s very durable. It needed to stand up to heavy use.” Alice Preuninger prefers the banquette to a table and chairs. In the former space, “the table would move and the chairs would hit the wall.”
