Banking On A Banquette!

I am finally moving into my new house!  My old dear home has sold and I am getting on the moving van list for the next few weeks.  Meanwhile I have been trying to get  the new house move in ready.
There is one area of the house that is taking some getting used too and that is the kitchen family room.  I had a separate kitchen with dining in the old house but this is a kitchen family combo.  No table for eating area except in dining room.  What to do?.....

I definitely spy a spot for a banquette!
Now to figure out the best options, such as a custom narrow table and seating.
There are some great vignettes on Pinterest that I love,
 even if they don't work for me, they are great just the same

I have ordered the following banquette...
Lee Industries
To be upholstered in a celadon gray green faux mohair, with brushed nickel detail.
I am working on the table which will be a 48 x 28 oval.
I am just stuck on which base I like best...
Either a  custom one like this beauty or..
This but is an oval top and wood stained both so nice its hard to choose.
Stay tuned!
