Restaurant de Waag Leiden I like combo of long & cafe tables. I would put the cafe tables (single work stations) in the space as you first walk in. The long table(s) in that room with the angled gass window.
i think it would be adorable to do something like this in a kitchen. have a chalkboard wall for kids, notes, to-do lists etc. add some cute lights and make a focal wall. probably on the side of the kitchen
