What a beautiful nook and so practical. The corner is probably used every day all day and the round outer part is perfect for adding extra chairs when you need them. Very clever and very beautiful.
History of the Breakfast Nook
“A colorful breakfast alcove which starts the day right for every member of the family and saves mother a step,” was the description of a breakfast nook from a 1920s Sears catalog. Introduced into kit houses in the 1910s and extremely popular through the 1920s for their space-saving efficiency, the breakfast nook or alcove became a standard feature in American homes. Located to catch the morning light, the breakfast nook would be positioned at a window just off the kitchen in an alcove or in a bay.
