- Hi everyone! What do you call the whole crescent seating with white cabinets in this picture?

Thanks very much!

I looked up "crescent seating" on Google Images, which brought up photos of similar seating arrangements. The chief difference was that that furniture all seemed to be designed for patios and fire pits. Which is odd, because "crescent seating" seems like a pretty good term for what is depicted in your photo. :)

I think "semi-circular {bench seating / bench seating unit}" is reasonably accurate, save for the quibble that it's not a full semicircle.

If it had a backrest it could be described as a banquette.

The cabinets can also be referred to as storage lockers.

I think that whole space is a bay window...and a pretty nice one, at that. Those are window seats.
