A window seat is a classic way to use corner space
Paul Whicheloe

Offer a Front-Row Seat

The big idea: Capitalize on scenic views by creating a comfortable corner retreat with an L-shaped window seat. Tall casement windows with divided panes welcome natural light and a breeze, ideal accompaniments for savoring the latest page-turner. The arrangement also provides seating for several friends. Simply pull up a round table and you've got a dining nook.

Notice the details: Deep drawers with beaded-board fronts can hold blankets and extra pillows. Cushions make the seat even more inviting; we suggest covering them with a UV-resistant fabric to prevent fading in the sun.
