Where to Find SpaceNab a Cozy Corner

A plump armchair and well-positioned floor lamp placed near some handsome shelves creates a sense of privacy. To take advantage of high shelf space, include an upholstered foot stool.Window Seats

A down-filled cushion provides padding for little bottoms.Bedside Manners
