What is a window seat?


  • A window seat is a miniature sofa without a back, intended to fill the recess of a window. In the latter part of the 18th century, when tall narrow sash windows were almost universal, the window seat was in high favor, and was no doubt in keeping with the formalism of Georgian interiors:

  • Today, window seats are generally built-in with additional storage space underneath the seat. It’s the perfect solution to sit up close and view the scenery outside – not to mention using the space to enjoy an early light breakfast with a good book.

Perfect for recessed windows


  • Imaging having a recessed window as illustrated above without the window seat. It would be an empty space that can be used for a floor lamp, small table, or sitting chair.
  • But doesn’t the window seat look best? Especially how it is decorated to compliment the bedroom colors and styles.
  • QUESTION: what else to add?

    INFO: you can compliment the recessed look but adding some decorative book cases. Just enough depth to add a secretary desk for note taking and planning tomorrow tasks before retiring to bed.
