I prefer a window seat on a plane. I like to be in my little corner looking out over the sky. I think some of the best thinking and contemplation can be done in a window seat. However, I am also that annoying girl constantly asking to use the restroom (that is what you get when you sit in an aisle!). I don’t just like a window seat on a plane, I like them in homes as well, and not in the 90’s sitcom type of style.
Window seats (sometimes referred to as banquets) can be a wonderful seating solution when you are tight on space, have an oversized window, or need to split up a long wall area. Upholstery is key when it comes to a window seat, as is the view. How the window is framed with drapery or shades is also an important component in the window seat world. Come to think of it, I have never lived in a house with a window seat. Maybe that is why I find them so fascinating. I’ll add that to my long list of #lifegoals.
An unconventional window seat on the outside courtyard of the house. Doesn’t get more chic than this.
A window seat used in a den setting. I love how the texture is applied and the TV is placed.
