Two-Tier Built-In

A hybrid seat can make awkwardly placed windows look intentional, as in this home office. The bookshelf back displays keepsakes and reading material under the high window; the cushioned base tucks under the sill of the lower one. The bottom also does double duty with a bank of flush-front drawers that hold legal-size file folders.

Tip: Make your seat feel more sheltered by lowering the ceiling a few inches with a soffit that slopes toward the window.
