I think every house needs at least 3 window seats. Maybe one on every window 😉 Window seats are perfect in any weather — soak up the sun, watch the rain come down, gaze on the snowy landscape, take in autumn’s beauty. And they’re great for sitting while you read, chat, work on the computer, nap, eat… just about anything! So we collected 20 inspiring window seats for ya. You’re welcome.
