These are amazing. I really want one in my library...
We have an alcove sofa in our office. It looks great but it's not comfortable and it has some weird arbitrary detailing that makes it seem the opposite of clever.The one we have has the high walls that are attached with zippers. It seems like you could lower the zipper and fold down the side and back panels for different levels of privacy but the panels are rigid and don't fold, making the zippers pointless.
Got a tip, home tour, or other story our readers should see?
