Ideas for Weird Nook in New Loft?

Good Questions

Q: I just signed a lease for an awesome downtown loft in Knoxville, TN. The space is amazing and airy in a pretty industrial area. I love the space and can't wait to get in there, but I am stumped about what to do with this weird nook in my long and narrow living room.

I am sure it was meant to be an office nook, but I just don't have much need for a home office. My landlord is game for minor changes, but I have no idea what to do with it. I have tossed around the idea of a tiny nook library, or just going with an office. What I don't want is for it to become a defacto closet/catchall storage disaster? Any ideas?
