Getting Comfy in a Dorm That Doesn't Allow Furniture?

Getting Comfy in a Dorm That Doesn't Allow Furniture?

Q: Currently I live in an NYU dorm room that is more like a luxurious apartment (lucky, I know!). I have this great common living area, but unfortunately the dorm policy is that no outside furniture is allowed. I believe this means no upholstered furniture like couches or futons.

Right now the space is kind of wasted because we don't have anything to put in it and there's no furniture for relaxing. What's a good way to use the space so people can hang out without violating NYU policies? Also, since I'm a poor student, I don't have much money to spend. Thanks for your help!
