Good Questions: Furnish This Turret on a Budget?

While looking at apartments, I saw this one with its very own turret-like area off to the side. I loved the way there were three windows that let in lots of light. But now, it's six months later, and I still haven't figured out what to do with the space! As you can see, it's practically bare, with just a rug and a few folding chairs (the chairs are so my cat has easier access to the window sills). I've thought about getting a round rug, putting two chairs in, and making it a reading nook. But seeing as how I'm likely to move in less than a year, I'm hesitant to buy anything really expensive that will only work in this space. I should also mention that the space is about 10 feet in diameter. Any suggestions?

What a fun — and challenging — space! We'd go for a large round rug and some of the more relaxed-looking poufs (we like the ones from West Elm)for a quick and relaxed space.

Who else has suggestions?
