You can technically meditate anywhere. I've meditated on my sofa, in my bed, in the conference room at the office, even on a city bus. But that doesn't mean I wouldn't like a cozy corner dedicated to my daily practice. Here's what my space for mental escape would include.

Multiple seating options. An oversized chair wide enough to sit cross-legged in, like the (aptly named) Bliss Chair and a half ($649), is a must for me. A leather pouf from Furbish ($285) could be a footrest, a seat closer to the ground, or a side table if you feel like sitting pretty on a Dhurrie rug (from $195). 

Light control. These lined Marrakech curtains (from $85.95) filter sunlight, while dark nights may call for some extra illumination from a bronze floor lamp ($149). When only candlelight will do, let the flames flicker from golden dahlia candleholders ($19.95).

Tangible texture. A cool linen/cotton throw ($188) and accent pillows ($17.48$24.99) add softness and comfort. A sculptural stool ($89.99) offers a place to rest a book or glass. 

Do you have a dedicated meditation space?
