Seating Area With Armchairs, Bookshelves, and Arched Window
This cozy living-room seating area features two unmatched traditional armchairs, bookshelves surrounding one window, an arched window to let in plenty of light for reading, and a cheerful striped rug that brings all the elements together beautifully.
Dining Nook With Square Arch and Banquette Window Seat
Adjacent to the family kitchen, this arched breakfast nook with dramatic Craftsman-inspired windows has ample seating for four or more, thanks to a large window seat that does double duty as a banquette.
Sage green molding, cabinetry and exposed beams fill this space with serene color. Arched doorways and alcoves create a cottage-style feel. A floral sofa and chair create a cozy seating area with plenty of natural light streaming in from the glass French doors.
Additional storage and seating is added in this small bedroom with an extra-long window seat. The built-in bench allows guests to enjoy the view from the arched window while incorporating storage drawers below.
This built-in bookshelf and an alcove window seat covered in throw pillows make for the perfect corner to relax with a good book. Pendant lights hang overhead illuminate the area while a nearby fireplace warms the space on cold days.
For unique character, the designer included vintage details like the globes above the desk and the brass animals. Like the window seat, this built-in desk is a smart choice for a smaller space, fitting handily into the sloped ceiling alcove.
Transitional Dining Room with Three Arched Windows
A triptych of arched glass windows surround wrap-around window seating in a neutral transitional dining room. A hammered copper breakfast tabletop is an elegant touch while a mix of funky patterned pillows add a fun splash of color.
The second-story addition houses a home office and relaxed loft. The new structural ceiling beams were exposed and painted a crisp white, giving the space a refreshing luminosity. The extra-long window seat and arched windows overlook the backyard pool.
Modern metallic artwork defines this bedroom seating area, which takes advantage of the New York home's roomy dimensions. Arched windows can be covered by draw draperies for privacy or left wide open for users to enjoy the view.
Architectural details, from the coved ceiling to the arched windows, make a dramatic impact in this living room's design. Centered on the fireplace, the warm, cozy seating area combines a classic sofa and leather armchair with contemporary black-and-white chairs.
White Transitional Living Room With Intimate Seating Area

White Transitional Living Room With Oversized Sectional Sofa
