Starting with a stunning canvas is the key to creating a one-of-a-kind retreat in your home — find inspiration for your project by exploring our designer options. When it comes to your bench, choose furniture that’s the right size and shape to be placed in front of your window with ease.

To complete the coziest of vibes, we recommend including a few variously sized throw pillows and one or two cozy blankets to curl up with while you relax.
