As the month of June wears on, I continue to think about my new apartment. And, more specifically, to seating. The challenge with my new space is going to be the lack of space. But I want to try to create a place I will want to come home to and part of that equation is creating a space that is comfortable and relaxing. In my last apartment I had a couch. I wasn’t too keen on initially having it, but I grew to love sitting there in the mornings with my cup of tea, a book, and She-beast resting on my lap. The couch was perfect because I could sit with my legs stretched out and rest my back against the side arm.
In my new space I will not have the room for a proper couch and my chair (both seen above) will probably take up too much room. So, I have been thinking about the possibility of building something sort of like this, a FOTM daybed (found on Design*Sponge). Wouldn’t that be a great alternative? Can I build things? Not really. But if I could have a place to read in the morning with my kitty on my lap, I would try my hand at DIY. I’ll keep you posted.
