This window seat has the slots in the front to circulate the fin-tube baseboard heat behind. There is also storage under the cushions, behind the heat. Glad you like it!

That really depends on your intended use. These were designed to not be too high so the cushions would cover the lower part of the window sash, but tall enough to work in the baseboard heat behind the face.

That is a tinted plaster designed to come close to #2159-50 Wheatfield from Benjamin Moore paints.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shoshana Gosselin added this to 19 Double-Duty Living Rooms
Lounge space. Add some backless cushions to stretch out on and see the view out your window. I would always be in this simple, sunny room if it were my living room.

potentially for our loft area - which we were considering making the "sun area" . we want a space that we can make into an area designated for working out / relaxing with a space heater when it is grey outside. also in the area we want to have plants to pick up our spirits.
