Not sure about their design but I have a few window benches in dormers at my place. They are kitchen cabinets that were built to be 20 inches tall instead off your normal 30 inches. Each are then equipped with doors and drawers for what you want.

Eclipse Designs Inc. by Celina Basagoitia
It looks like the Designer used either 1/2" or 1" Diam. iron rods, finish in antique gold. It is a very cozy and beautiful look the one in the picture. Since yours is too high for a window seat but it is deep enough to make it like a built-in console for display either of pictures or any glass or porcelain items you have. You could also have a granite or marble top made.

Can you close the drapes? If so, how is the seat built to allow it? Is it just not flush with the wall?

Those drapes are stationary and only for the purpose of framing the window.

This chair is by Lillian August upholstered with a Jim Thompson silk. You can look on their website for a retail store or design center near you that carries their product.

So do the drapes at the back just end where the cushion starts and they just hang there behind the cushions?

The Shabby Nest
Benjamin Moore's Falcon Brown is similar to the dark wall. And BM's Moccasin is similar to the lighter wall.

Love the tall windows - I love the tall windows! Do you know the height of the ceiling and how tall the windows are? Is the bay window seat 18" tall? We are planning an 18" bay window seat with 7' tall windows in a 9' ceiling. I am worried that the windows might look too tall and skinny, but these look great. Thanks!

How many brackets are used to hold the rod, and where are they placed? - Were three separate rods used, connected in the corners, or was one long rod - bent at the corners - used? While I suspect the former was used for this window, is it possible to use one long, solid rod in a bay window, with only three supporting brackets - one in the middle and one on each end?

drapery hardware? - i have the exact same window configuration in my living room (box/bay with identical dimensions) and want to replicate this treatment, ie 4 stationary pleated panels. can you tell me what hardware you used and where i might get it? specifically, how were the corners handled? elbow brackets? are the rods telescoping? also, how many widths of fabric were used per panel here? sorry for so many questions!
