Our firm (Ehrlich Architects) designed the built in couch. The windows are Zelluck. Hope this helps!

Design considerations in having a buil in couch built?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to Industrial Chic Hearths
Chanel said to look in the mirror before going out, then take off one accessory off. This space adheres to the beauty of understatement.
This corner of a living room in residence designed by Steven Ehrlich follows the corner window that helps define the space. A bench with side table takes advantage of the natural light spilling inside, and the bench cushions align with the base of the fireplace. The latter is fairly common, as later photos in this ideabook attest.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Getting it Wright: Today's Prairie Style
The interior of the house also reveals Wright-inspired touches like the built-in seating next to the hearth and the corner window.
John Hill added this to Stunning, Surprising Corner Windows
The interior of the previous shot shows this projection conceptually extending into the room, lowering the ceiling over the built-in seating against the window. Everything about this corner — the window, the furniture, the ceiling, the fireplace — makes it a special place in the house.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Hunker Down With a Built-In Couch
Here is another clever, streamlined built-in couch design. By taking advantage of this space, the room can now seat three extra people comfortably. This is a great option for smaller spaces that may feel tight with too many freestanding furnishings.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Straight-Up Advice for Corner Spaces
The kitchen isn’t the only space that can benefit from built-in corner seating. Consider adding a custom bench to your living room, particularly if your space is on the smaller side. A streamlined design, like the one in this photo, decreases the bulk of freestanding furnishings and helps to open the space.
