It looks like a Montana bookcase. If you do a search you can see for yourself how many different sizes and posibilities there are.

I do believe that the ottoman is actually the bean bag chair "Barbarella" from the company Gode Vibrationer.

Wheels on chairs so you can chase the sun all afternoon while you read.

Could the glass roof be a possibility for an attic in an old Victorian house? If so, what's the approximate co - Our attic is accessed by stairway, has walking/standing room through 50%+ of the space, peaked ceiling lengthwise, & six attic windows. Its currently used for storage & not insulated. I envision either a multi-purpose space or master bedroom as possibilities. The glass ceiling is stunning & would tremendously increase the amt of natural light. Flooring is solid wood & sturdy but could be carpeted for increased comfort. Before I consider, I'm curious of the cost & possible needs (permits & such). Any suggestions?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A cozy reading nook. If you’re lucky enough to have an attic equipped with great windows, it’s likely to have the best sunlight in the house. Install shelving for books, pull up some comfy chairs and catch up on your favorite reads.
Scheer & Co. added this to Make a Space Special with Glass
This is an example of a great use of space in a potentially wasted room. The low/pitched ceilings present a challenge, but making them giant skylights brings in tremendous light. (Adding low bookshelves and comfortable seating encourages NOT standing too tall here). More: Life in a Glass HouseIndoors, Looking Out
This large great room has enough room for two seating areas as well as a work area for Bergsøe and her husband. This nook at the end of the space takes advantage of the room's slanted ceilings by creating a cozy reading spot with built-in shelving. Skylights open the space to the forested view. Armchairs: Bo-TikkenStriped cushion: Gode Vibrationer
Keep organized in tight spaces. Keeping things neat and organized is definitely part of the Scandinavian aesthetic. Josina Bergsøe's home in Denmark is a great example of using even the tightest space to squeeze in extra storage. If you have a challenging space like a sloped ceiling or tiny alcove beneath the stairs, consider having a pro install shelves or cabinets. It often costs less than you might think, and the improved use of space is worth it.
Cathy Lara added this to Sunrooms Shine in Different Ways
Kelly Scheer of Frisson says of this reading area, "[Here's] an example of a great use of space in a potentially wasted room. The low pitched ceilings present a challenge, but making them giant skylights brings in tremendous light."
Laura Fenton added this to Dig These Decorative Planters
A collection of potted plants in the home of blogger Josina Bergsøe takes advantage of the slanted skylights. The lime green pots act as a welcome pop of color in the room.
Samantha Schoech added this to Attic Bedrooms Rise and Shine
In this attic, half the roof became a skylight, making the room feel big and loftlike despite the low ceilings. More: Create more living space in the attic or basement
Furnish it with your favorite pieces. This space is all about relaxation, so scout furnishings that will encourage exactly that. “A cozy chair and ottoman are ideal so that the reader can put their feet up,” says interior designer Diane Bishop.
