Family room ~ I'm pretty sure I could make something like this.a few old pallets sanded back, a slab of mattress foam and pretty material to sew it up with. invest in some pretty cushions and you have a cheap as chips lounge!
this would actually be a really fun idea to bring light into the space. a ladder could go against the wall where the metal desk is now with string lights. it would be nice to see walking into the room from the hallway
