Not long and deep enough for taking a nap, this entry way window seat provides a comfortable area for seating in this always busy home area. We’d recommend to use thick fabrics that’s less likely to fade and can withstand everyday use and take advantage of a built-in storage place – to keep your seasonal clothing items or home décor.
