...or not, as the case may be.
I'm a big fan of the home decor site Apartment Therapy, but sometimes I'm amazed at how impractical they can be. Take, for example, this area, which they glowingly describe as a "bright book corner":
Um, what? Who would read there? The description mentions curling up with a book, but would anybody actually "curl up" on a metal chair? Plus, I don't see a reading lamp, and the only natural light source looks fairly high up on the wall. I'm not saying the space isn't cute, but "Highly decorated bookshelf space, anchored by chair too uncomfortable to actually sit upon" might be a more apt description.
