Sit and stow Curling up on a window seat and watching the world go by is a lovely way to pass the time. And a window unit could easily double as storage, as this image suggests. To achieve the same effect, simply line up wooden fruit crates along the floor and screw them together at their sides. Or you could try turning a slim shelving unit or CD tower onto its side. The openings provide an ideal space in which to store books, CDs and magazines, while on top you could soften the space with a foam seat pad or cosy cushions, or simply use it as a display space, as here.
