Since ancient times a small sofa seat with soft cushions has been a luxurious item for upscale, comfortable, and modern home interiors. And today, a contemporary sofa seat brings a beautiful interior design detail that helps create a cozy room with a welcoming corner nook or a window seat for reading and resting in style.

Adding a window bench to interior design – classic, traditional, rustic, or contemporary, is a practical and timelessly modern idea. This new design, blending contemporary style and a vintage-furniture look, is by designer Inbar Paradny Kalomidi, based in Israel. The window bench and storage shelves for books are comfortable and attractive. While bringing the classical sofa seat form, the contemporary window bench design looks modern and functional.

The contemporary sofa seat can be used for any room decorating, creating a cozy corner nook with this elegant bench or decorating a large bay window. The modern bookshelves add soft curvy lines to interior design and are perfect for displays of green house plants, books, or unique collections.
