This! This is what I want to do!

I have an office in our house at home. It’s small, does not have a window, and is on the top floor of our house so the ceiling is sloped on one side because of the roof. Space is limited, and right now that limited space is mostly taken up by a far-too-large desk for my computer, and a janky, dusty, horrid love seat that my wife bought at a garage sale for a nickle and some seashells many, many years ago. I’ve wanted to do something about that office for a long time; the room geometry makes picking new furniture difficult – so I’ve been giving a lot of consideration to trying my hand at building some custom things to go in there.

THIS! This is what I want! There’s no way it could be this big, but the concept of big, cooshy seating with lots of integrated, built-in storage is *exactly* what I want for that room. I’ve even envisioned a seating area built up against the sloped ceiling, which would then be able to use the empty space behind the seating area for storage – *much* like this.
