We have built a few custom windowseats over the years and they are such wonderfully useful built-ins. They provide seating and storage at an inviting, well-lit location, perfect for reading.
The white window seat shown here was installed in a client’s residence in Malvern, Pennsylvania horse country.
It featured five large drawers; one with a with custom lift-out wooden tray for storing smaller items above. The drawer fronts are raised panels and the fluted stiles help complete the traditional look.
The warmer, cream-colored window seat demonstrates a custom shape, other than the more frequently seen rectangle. This more simple and modern-looking piece was well-used in a lake house kitchen. The drawers stored games and toys and whatever needed to be hidden away. The pulls are matching wood. Installed over a transition between the tile and cork floors, the windowseat is a perfect fit!
Do you have a spot that could benefit from a beautiful and functional window seat? They enhance any room and can be tailored to every decor.
Here is a grouping of original furniture in a bedroom setting. The large armoire, bookshelf, dresser, and poster bed are all built out of walnut.
The natural cherry bedside changing table does triple duty as nightstand and dresser. The tall painted hutch has hidden storage and display spaces. It would work well in a more public spot in a home, such as a dining room or family room. Grey is a versatile neutral color that complements most decor.
The bench is an original design by the Springhouse. This one is built by hand out of Pennsylvania Maple wood and finished with black dye and extremely durable Duravar topcoats for a lifetime of use. This piece looks great at the foot of a bed, in front of your favorite sofa as a table, as a shelf for a flat screen TV
