The two plush chairs create a cozy conversation area. Having a big ottoman and floor lamp by the striped chair makes it an ideal spot to curl up with a good book.

The cottage-style wall unit provides a perfect place to display memorabilia and photos. The center armoire converts into a desk. When the homeowner is done working, she can just close the flip-down door and relax.

An Aubusson rug anchors the seating area and works perfectly with the wall color. Aubusson is a scenic tapestry-style rug or upholstery that resembles needlepoint. It is named after the town in France where the style originated.

Kenneth's Tip: Ask the retailer if you can take a rug home first to look at in the space before you make the final purchase.
