When I think of spots where I like to “curl up and read,” I often focus on the little wicker loveseat above. That little bench has been with me for many years, and moves around from various spots in each home.
Years ago, it was like a window seat in my foothill home, and cats enjoyed it, too.
Then I added a few pillows for human comfort and moved it to my next home, where it landed near windows or bookshelves (as in the first photo above).
For a while, it also had pride of place in my former bedroom. I loved its coziness.
Now it sits at the foot of my bed in my current residence.
My pattern is to cling to my favorite things, especially when they’ve proven to be versatile, like the bench. I also have tables and other accessories that trail along after me in my various moves. Below, I used my antique ice cream table as an end table in my previous residence.
Before that, I used it as a sofa table for playing games…See the photo on the left portion of this “back in the past” collage…
Now I use it to “hold” my TV in my new place.
I have definitely diverged from my initial focus on the bench seat…LOL. But my point, apparently, is to show how I hang onto my various favorite things.
Do you have furniture/accessories/or collections that remain part of your life as you move from place to place? Or do you like to start over with a “blank canvas” wherever you are? And what are your favorite “curl up and read” spots?
