SUNKEN ROOMS CAN BE COOL; throw some cute cushions in that pit and you’ll have an awesome hangout area. Most of the sunken living spaces I’ve seen have been circular, but who’s to say they can’t be any shape? No doubt, circle pit is definitely the most cozy. There might be something about taking three steps down into your living room that transforms the entire ambiance of your home – or maybe not. One thing is for sure, it sure looks pretty darn comfortable.
