wanted: cozy space in which to curl up with a good book and beverage of choice

Brrr.........days like today {read: rain, snow, snain} make me want to curl up with a good book on this delicious looking banquette designed by Jeffrey Bilhuber with a steaming hot café créme.....

I'm reading a biography on French designer Andrée Putman by Stéphane Gerschel en français, so the going is rather slow.  On second thought maybe I need a glass of burgundy or Cabernet Franc.  No small, polite glasses for me -- serve it up in a great big balloon glass!

I speak french better after a bit of wine, so it only makes sense that my reading comprehension would improve avec un verre de vin, n'est ce pas?
