Remember this mantle. Well, since it FELL OVER AND BROKE in the middle of the night one evening (along with a really great vase that was atop, mind you) it has been replaced with the little seating area you see here for the time being. It's cutesy, but I don't really use it. The space just looked wrong empty. I really want to get some other coverings for those pillows in the photo (they came as you seem them)--they are really comfy, but I desire a different look.
