are the most familiar,
windows come in a vast range
of shapes and sizes.

Here are a few that I love
for the ambiance and poetic essence they imbue.

While rectangular, this trio of long, lean windows defines the contemporary living room as well as the view. Repeating the large picture windows would have been an obvious solution, but would have had much less impact than the three thin beauties. The frame breaks at the height of the window sill on the left ties them together through theme with variation.
