2. Bolster:  a cylindrical-shaped pillow.⁣

3. Hygge (pronounced ‘hoo-guh’):  a word that describes a feeling of coziness and a sense of contentment or well-being.⁣

4. Etagere:  a freestanding or hanging set of open shelves designed for decorative objects.⁣

5. Settee:  an upholstered piece of furniture long enough to seat two people.⁣

6. Wainscoting:  Interior wall paneling that covers the lower part of a wall.⁣

7. Kelvin:  the unit of measurement that relates to the color of a light source. The higher the number, the closer the shade is to sunlight.⁣
