Default My 1970s "Ranch" Home has everything including this?

I bought this home in 1995 and it has everything! Bathroom fixtures in both Avocado Green and Harvest Gold! Sunken living room too! But I've never really figured out what this is. I'm thinking it was an indoor planter of some sort that was filled in with cement?

What do you think it is?

It's a bench for people to sit on during parties and family gatherings, so they can eat finger foods and spill wine and beer on your carpet.

I think I agree with the space for plants. My parents have something similar near the front door that is obviously for displaying...and/or collecting miscellaneous items like jackets, purses, keys. But it about the same size as yours, just a little taller so it's not as convenient to use as a bench.

That could have been put there for almost anything. As a long time mason I have put all sorts of weird brick/block/rock things in peoples houses. Usually the ones like that are for seating or displaying a collection of something.

I'd call it a tripping hazard, for those late nite beer cravings in another room and you fail to turn on the lights.
