Here is a curious word from The Vally of Fear in The Greatest Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. I wasn’t exactly sure what it meant, though I knew it had to be a part of a room based on the context. Now that I’ve looked it up, it’s no wonder that is where Holmes chose to sit. It sounds quite cozy, actually.

Inglenook – a space on either side of a large fireplace

Usage: “Finally he lit his pipe, and sitting in the inglenook of the old village inn he talked slowly and at random about his case, rather as one who thinks aloud than as one who makes a considered statement.”
