Ok, time for Semola to go back to his place. The one described by Helesinine.
At present, he is still under a sofa in the middle of my living-room. The sofa has drapes down to the floor so the area beneath it is almost completely dark. Almost touching the sofa is a little set of shelves with two boxes on the lower shelf, the one that is closest to Semola's position. On the sofa there are two cushions. Almost right over the sofa, there is a overhead light. Less than a meter away a hallway that leads to an alcove begins.
Nimue: Your only "miss" (?) was bed instead of sofa.
Royster: By the way you expressed it, I get the impression you perceived Semola as being somewhere passed by quiet often. I think you grasped the atmosphere of the room. The living room is crossed continually as the rest of the house is built around it and itīs the place where all the action goes on. I couldnīt actually "see" him because he was under the sofa but his emplacement was in constant view and very much passed by.
I think you both did brilliantly and completed the picture between you. Nimue was more specific and gave more accurate small details so I guess is the closest.
