I was visiting my friends' house in the Hollywood Hills, and noticed a built-in niche under the stairs in the living room. My friends don't know what the niche is for.

Other suggestions included: a place to hold the mail (not deep enough for mail), film awards (seems too small), candles (fire hazard), glove warmer (not in southern California), milk bottle holder (weird location for that), martini shaker holder (that would be better in the bar), phone (too small), pneumatic tube station (in my dreams).
None of the above guesses seem right. What do you think it is?
