Built-In Cabinet/Bookshelf Design Dilemma

In the picture below you can see the fireplace framing to the left, the window to the right, and another window to a covered porch on the wall to the far right. The issue is that I would like to have built-ins to the left of the fireplace directly below the window to the right. But what to do now with that window on the right wall?

Stop the built-ins 6-12" from the right wall?

Angle the built-ins at about 12" and have them connect to that wall?

Have the built-in height "drop off" and then run much lower to the ground about half way over?

I am really pulling my hair out on this one. Let me know if you have any ideas. Any picture examples would be GREATLY appreciated!
