Winston feels safe and comfortable in this room. He feels safe because there does not appear to be a telescreen here, which means that he can not be observed by the Thought Police. He feels comfortable because of this room's relics from the past--he feels connected with the old world here. His comfort is emphasized by the fact that he later uses this room for his affair with Julia.
