Bohemian Reading Nooks

A reading nook is simply a place where you can focus on reading. You can find these areas in bedrooms, in living rooms, or separated from the main rooms of the house.

They could be near the staircase landing, in an empty corner of the home, or along the hallway. You can put a reading nook anywhere there is space for a cozy chair, table, and source of lighting!

Extra Wide Accent Chair

I love extra wide accents chairs and I am seeing them more and more often. These chairs are wider than normal, but not so wide that they would be two-seater settees. I think they’re great for curling up with your feel on the chair cushion and just having a bit of extra room to cozy up.

Chaise Lounges

Heavenly chaise lounges are always a great idea for a reading nook. Who doesn’t want to put their feet up and relax while reading? Having twin chaise lounge chairs is even better!
