The most important element in any reading nook is the seating. Take the time to choose the perfect chair. It should be the kind of chair that you just sink into. In other words, it should be so comfortable that you never want to get up. A leather chair is a smart option since this timeless look works with any style.

Next is great lighting. Not only is this important for function but it’s also about creating the right atmosphere. Bright lights are great for reading. But what if you want to ease into your day with an early morning coffee and a soft glow? Choose a lamp with three-way lighting to give you some lighting options depending on your mood.

Of course, a table lamp will need a table. But that’s not the only reason you need a table next to your chair. A reading nook is so much more comfortable when you have a place to put things. You should have a place to set down a book or a drink and a pretty accent table will fit the bill.

Don’t skimp on the cozy elements. Add a throw for those chilly days. Place a beautiful accent pillow in the chair. Add an ottoman if space allows. Layer in anything that would make this space more comfortable for you. The whole point is to create a space where you can relax and recharge.
