How to Create the Perfect Reading Nook with a Comfy Armchair

November 7, 2023   By Ecosa Dream Writers

Dreaming of a personal home library and reading nook where you can sink into a comfy armchair and immerse yourself in a good book? Us too! 

Creating the perfect reading nook doesn’t need to be an interior design challenge – all you need is a comfy chair and a few smart decor ideas, and you’re well on your way to crafting that dreamy space. Here’s how.

Choosing the Perfect Comfy Chair

The foundation of any reading nook is a comfortable chair. Whether it’s a single armchair or even a bean bag, the perfect reading chair is the one that invites you in and says, “Stay awhile.”

We love an armchair that folds out into a sofa bed for the ultimate afternoon of reading relaxation. That’s why all of Ecosa’s new Voyage range single armchairs fold out into a sofa bed too!

Find the Corner with the Most Natural Light

Look for a spot in your living room with good natural light. If your living room doesn’t have a lot of natural light, don’t worry! A well-placed floor lamp or sconces will bring in good lighting, making sour eyes don’t strain while reading your favourite books. 

Include a Side Table

A side table is a must when it comes to creating the perfect space to spend the day reading. It’s the ideal spot to place your cup of coffee in the morning or a soothing cup of tea in the evening. Plus, it’s always handy to have a spot to rest your book when you need to stretch or refill your drink.

Add Some Book Storage

While a bookshelf may be traditional, consider DIY built-in solutions or trendy book nook designs for added style. Whether you’re a fan of IKEA’s simplistic designs or prefer custom-crafted pieces, ensuring you have a place for your favourite books is key.

Set the Mood with Textiles

Add soft textiles to make your space feel even cosier. Think throw pillows, a throw blanket, or even a pouf to prop up your feet. These touches not only add comfort but also allow you to play with design trends and give your reading corner a personal touch.

Personalise Your Space

Bring in a bit of yourself to your reading nook. Perhaps some wall art that speaks to you or a unique piece of home decor. Magazines, journals, and other reading materials are also a great addition to your reading nook.

Comfy Armchair FAQs

What are Ecosa’s armchairs made from?

Ecosa armchairs are primarily constructed using 80% recycled polyfill padding complemented by 20% polyfill. This combination ensures the chairs are not only environmentally friendly but also plush and soft to the touch. Plus, with their hypoallergenic properties, they’re a great choice for those who have sensitivities or allergies.

Can I turn an Ecosa armchair into a bed?

Yes! All of Ecosa’s armchairs can be transformed into a single bed in less than two minutes. If you ever have an unexpected guest or just fancy a change from your usual bed, you can easily transform the armchair into a single bed. It’s both convenient and space-saving.

Can I try the Ecosa armchair before committing?

Absolutely. We understand that buying furniture is a commitment, especially when it comes to comfort. That’s why they offer a generous 100-night trial for our armchairs, just like our mattresstrial. This means you can take your time to decide if the armchair is the right fit for you.
