The Staple Reading Chair

A reading nook isn't a reading nook without a cozy corner and a comfy chair. While your favorite books will never change, choose a neutral furniture piece you can easily accessorize as your décor style develops over time.

Shelves on Shelves

Your own personal library can never have too many bookshelves, right? For a smaller area, tuck a few under a window sill (bonus: use them as a window seat). If you're working with a larger room and an impressive book collection, cover a wall with a few matching bookcases.

Functional Lighting

Even if you're cozying up near a window for some natural lighting, a floor lamp is a must-have for your reading nook. Because sometimes you just can't set down that book until the late hours of the night.

Table Space

If you don't have a lot of room, a side table sans the storage (like the one shown above) is optional. Still, a little extra storage never hurts if you have the space. A stylish side table like this would fit well into a larger library.

A Little Extra Storage

Even when they're stored on shelves, your books deserve to always be on display. When it comes to other items like your blankets, keep them concealed in a stylish storage ottoman when they're not in use.
