With the U.K winter still blustering away outside the window, there’s seldom better whether to find a cosy spot to catch up on a good book. It doesn’t matter whether you’re following Arthur Conan Doyle’s “Sherlock Holmes”, Germaine Greer’s “The Whole Woman” or the latest edition of The Guardian – a great reading nook can be a godsend!
Although we’re contemporary furniture experts, we do all enjoy the odd evening with the latest Chuck Palahniuk. Here are a few tips to help you create the perfect reading nook.
Adequate light isn’t just about making the pretty words clear. Both too much and not enough light can cause eye strain and headaches, so opt for several different light sources if possible. Our range of modern table lamps is ideal for providing localised light. Background light from something like wall-mounted contemporary lighting provides an ambient glow.
It’s an elementary consideration, but an important one nonetheless. A comfy chair that supports your back and arms is a must! We love the “Bubble chair and stand inspired by Eero Aarnio” and “Eames inspired lounge chair and ottoman”
The perfect reading nook doesn’t include having to stretch to the floor every time you want your glass of red. Great pieces like the “Eileen Grey inspired coffee table” mean you can keep your wine, the phone and maybe even that sneaky bar of leftover Christmas chocolate well within arm’s reach.
