You know that a home is inhabited by individuals who have a great appreciation and understanding for the written word when books can be found. The ideal would always be the presence of a library but that may not always be feasible.
Some houses do not have the space needed for a library to be housed. That does not mean though that you can no longer come up with a special place in your home which is specifically dedicated for burying your nose in a great book. A reading chair and lamp is a perfect place for where you can put your feet up and get lost in a wonderful piece of fiction.
Below are the best ways that you can pair the coziest reading chair with the coolest lamp.
Floor lamp with the lounge chair and ottoman.
If you want to come up with a very inviting space to read, then you can always opt for a lounge chair with a corresponding ottoman. This look is extremely inviting especially since there is an option for you to kick back. It’s necessary though for you to make sure that there is good lighting in your reading nook and a large floor lamp will do just that. Make sure that the two items match by picking out pieces of furniture which come in the same color palette. For instance, a white lounge chair with black piping would look great against a white floor lamp that has a dark stalk. Set the combo in room that is designed in the same color palette to make sure that the items are pulled together.
Add a pop of color with a bright chair and a vintage lamp.
Are you an eclectic soul? If you are, then pick out a chair with an interesting shape and an even more interesting color. And then set it against a vintage lamp. Doing so will add quirkiness that the artsy side of you will enjoy. This look works well if the room you place it in is decorated in a rather muted way so as the pop of color comes off as welcomed and not over the top. For instance, if you have white bookshelves, pick out a chair that has beautiful wooden arms and legs but styled in a nice shade of orange.
Bean bag with a floor lamp.
If you want to make reading fun for your kid, then make sure that your kid has a nice place to explore the mesmerizing world that is reading. And what could be more fun to a child than a bean bag. An oversized bean bag will allow your kid to toss and turn while flipping through the pages. With neck support not so much of a factor for them as fun is, the bean bag definitely is appeal for a ten-year-old. Make sure though that your child gets enough light and invest in a good floor lamp. Pick out one in a more modern design and which isn’t that large nor fragile so that you don’t have to worry about it breaking when it accidentally gets toppled over.
