Chair Styles That Make Perfect Reading Chairs

Looking for a chair for that reading nook you’ve wanted to put together? Let’s take a look at some styles that make the perfect reading chairs.

Sophisticated Library

If you’d like to create a reading nook that evokes images of vintage libraries with rows of dark bookshelves and world maps on the wall, a chair like the Ginger Tiltback from Vanguard is the one you’re looking for. This reddish-brown leather beauty looks both traditional and cozy and will work perfectly with a bronze floor lamp and a cute little side table. For a more Victorian look to your library, this armchair would be perfect.

Country Farmhouse

For something a little brighter, this Gwynn Chair paired with some yellow and cream pillows and a softly patterned area rug would create the perfect country farmhouse reading corner. Some weathered wood shelves and a vintage lamp could complete the look. Soft blues and greys go great with a rustic farmhouse theme, so look for soft, comfy chairs in these hues.

Modern and Sleek

If the sleek modern look is more your style, a chair with sharp, clean lines can help create your perfect reading area. The Stanton Chair from American Bungalow takes this look and puts a funky spin on it with velour upholstery. Pair this with some dark grey or black bookcases, and you’ll have the perfect spot to relax and read to your hearts content.

Classic and Traditional

When it comes to finding the right reading chair, why not stick to the classics? A soft and straightforward armchair with a corduroy upholstery in a pale neutral color would blend in well in any room, and just oozes comfort and relaxation. For a spin on this look, try a bold color like maroon or yellow.
