Read on for 15 reading chairs that combine style and function.
15 Stylish Reading Chairs To Inspire Your Reading Nook
The First Step To A Cozy Space
Reading nooks are one of my favorite parts of any home. They’re such cozy and personal spaces that really let me unwind and get away from the hustle and bustle of my day. For the same reasons, I love decorating and designing them as well! You really have free reign over the design, furniture, and decor that you bring in. But before you add anything else to your reading nook, you need the perfect reading chairs. Ideal reading chairs for your nook are cozy (of course!) but eye-catching as well. They’re a focal point of your reading nook, so it’s basically setting the stage for the look and feel of this personal space. Keep scrolling to see some of my favorites.
1. Modern Wood Reading Chairs
Having a modern design doesn’t mean you can’t bring in cozy elements. If anything, a warm wood chair like this one can be a much-needed homey addition to a super stylish home!
2. Country Chic Reading Chairs
I can definitely imagine myself lounging around and relaxing in a reading nook like this one! The oversized chair and country chic design will work in any home.
3. Hanging Reading Chairs
Now this is an eye-catching chair! If you love hammocks or have a small space to work with, a hanging chair is your best bet. It’s also great for boho chic homes.
4. Pastel Blue Reading Chairs
Personally, this reading nook is my favorite. It’s equal parts chic with the gold accents and pastel blue chair, but the chair’s traditional design makes it feel just like home.
5. Leather Reading Chairs
A leather chair will really make a bold statement if you have a boho, eclectic, or retro-themed home. And there’s something really homey about slightly lived-in leather—it looks like a family heirloom of sorts.
6. Wicker Reading Chairs
For a farmhouse-inspired reading nook, try a wicker chair! Then just style it up with more current elements like a printed throw pillow and a boho blanket.
7. Grey Reading Chairs
If you constantly remodel and can’t decide on a single style, go for chairs that are neutral. This plush, oversized grey chair is a versatile pick that will match your always-changing personality.
8. Retro Reading Chairs
Black and wood is a no-fail cozy combination for a reading chair that’s perfect for fall, and all year ’round. You can add some personality to it with a printed pillow.
9. Hot Pink Reading Chairs
If you really want to stand out with your reading chair, loud colors like hot pink are a youthful choice. Keep the rest of your decor subdued in neutral colors to make this chair really pop.
10. Modern Rocking Chairs
Combine the coziness of a rocking chair with the stylish modern design and you have the perfect chair for your reading nook. I love the mint green color as well! It’s so fresh.
11. Rose Quartz Reading Chairs
Rose quartz may be this year’s Pantone color, but I don’t see this trend going away anytime soon! It’s such a versatile color that’s just as cozy as it is stylish. A rose quartz chair is a perfect addition to a feminine reading nook.
12. Love Seats
Sometimes you want to unwind with some company as well—your significant other, or maybe even your kids. A love seat for 2 will be a stylish and unique option for your reading nook.
13. Cozy Eclectic Reading Chairs
The reading chair you pick should really reflect your personality and style, so take chances! This eclectic reading chair isn’t your usual choice but it still looks stylish and cozy, right?
14. Bright Yellow Reading Chairs
If hot pink is too girly for you, yellow is a fun and bright gender-neutral choice that will still give you the same loud pop of color. I love the wooden legs on this chair because they make it an even cozier choice!
15. Winged Reading Chairs
There’s a reason why wing chairs are classics—they’re comfy and practical, with just the right amount of style. You’ll be lounging around in a cozy chair like this for years to come.
