Ingredients for a reading corner:
- Cozy chair
- Nearby lamp
- Place to set a cup of tea or coffee
A favorite reading corner in our house is on the loveseat in the kitchen. (
This chair is an appealing spot, but the lamp is not quite bright enough for me, especially in the evening. I once put a floor lamp beside it which improved the situation greatly, but, alas, I had robbed the lamp from the space by my husband's recliner, which meant that he could not see to read the newspaper, and so I returned it. (It was only fair, since Ron usually moves from my favorite spot on the loveseat when I stare him down.)
We also have reading chairs in each of the bedrooms.
You just can't have too many reading corners!
