In the busy lives we are all living I think we owe ourselves a great place to read and relax. I’ve always made a nice reading corner for my kids at an early age to cultivate the love of reading! The first one I did, I took a big mattress folded it up in a beautiful orange sari and a lot of cushions in order to create a Thousand and 1 Night atmosphere! But sometimes you just need to take what you have and it is true sitting by a window reading is a great place! It brings you the natural light and sunshine to warm up your body. I think a success to a great reading corner is when you get the feeling creeping into something (the reminisants feelings from our cave period perhaps!) This installed cube in the middle of a space is a great walk in for a quiet and relaxing time. As, in our last house we lived in, we were fludded several times where I had my books, we are rebuilding our library with new books so our collection is far from this but if you do have a big collection of books this is a great way to expose them. Hey, floating on top of your books is not bad either. Did I say back to cave times, the Japanese Designer Sakura Adachi couldn’t have done it more explicit than this. It also makes a perfect room divider. Is distributed by the Italian furniture company Campeggi The Latvian Designer Stanislav Katz did his version of a cosy corner to read in. I really like the charcoal grey with the pink great combination. Places that we don’t know what to do with them can turn out to be perfect reading corners. This is a brilliant idea, being surrounded by all those beautiful words written……..
