Fabulous Lounge Seating for Your Kid’s Library

So you have an adorably trimmed bookcase or rustic wooden shelves, or ultramodern cubbies... whatever style you opted for, you’re set on storage space. Even better, you’ve managed to cram every part of it with your own childhood favorites, editor’s picks, Caldecott winners, and a whole host of Newberry’s. Okay so there’s not exactly so much storage space left.

But with all the thought you’ve put into building your little one’s library – and no matter how often they ask for their best-loved books night after night – you’ve yet to see them actually sit down and read.

There might be one item you’ve overlooked... a cozy spot to hang out with all those paperbacks. Check out our favorite library loungers and set your kiddo up for a lifetime of reading.

1. Fatboy Junior Bean Bags 2. Ligne Roset Mini Togo Chairs 3. Smarin LIvingstone Pebble Pillows


If You Have the Floor Space...

Fatboy Junior Bean Bags are cute, comfy, and modern – not your average college dorm bean bag here. Totally shape-able, kiddos can sit, lounge, or stretch out. It adjusts perfectly to every body and comes in 20 hip colors from bubblegum pink to petrol blue. The stone-washed collection is made of 100% super-soft cotton. All models are kid-proof and nicely suited for cuddling up with a good read.

Ligne Roset’s Mini Togo Chairs are an ultra luxe affair for little readers. Kid-sized comfort with a grown-up aesthetic, they’ll have your kids sitting pretty in the library. They come in a wide variety of Ligne Roset’s stunning fabrics and make a nice, designer addition to any room.

Smarin’s Livingstone Pebble Pillows are perfect for a rustic or contemporary children’s library. They’re oversized, modular, and poetic – offering comfy support and beautiful eye-candy. The chunky pebbles come in a variety of shapes and sizes, just inviting your little one to jump on in with their favorite book.

4. PUUR The Magic Chair 5. Mini Eames-Inspired Rocker 6. Scott Wilson Purity Rocking Chair


If You’re Looking To Rock...

The Magic Chair by PUUR is a fabulous design concept for a family with multiple kiddos. Just like a Russian nesting doll, it’s actually multiple chairs in one – three of them to be exact and a footstool. Each bentwood rockers fits snugly in the other, diminishing in size with each layer. You can use them individually, or fit them together when you’re hurting for space!

The Mini Eames-Inspired Rocker perfectly balances function and style. It’s proof positive that it’s never too early to introduce beautiful design. The molded fiberglass shell is super tough, extremely durable, and easy to clean. So your little one can snack and read. Plus, it comes in so many ultra-hip shades. A great addition to your reading nook, it will rock your little one through book after book.

The Purity Rocking Chair by Scott Wilson comes in both an individual and a loveseat version – perfect for snuggling up solo with a book or for multiple readers on the same seat. The Purity is elegantly modern, minimalist, and boasts a lovely pop of color.

7. Bolo Suspended Chair 8. Serena & Lily Circular Hanging Rattan Chair 9. Joki Cocoon Chair


If You Prefer to Just Hang...

The Bolo Suspended Chair is retro hip at its finest. A space-age pod, it’ll nestle your little one snuggly and give them a nice quiet place to read. The roomy interior and spherical shape feel both cozy and private – great for truly losing yourself in the thick of a suspenseful plot.

The Circular Hanging Rattan Chair by Serena & Lily will have you swooning. Inspired by 1960’s Scandinavian design, it’s not just useful... it’s absolutely beautiful as well. The circular design is eye-catching and roomy, giving your kids a nice amount of support as they lounge about. Add a bright, vibrant pillow for a contrasting pop of color.

The Cocoon Chair by Joki is an ideal refuge for little ones. The cuddle swing is peaceful and comforting. Its rocking motion helps kids develop balance while they read. The cocoon is made of 100% cotton and comes in an array of bright, beautiful colors.

10. IKEA PS Svinga 11. Anthropologie Melati Hanging Chair 12. Moroso Tropicalia Cocoon

The IKEA PS Svinga Hanging Seat is a nice, affordable option to hang in your reading nook. It’s simple, sturdy, and really cute. Kids can rock gently to and fro mid-air through a nail-biting suspense thriller. And when the excitement gets nearly too much to handle, its rubber springs will absorb the shock.

Anthropologie’s Melati Hanging Chair is absolutely dreamy. No, seriously... it even has would-be dream catchers macraméd into its design! It comes in two different colors: blue or citrus. If your little ones like to break out those longer novels, add in an oversized pillow to keep their bottom comfy. It’s macramé, remember?

Moroso’s Tropicalia Cocoon is colorful and chic with a price tag to match. Actually it’s at such an absurd price tag, it absolutely should not be put in a kid’s room – maybe just in a showroom simply to be admired. But it’s just so drool-worthy, we couldn’t help ourselves. Apologies!

What are some of your must-haves for the kiddo’s reading nook?
