Reading Nook Plans

As Ian's been working from home for over five years now I've tried to help him make his work/personal space a little bit more functional and happy for him. We bought him some bookshelves/cabinets on Marketplace and painted them matte black. It definitely helped with storage and actually decluttered things quite a bit.

Since he reads for a good chunk of time every day, I wanted to create a comfy reading spot for him to sit. I've tried to keep his space more masculine and industrial/midcentury modern since that is really his preference when it comes to design. You can see what the space looks like now here.

Here are a few of my ideas for the space as well as chairs I love. I am a huge fan of the mixed tones here and the pops of color mixed with the books. Looks like a place I would love to work. Design by Busatti Studio
