Office and Reading Corner Inspiration: Modern, Functional Unique Ideas

Office and reading corner are going to be today’s topic. The home office has become the single most important room division these last two years due to the pandemic situation, we had to adapt with what we had, without giving much thought to what we were doing: we just wanted something practical and functional. Now working from home has become a lot more normalised, so we need to have a few things in mind when decorating our home office.

The Divisions

Reading is something that has been with us for years and years, that’s how stories are told, traditions passed. Reading is fundamental: it allows us to escape to different worlds and different realities, live different lives, conquer worlds, explore space, be queens and kings, wizards and witches. When decorating a reading corner, or nook, we need to make sure it is comfortable, clutter-free, functional and practical.

Working from home is one of the hottest trends of the last decade. It is not surprising that designers recommend paying as much attention as possible to such zones’ design: their atmosphere should be conducive to productive work and creativity without any inconvenience and distractions. Finding the perfect balance of comfort, functionality, and aesthetics is the main task when decorating a home office. 

Freestanding bookcases are widely available in a variety of sizes and colours. You can also mount hanging bookshelves onto the wall or buy glass cases, which might be preferable if your collection includes antique books that you want to preserve. Creating a reading nook is a fun way to display your interests while establishing a special space for reading. Recessed, or built-in, bookshelves can provide floor-to-ceiling storage and space savings.

The Modern Style

The design movement began in the 20th Century. Modern Style furnishings and decor celebrate natural materials, neutral or earthy colours, and the elimination of unnecessary detailing. It uses monochromatic colours whilst the Contemporary style has a wide range and variety of colours. The typical characteristics are mainly structural elements (concrete and beams) are often left exposed; emphasis on horizontal and vertical lines with fewer curves; lack of fluff; low, horizontal furnishings with clean lines; a celebration of natural light unadorned windows; natural materials such as unpainted wood, metals, leather and natural fibres; neutral/natural colour palette; reflective surfaces such as steel, chrome or glass and natural woods and wood veneers.

Office and Reading Corner Inspiration: Modern, Functional Unique Ideas

A cosy reading nook was developed for moments of needing to step away from the computer, kick back in a chair, have a coffee, and read while recharging energies. The reading nook is composed of two swivel velvet ESSEX Armchairs, that give the possibility to face the world outside through the window or to be more guarded inside. An aged brass KOI II Side Table with the tabletop in forest green marble and on the opposite side, facing the window, there is a BARAKA Desk to match with the bookcase. An imposing and spacious desk that gives the confidence to face any working day.
