How to Choose the Perfect Reading Chair

We all are fond of reading. We all love to read. Some call it hobby, some habit and for some it is the most favorite pastime. You would agree, books provides us with hours of non stop entertainment or in other words “entertainment at our convenience”. We can start or pause it at the desired time or stage of performance (reading)! From knowledge to escapism, romance to mystery, spiritual to biographies – no matter what your taste is, there is always a book to read.

But a comfortable place to read or a comfortable seat can hold the real key to your reading enjoyment.

Everybody finds very diversified reading places like the topics we chose to read about. A recliner, rocking chair, lounger, bed, office chair or just the comfy sofa are a few favorites of all. Other places like the library, garden or just a sunshine laden window seat – all these offer the perfect corners or ideal nooks for sheer indulgence to the interest of reading books.

 


However it takes time to find the best place suitable and over period of time – this changes! We sometimes do not find the same place or the reading positing also comfortable for long and do like to change it.

The reading place can be anywhere. But most important, you should find the right reading chair or the seat that will offer you the comfort for the long haul as sometime our stories can draw us into them for real long hours. We at Spacio Furniture appreciate your concern and understand very well that – “nothing should detract you from your reading pleasure by giving you stiff joints or a sore back” says Praveen Kanodia.

Here are few things that design inspirationists from Spacio Furniture suggest you should look for in a reading chair:

  • Look for a reading chair that is ideal for your body type, shape or weight as there are some chairs which are built for tall people and some for the broad built and some for the thin.
  • The ergonomics of your reading chair is most vital! It should offer you a very good lumbar support as you would be definitely lounging for more than a hour or two on it with your favorite book.
  • Try to find a reading chair which has a tall back to give your neck a good support.
  • Look for that extra padding on the arms/ handles of the chair as it would give you good support and comfort to your elbow when you are holding the book over a longer period of time.
  • A reading chair with a foot stool or a recliner with a built in foot rest is ideal for home library as it will give rest to your leg, provide support and keep you body more relaxed
  • A rocker (rocking chair) or a swivel chair or a swing is also a good option for those who like a gentle soothing motion while enjoying your favorite book
  • Lastly, a reading chair with good padding & the right kind of cushioning is very important to protect your body from getting numb or cramped.


Some people are very comfortable reading anywhere – on a concrete bench or on the grass, where as some look out for a chair that is just perfect and would add or improve the pleasure derived from reading. “Your reading chair is like a vehicle for your trip inside the world of romance, mystery and knowledge that the book holds” – says Praveen Kanodia.

Finding the perfect reading chair may take time for some, but it is worth when you really find it. Visit and talk to the design and furniture inspirationists today at Spacio Furniture, and let them help you find “your” reading chair which will be treasured and kept by you for years of comfort and enjoyment.

Small Dining Space is BIG

In today’t urban living, most of the modern flats or apartments are designed where the dining area is of a very small size. It becomes quite difficult owing to the lack of space, to furnish the dining room. Essentially, all the dining spaces are located near or next to the kitchen. Thus placing too many pieces of furniture is not desirable as these are high utility areas and moreover, too much furniture would only make the room highly cluttered.

Spacio furniture & design inspirationists understand the home makers position and they share with you some small tips on how to make your “Small Dining Space look Big”! A lot of creativity and intelligence is required to decorate these spaces and it is not a small task. Here they share a few of the most popular ideas with you.

 

The most important this is to understand that how many people are going to dine together always. This ideally would mean that number of people sitting together on the dining daily. A dining table which holds four seats would be an ideal choice. For more than 4 people, a buffet spread should be preferred.

One of the most important things to consider is that given a small space, the surface of the dining table should be made of glass. This would not only make the dining table, but all the dining space to look very attractive. Please do refer to our archives and read more about “Use Glass Elements to give a Luxurious Look“. To give a chic and sophisticated look, dining mats or dining table runners of expensive materials like silk, velvet or stone work can be used on the dining tables during social get together!

A lot of debate is always there if a round of rectangle or round dining table would be ideal shape for a small space. Adds Navin Kanodia – “it all depends on the space available. A rectangle dining table is aways a space saver, but the round dining table makes it easier for people to move about from one place of the dining space to another”. Praveen Kanodia suggests “our expert design consultants on the store floor always take a lot of time to discuss with the customers on the space available and then suggest the shape of the dining table accordingly”.

A small Dining Side board would be very handy if space is available, but should be avoided if it would make the space look cluttered. A dining area which is cluttered will look messy and consequently quiet undesirable.

One should make provision to let the dining room area receive as much natural light as possible. This is because natural light also succeeds in creating an impression of space. One should therefore open the blinds and allow the sunlight to devour the dining area making it look resplendent and beautiful.

Decorating a small dining room area is therefore a task that is not too difficult and can be easily carried out if one keeps the above mentioned tips in mind. Care should be taken to make the dining area look inviting and warm rather than dingy and dark.
