Mastering The Cosy Reading Nook

During Summer the skies are blue, the sun is shining, and everywhere we turn the colours of nature in bloom inspire our senses, making us want to create, to play, to master great design. But despite the occasional heatwave and the smell of sun cream out in the streets, at home, once nightfall comes, we are craving what we have always craved – a cosy corner to call our own.

Here at Kassavello, we truly appreciate the power of quiet time, and of spending said quiet time in beautiful yet deliciously comfortable surroundings. And we love a good story – no matter how it’s told, whether it’s words or pictures, we’re fans of so many narratives… This is why we love a reading nook.
We know it’s not just us that feels this way which is why, below, we have shared the five pieces we believe could make your own reading nook dreams a reality:

Fitting perfectly in both timeless and modern interiors, Mr Jones Armchair is classically influenced, and endlessly chic. Comfortable yet stylish, the chair is handcrafted in Portugal and provides the perfect single occupancy seating area for any avid reader.

Every good reading session needs a comforting hot drink. And where better to rest your choice than on our meticulously designed Tambor coffee table? Bespoke and handcrafted, this table is an elegant addition to your reading nook décor.
Sink your toes into the majestic ‘Vase’ rug, a bold design without limits. 100% handmade, this piece adds a transformative air to your cosy space.


Glamourous and sleek, the opulent Decadence Bookcase is the perfect way to store your favourite stories. Sit your books alongside fresh flowers and – on the top shelf – a favourite scented candle for a truly calming ambience.

Every reading nook worth the characters it houses has the benefit of good lighting. The Sinatra Floor Lamp, a sculptural and versatile creation, provides just that… And we love to curl up under it at the end of a long week, ready to lose ourselves in other worlds.

To view more reading nook worthy pieces by wonderful Portuguese designers, take a look through our website. And if you’d like to share your own favourites, please do let us know on Instagram @kassavello – we’d love to hear from you.
