How to create a cozy reading corner

I created a cozy little reading corner in our family room and thought I'd show you some of the elements I used.

1. Lighting. I chose to hang a wall sconce that can plug into a wall outlet. I think lighting is so key for making a space feel cozy. I bought mine from Walmart, but it is currently out of stock. If you are using a light that needs to be hardwired, but you don't want to go to the trouble, here is a great trick to use. Here are some similar lights that I love:

2. A comfy chair. My chair is an old yard sale find that I covered with a slipcover that I made years ago, and the pouf is from Marshall's. Here are some affordable chair options that are similar:

3. Cozy pillows and throws. You can never have too many! Mine are both older, so I don't have links for them, but here are some similar ones:
