The bookcase, which is low to the ground, is great for storing both books and various treasures. A bean bag, big and comfy, is ideal for a still-growing boy. The planetary poster and star lamp are subtle space-themed accents that can easily be swapped out as your little adventurer matures and his interests change.

The oversized chair, gray toned rug, and matching throw blanket create a solid foundation for a place of comfort for both boys and girls to hang out and read. The clear construction of the bookcase makes books appear as if they’re floating on air, and the wheels are great for the tween who is constantly redecorating. Swap out the more feminine accents if your book nook is for a boy.
