The Ikea Ektorp Armchair is a dead ringer for the Pottery Barn version and at $250 it was a much more reasonable pursuit. It's Big, it's comfy and it's slipcovered so it's totally washable.
You can't have a big comfy reading chair without an ottoman, so we bought the matching Ikea Bromma Ottoman at $99. It opens up for storage, a blanket and maybe a little pillow.
To open up your cornered windows, hang one curtain on the outside of the frame to make your windows look like one cohesive unit. A pair of ruffled curtains add an extra element of detail that make this little girl's room a perfect reading corner for bedtime stories.
