There has never been a better time to design a corner of your home that’s dedicated to the pursuit of cozy. Whether it’s a reading nook, a scrolling snug, or a daydreaming den, this chill zone should provide a break from the home office, the home gym, and whatever part of your home is Grand Central Station. That doesn’t mean it can’t be as easy on the eyes as it is on your mood. Below you’ll find a selection of chic and cozy lounge chairs to elevate your off-duty oasis (and if you really still want a BarcaLounger, you’ll find one here).
