As any book lover can attest, reading isn’t just a hobby or a weekend pastime — it’s an essential form of self-care (or as we call it, shelf care). Books can be an escape somewhere exotic or create the warm-fuzzy feels you’d get from a snuggle session with a luxurious blanket (like this one)! Yet, besides that very crowded shelf, bookcase, or nightstand, our favorite books have rarely been given the same space in our homes. 

Enter: The Reading Room, a great space for great books. In other words, a shelf care sanctuary that we dreamed up with help from our book loving friends at Reese’s Book Club. For the uninitiated, Reese’s Book Club is where bibliophile Reese Witherspoon shares the joy of reading through a monthly book pick, lively community discussions and events, and The Readership, a charitable commitment to supporting literacy. 

With the Reading Room we’re helping Reese take her vision one step further by giving book lovers everywhere the inspiration and tools to create a bright spot in their homes for reading. Think: expert curated shopping lists, Reese’s Book Club’s favorite design picks, and plenty of shelf care tips to help you discover the joy of reading.

As Havenly CEO and co-founder, Lee Mayer, puts it: “I’m such an avid reader, and love spending time cozying up with a good book.  Diving into a great piece of fiction and really getting lost in its pages – there’s nothing more comforting, and for me, is such a lovely and nourishing form of self-care…

We’re so excited to partner with Reese’s Book Club, and can’t wait to help book lovers everywhere take a little more time for themselves and create their special Reading Room at home.

Not sure where to begin? 

The story of your Reading Room starts with you and your inner biblio-style— from boho chic to modern luxe and more. In true Havenly fashion, we’ve curated an assortment of furniture and decor bestsellers to match your tastes and transform your space, from the comfiest chairs to candles and of course, layers upon layers of coziness that beckon you to linger for “just one more chapter.” 

Luxe Reading Room

Best of all, a portion of Reese’s Book Club profits from our partnership will be donated to The Readership, a branch of Reese’s Book Club that increases access to books through Reading Room installations in underserved communities. 

So go ahead and pour yourself a cup of coffee (or glass of wine if that’s your thing), get settled (cozy throws welcomed here), and let’s start designing your dream Reading Room

Here’s to all the happy…Reading Room beginnings.
