Oh folks. My obsession with comfort has reached a personal high. I know that a lot of you have been on this (comfy) train for years, and it’s not that I was anti-comfort, but I often saw it as anti-style. And sometimes, fine often, it is. But as I’m designing this house, which includes two small kids and two exhausted parents I just want every room to be as inviting as possible. It’s not a huge house. We can’t have rooms that we don’t use or don’t want to be in. You tend to hang out in the rooms that are the most comfortable so it’s become priority #1 for us. Congruently I need more places to snuggle and read to the kids (they get stories, you get full body = win, win). Elliot’s room had that awesome green rocker in it from her old room and while it looked cool, it wasn’t cuddle-worthy and didn’t fit both of us easily. So I went on the hunt for a big cozy, comfortable chair to manipulate her into being in my arms for hours a day.
Charlie’s room can’t fit a very big chair so in a perfect world I could find one that would fit all three (or four) of us. That is a tall (BIG) order. I found (I test sat in this one from before I got it -which you may have seen on my story), and it’s insanely comfortable, like a feather bed in the form of a chair, that you never want to get out of.
But I wanted of course to give you guys many options as this size or style might not be for everyone. So here is our roundup of big, comfy cuddle chairs and chaise lounges.

There are so many good ones. We just ordered a vintage French chaise lounge from Jayson Home that is arriving on Friday, which is super exciting. Meanwhile Elliot’s mid-century green rocker (which is now in the living room) will be up for sale soon. I love that piece but for this time of my life, I need one that I can snuggle down in and cuddle in for as long as they’ll tolerate.
This chair, actually holds all four of us. Brian and I fit comfortably with the kids either on our laps or snuggled in next to us. It’s HUGE and has made reading time at night so much more enjoyable.
Here are a few quick sources for some of the items in the room: , , , , , . And a big thanks to for the custom Art, and for that cozy . If any of you have any other comfy oversized chairs that we are missing or that you have tried and love let us know below, until then we will all be snuggling in this chair as long as possible.
