I’d recommend a cozy lounge chair or a built-in daybed for your nook area. The daybed is really great because you have the option of both sitting comfortably or putting your feet up and relaxing with a cozy book (or kindle!).

This cozy lounge chair is great because it helps improve your health. It’s supposed to help with blood circulation, alleviate pressure on your body and promote sleep.
I think something bright would making your space amazing. I really like this blue sofa to match your yellow rug. It will make your space stand-out and inviting. Add a little more decor, like a wall art and flowers, to make it complete. I’d never leave that space!
I would like to suggest you this kind of reading furniture for you to makes comfortable while reading.
You definitely need a foot rest stool. :D
