Let’s face it- we’re permanently attached to our electronic devices. With e-mail and social media at our fingertips 24/7, it’s up to us to recharge by making time for a digital detox. But, what does that mean exactly?


While the recommended stay in the land of digital detox is 24-72 hours, this can be challenging with our daily demands. One great way to take a break inside your own home is to set up a cozy reading nook, complete with zero devices. That’s right: no charging your phone, checking your e-mail, or watching YouTube tutorials here; this is your place of zen.

We have a bunch of new products at American Freight, just added to our website, including some cozy chairs perfect for your nook. Here are a few ideas to get you started:


The Dinah Red Accent Chair

The Dinah boasts a refreshing combination of contemporary design with a touch of vintage flare. Sophisticated clean lines, and accented with espresso colored wooden legs, this a fresh way to sit in style. Available in a variety of beautiful colors, the Dinah is all about versatility. Get cozy in The Dinah with a good book or notepad.

Erica Heirloom Blue Accent Chair

The Erica is completely new! It’s sleek, rich blue color is a timeless match for most any decor. Accented up and down with a double nail head outline along the high back and arms of the Erica, you’ll look forward to relaxing here day in and day out.
