My favorite things

Now that I’ve got the bookshelf of my dreams – imagine a built-in bookcase along one entire wall, running from floor to ceiling, filled with books and a few nick-knacks – I’m on the lookout for a cozy reading chair. And as I look at designs and despair of ever finding anything that will fit into the tiny little spot I have, I leave you with these cool reading chairs.

Because, really, how could you not want this chair on wheels? After all, you never know where in the house you’d like to read. And of course, you have to have at least a couple of books along with you, because you never know what you might want to read!

If space is a constraint, how about this bookshelf-cum-reading bench? It’s functional and oh-so-trendy!

Or this reading chair with a built-in bookcase? Kill two birds with one stone!

And if you have too many books that you don’t know what to do with, why not recycle them into a chair a la artist James Thurman, whose reading chair made out of recycled books was featured in the McMuseum of Anthropological Archaeology’s exhibition of “Ancient 21st Century Art-i-facts.”

And finally, I leave you with the chair that has captured my heart and my fancy. I want, want, WANT this chair…made by artist Kelly Swallow using vintage and designer fabrics as well as grain sack and linens.
