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.
Now it’s your turn – which one of these is your favorite?
First off— I am entirely jealous of your bookshelf!!!! Second– a cozy chair is key- but these are some fun options!!
I love that last chair! The other’s are so imaginative and fun – but the last one is calling out to me 🙂
I know my son would want the chair with build in bookcase! I am in love with the last wing chair. Love everything about it 🙂
Then you should check out her site Bibi, she does some gorgeous wing chairs. It was so difficult to choose just one to feature!
Ever since seeing Beauty & The Beast a library has always been my dream. Your bookcase sounds perfect! Post pictures 🙂 Those chairs aren’t quite my style, but the last one is & I’d love it!
I will post pictures soon, though right now it’s in a bit of a mess with all the kitty medicines lying on it!
I saw that first chair in India Today Home edition and I fell in love, that is, until I saw the rest of the chairs you featured 😀
They’re pretty cool…that last chair though is my absolute favorite!!
