Furniture for Bibliophiles

What reader could not use this chair? Available from Glasgow's Timorous Beasties for only, um, £4,360.84. La Bibliochaise is made of wood & leather, water varnished in black and white as standard. (Other colours are available upon request.) La Bibliochaise can hold 5 meters of books.

Or maybe you'd prefer The Bookinist?
How about the Dondola?

Also check out: This Into That, for furniture made of books; the Reading furniture by Remy van Oers; the pyramidal shelf; the Book Nest Sofa; or the Bookseat. Or, try making your own! Check the catalog under the subject heading Furniture making.

"Each of the ten guestroom floors at the Library Hotel in New York City are dedicated to one of the ten major categories of the Dewey Decimal System: Social Sciences, Literature, Languages, History, Math & Science, General Knowledge, Technology, Philosophy, The Arts and Religion." Here's their Writers Den/Bookmarks Lounge:
