Curling Up With a Bookshelf


The New York Times Profiles Sakura Adachi's "Cave," which allows readers to curl up in a form-fitting seat, surrounded by their beloved books. The Cave features a blob-shaped, human-size recess at its base. Sitting in this upholstered niche is supposed to make a reader feel secluded; akin to being lost among a college libraries dusty stacks but still remain visible to passers-by. It Ain't Cheap.


I saw some kids furniture kind of like that at ALA. It's a neat idea with the seating right there and incorporated into the stacks. But, that product is a bit too expensive.
