Bibliochaise by Nobody&co
I was just thinking how perfect this would be for my humble little apartment when I read the designer’s quote:
“Twelve years ago we lived in a tiny flat, full of books but with nowhere to sit. Problems are always the best inspirations.That same year we drew the first Bibliochaise: a cube in which to sit, with slots all around to put books in. Geometry is magic. Each time you draw a cube or a square, something wonderful can happen.”
Perfect summary. Apparently the chair can hold 300 books and (even more win) comes in a range of different colors. You can visit it’s home right here.
I immediately jumped on this DIY because this is exactly what I have done at home! I used to have a ‘proper’ tv unit. I couldn’t afford anything very expensive and ended up with a very dodgy unit that rocked if you touched it. For something I was putting one of the most expensive things I owned on to be so shoddy…not very smart. I had an old dresser that I didn’t know what to do with so with a clever Dad and some tools we were able to convert it to a unit. And when you think about it, it makes sense. Big drawers for DVDs, CDs and - if you still use them - videos! With a hole drilled in the back of the unit big enough for your cord to poke through you can fit in your units. And the biggest plus - the old units were built super sturdy so you know it’s not going to rock over and take your tv and everything else with it!
The theory is that while following a zig-zag trail between displays of minimalist Swedish furniture, a disorientated Ikea customer feels compelled to pick up a few extra impulse purchases.
