I must be crazy.
The local paper featured a few nice looking interior design items, and as the addict I am, I looked. The desk (Ikea) was nice enough, but I don’t need a new desk.
So I looked at the intriguing pile of books instead. Of course I did. Because I need more books to fill my home with. Especially fake ones. That’s what I’d found; a stool-cum-occasional table made to look like a pile of books. Apparently it’s cardboard. Apparently it will take 200 kg, so would even tolerate me…
I quickly came to the conclusion that if I want to sit on a pile of books, though, that I have plenty of the real thing, and I can simply pile them attractively somewhere and sit down. Or maybe not. I suppose they could potentially collapse. Glue them together? But then you can neither read them nor move them afterwards.
The fake book stool comes from a company where it seems you can have almost any fake cardboard stool you like. I am quite taken with the well travelled trunk, too. And unlike the real deal it will take apart after sitting, so not as crazy as I first thought.
