Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Book (or magazine) stool — by Arik Levy:


(1) it's on sale at indigo bookstores in canada for 75% off right now
(2) it thought the same thing, "i could just get straps", but i know i never will
(3) i don't even think it's that nice-looking, but i have too many books & magazines, and not enough seating or storage so it's worth a try for $10!

Here's what they'll think of next: "Bookseat: the Book Storage Chair for Small Libraries"

I thought that was an amusing concept - a joke - until I saw a price. I'll still send the url to my friend who is hip-deep in too-many-books to fit on his shelves, but I think he'll laugh too.

I mean, you can get a couple of nice strong straps at the local hardware store. I haven't priced them, but I don't think they'll run $37.00 a pair.

Or is it "art" and I'm just being a Philistine?

Nifty. What will they think of next?
