Small Space Library


I love books — all kinds of books. In a small home, books can become quite impractical. I have always dreamed of having a real library.

In lieu of a real full-sized library the Lese+Lebe by Niles Holger Moormann is a great alternative. Described by Moormann as a locomotive dining car or a beach chair, the Lese+Lebe is just a great place to sit and read. It is a combination bookshelf and comfortable seat with pullout foot rests. It is an ingenious design with true multifunction. When seated, there are shelves that fold down to form a table area that is perfect for a tea and snack while reading. Any piece of furniture that packs this much storage space and looks this good is a winner in my book.
