Why We’re Geeked About It
O.M.G! Every book lover has that one special spot in their house that takes book reading to a whole new level. It’s that well-worn couch in the television room with the slight dip in the seat cushion that you settle into with your favorite blanket and book; or that one semi-comfy chair in the back of the library tucked away that gives you just enough privacy to get lost in the latest David Baldacci release. We all have that one place that helps us get lost in whatever book we’re enjoying at the moment.
As a result, we’re always looking for new reading spots and this just might be one of them. When we discovered this bistro table and chair set our inner book nerd was triggered! Jaws dropped, eyes bulged, saliva ran down our chin.
This is one of those table and chair sets guests cannot sit on when they come visit. They can look, admire, ooo and ahh, but not touch or sit. Yep, that’s selfish. Yep, we’re fine with it.
And There’s More!
What? You’re not excited? Your bibliophile nerve endings not tingling yet? Then, let’s take it up a notch…
Has hidden compartments for storing your favorite books!
Slides together and becomes a bookshelf!
We’ll pause here to give you a moment…
Not stopping there….a hand-painted, lacquer-finished top of faux burled wood with ebony trim tops the library table with two tone-on-tone cushioned barrel chairs on casters. 41″Wx26″Dx30″H when closed and weighs 148 lbs.
- Secret compartments under both seats by lifting up seat cushion.
- Secret compartment in table base has one shelf measuring 22″Wx4½”Dx23″H.
- MDF material – The feet and some of the internal structure is solid wood. The rest is MDF, which is an engineered wood product made by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibres.
You gotta be geekin’ out right now!
