I have to say, I find it strange that so many pieces of furniture similar to the Bookshelf chair have popped up in the last little while. The reason I find the Bookshelf chair and those like it strange is because of the growing popularity of e-readers and tablets.
The Bookshelf chair shows that books are still very much prevalent in modern society and that designers do not see them diminishing any time soon. Although people may be living in an era of rapid technological advancements, they are also a nostalgic generation that appreciates the past.
Created by Beijing-based designer Wenshuai Liu, the Bookshelf chair is simple enough to complement any living interior.
