There are a number of reasons why bookshelves in the home are not as soaringly high as those found in traditional libraries and quaint bookstores; yet Higher Ground may change that. It boasts a built-in ladder that makes accessing the top shelf incredibly easy. Instead of having to grab a stool or ask a tall friend to grab something from the top, Higher Ground provides a built-in solution.
Designed by Said the King, a Toronto-based design studio founded by Karen King, is made out of reclaimed and sustainably harvested hardwood including Hickory, Oak and Ash. Designed and built in Canada, the ladder pulls out from the existing frame to reveal three sturdy steps and generous handholds.
