Are you as obsessed with books as we are? If you’re anything like us, then you’re always ready to dive into a new book or re-reading a well-worn fave. Once you’ve got a great book, the only thing you really need is a cozy spot to read it in. Thanks to this company, your hunt for the perfect place to unwind while you read, snack or even host a picnic outside (yes, we’re dreaming of spring) might officially be over. We’re totally geeking out over Bookniture, a book that transforms into a rounded stool or table.
Bookniture is portable and easy to open and close, yet still sturdy enough to hold up to 375 pounds. Better yet, it looks awesome on your bookshelf, and none of your friends will be any bit the wiser.
What’s Bookniture’s secret? Its unique honeycomb structure, made from kraft paper, allows the book to accordion out to almost 14 times its original size. Simply unwrap the book, spin it out and place the felt cover on top. Voila! You’ve got the perfect book-themed accessory.
While Bookniture isn’t a miracle worker (it still weighs a pretty heavy three and-a-half pounds), it’s definitely better than a folding chair or grass stains on your jeans. Even better, if you keep it in your home, you can easily fold it up and put it away the moment your guests leave.
If you’re hunting for the perfect gift for the bookworm in your life, an $80 pledge on Kickstarter will get you the basic design, though if you’re willing to spend a little more, you can get some sweet customization with your own color combos or even a leather version.
