Next Best Thing to Crawling Under a Rock

There is a very stern copyright notice on this site saying that unauthorized use of images is forbidden, so you'll just have to click the link to see what I'm talking about when I tell you that THE CAVE BOOKCASE IS AWESOME:
In urban life, there seems to be a common understanding that people tend to consciously or subconsciously become wary of strangers surrounding them. They are always balancing a certain level of privacy with others. A bookcase CAVE provides a private reading space within its form. As a seat height is just above the floor, CAVE gives a feeling of hiding from others standing around it.
I want. Oh, how I want.

That is so cool! All it needs is a curtain so I can hide in my book cave undisturbed.

Husband reading over my shoulder - we both said "Oh My God!" as the photo loaded.

So fabulous. And they make them kid sized too!

Great find.

Wow, that has got to be the most ingenious book-thing I've ever seen. If you hung a curtain, wouldn't you need a lamp in there?

Sarah said...

I guess I would use a headlamp which I use now to read in bed without waking up baby or husband. Plus, then I am ready for emergency spelunking.

Jeane said...

A headlamp! Does it ever give you a headache? Once someone gave me a little "reading light" that hooked onto the book, but I found it annoying: it put the light at the wrong angle, and didn't attach well to paperbacks. But a headlamp...

This looks so totally cool. And a kid-sized one is a good idea. If my daughter had one and put a curtain up, I think she'd disappear for days.

Bybee said...

I love it, but yeah -- a curtain is definitely needed here.

Leslie Shelor said...

Awesome! It reminds me of the closet under the stairs where I used to hide to read!

Aww, it's like my childhood tendency to sit under tables to read made acceptable for adults! Plus, you know, I don't really fit under the table anymore.

Apparently, it has a reading light already in it! Perfect!
