First, I’ll need many of these Gothic Bookcases (Ackermann’s Repository, 1827) lining the room to hold my books. The glass doors will help keep dust at bay...but I’ll cheat and put UV-filtering glass in to further protect my treasures (which will, of course, include a complete collection of first editions of all of Georgette Heyer’s books):
To reach the top shelves, a few Metamorphic Library Chairs might be handy: the seat and top hinge over forward, creating a handy ladder to scurry up while searching for the right book (July 1811):
I’ll definitely need a comfy place to sit and read...like maybe in this Gothic Sofa (December 1825):
Reading isn’t the only thing I’ll do in my fantasy library...I’ll be writing, of course! Maybe at one of these Cabinet Globe Writing Tables--how much fun are these?! (February 1810):
Or at this slightly more conventional writing table (January 1810):
Though this Secretaire Bookcase (September 1822) is also pretty awesome, as well as having room to store more books:
How about you? Do you have a room of your own you like to dream about? What would you furnish it with?
