Livio de Marchi

Can you imagine a house made out of books? A house in which even the table, the chairs and the bed seem to have been made of pages to turn and bound covers? You might say that this is a dream turned into reality by Livio De Marchi!

Pimp My Bookcart

First Prize Food for Thought by Student Employees of Columbia University Library.
Author comments: Hot dog carts and used book vendors are a staple of any New York City sidewalk. A team of student work-study employees at Columbia’s Butler Library drew on this urban inspiration to transform a vintage wooden bookcart into Broadway’s hottest book stand. Having wheeled the refurbished bookcart from the quiet library stacks to the bustling corner of Broadway and 113th Street, Columbia undergraduate Evan Roth poses as a book vendor to the amusement of even the most jaded New Yorkers. And then it’s back to the library stacks to serve up fresh books!

Library table

Here's a fabulous, true mission style library table, ala Frank Lloyd Wright! It measures 29x46 with a rectangular top, mission edge, side book storage, angled pedestal mission base with corbels and 21" drawer (a keyboard pullout is an option). Quarter sawn oak only.

Sheet metal, hand-treated and lacquered to give a rust effect. They can be joined together showing a sort of x-ray of a leafless tree.

What better way to showcase your Vonnegut collection alongside your beloved tchotchkies than the SHILF modular shelving system. Steel components in ivory powder-coat combine as you see fit, with no tools or hardware, to make any collection the talk of the town.
