Biblioteca Bookrack by Umbra

So clever, and definitely a piece that people will ask about…it would be interesting to see if others are inspired to find their own coffee tables and turn them into book racks.

Nicole Ottoman

Large ottomans for coffee tables are one of the better ideas for a living room. It’s much more comfortable to put your feet up on something soft than on wood or glass, of course, but it also softens up the whole feel of the room, eliminating those hard corners that our shins inevitably find one way or another. Large ottomans like this can also double as extra seating for large gatherings as well.
