A Wish List — Cool Furniture for the New Library!

Soon, we will be moving into our new “green” building (green in the environmental sense — it will be faced with brick). I have been asked to plan shelving and furniture for the new Children’s room, so I have been thinking, searching — and discovering some wonderful things! Some of my favorite items probably won’t be possible for us — partly because I cannot find United States distributors for them. But I hope we may eventually have something like these “livingstones” in the Children’s room.

And how about these tangram shelves for housing games, or a display of the newest graphic novels, in the teen area?

Aren’t these amazingly creative and cool?

And the company provides a whole slew of possible designs at this link. (PDF file)

It’s wonderful what you can find online, isn’t it?
