1. Bookshelf Chair
Despite the fact that reading books might not be as popular a hobby as it used to be, it's still something that a lot of people enjoy doing in their spare time. It's relaxing, it helps you broaden your horizons and learn new things about the world, and it's a wonderful form of escapism. And it's something that you can do no matter what your budget looks like – after all, there are plenty of thrift stores where you can buy used books, or you can just borrow them from friends. All of these reasons should probably be enough to convince anyone that reading is one of the most rewarding hobbies you could pick up, but the real kicker is that it's also an incredibly mobile one to have. You can do it anywhere and everywhere: on the train, in bed, by a lake – it's completely up to you! Now that we've covered many of the positive attributes of this pastime, we'd be remiss not to mention the one downside that comes with being a bookworm: not enough space! After a while, most people just seem to run out of space and shelves to put their books and the tragic result of this is often having to get rid of them. If you find yourself in this predicament, now's the time to pay attention! We're going to show you how to build an armchair that also contains a literal bookshelf. Iconic! Not only is this armchair incredibly useful, it's also stunning to look at. Don't miss out on this total game-changer!
