Have you seen furniture that looks like books? There are all kinds. Some are wood, some are resin and all are really fun and functional furniture

The Furniture for Bibliophiles from Design Toscano is made to look like worn leather bound books with faux gold gilding. They are wood or MDF (a strong kind of particle board).

Carved wood furniture is hand-painted to look like stacked books.
