Старинная мебель для библиотек и кабинетов.Часть 2.

Библиотеки и кабинеты. Стулья, кресла, лесенки и трансформеры.

В старинной кабинетной и библиотечной мебели очень много многофункциональных трансформирующихся предметов.
Стулья превращаются в лестницы, ступеньки совмещают в себе комод или клозет.

Большие вместительные библиотеки с очень высокими потолками и антресолями были далеко не у всех.
Библиотеки часто совмещались с кабинетом хозяина, служили ему местом для любимых занятий и хобби.
Неудивительно, что мебель для библиотек делали с особым вниманием к комфорту и удобству, с любовью и выдумкой.

Библиотеки часто служили курительными комнатами,или были совмещены с кабинетом, поэтому там предпочитали ставить кожаную мебель:

Library chair with folding steps, 1760-1780
Franklin was well known for inventing and adapting things to meet unmet needs. He altered the design of a conventional open armchair or lolling chair by fitting it with a set of short steps and using it as a library ladder.

It came to be called the President's Chair when Franklin chose to sit in it while he presided over meetings of the American Philosophical Society that were held in his library at home.

The armchair 'metamorphed' into a set of steps

В библиотеке можно провести много времени, от книги иногда невозможно оторваться.
Ходить куда-то- далеко, поэтому клозет делали тут же, в библиотеке.

Горшок маскировали и прятали в стулья, комоды и даже ступеньки:
