Habitus Loves… Reading

If you’re having some cooler-than-normal weather, or if the sun is flooding through your lounge room, then chances are you’re ready to curl up with a good book. So this week, we thought we’d take a look at 8 of our favourite designs for reading… (with the obvious omission of Habitus magazine, which we know you already read!)

Bookmark II

title 

 


Designed by:
Ankul Assavaviboonpan

Why we love it: This flexible rubber bookmark wraps around a whole section of your book. Just move the indicator to mark the exact line you’re up to.

Where you can get it:

Propaganda

 

Up5

Designed by: Gaetano Pesce

Why we love it: This great chair from B&B Italia is perfect for squishing in with your feet up to read a good book. We love the cat-like playfulness of the ball and string (putting aside its political commentary on the role of women).

Where you can get it:

Space Furniture

AJ Floor Lamp

title 

 

Designed by: Louis Poulsen

Why we love it: This adjustable floor lamp, in spun steel and die cast zinc, is perfect for illuminating your favourite book or magazine as you read on into the evening.

Where you can get it:

Cult.

Bedside Abode

title 

 

Designed by: Chrisjob

Why we love it: Okay, so you can’t actually buy this one, but there are some great instructions on DIY for the tool-savvy Design Hunter. We just couldn’t go past it though. The solid timber block lets you change the roof as often as you change your book.

Branch Bookshelf

title 

 


Designed by:
Olivier Dollé

Why we love it: This beautiful design is a real statement for the design-savvy booklover. Available in walnut and oak finishes, its tree-like structure ‘grow’ out of the well and displays your books like autumn leaves, resting in its limbs.

Husky Throw

 

Design by: MissoniHome

Why we love it: This is the perfect throw for curling up with a big cup of tea and getting lost in your favourite novel. A throw feels like less of a commitment than a whole blanket, so you can get a few chapters in before you nod off!

Where you can get it:

Top3

Drift Reading Glasses

title 


Design by: Drift Eyewear

Why we love it: These glasses use thin wood for the arms of the glasses. Reading things made of trees with help from things made of trees somehow just feels right.

title 

 


Design by:
Jonas Wagell

Why we love it: This oversized tea set has a cartoonish quality and is perfect for getting through a few cups as you delve other worlds with a great work of fiction.
