Long Form Library: Largest Etsy Item Ever?
June 8th, 2011
Ifsodoso’s Long Form Library is kind of amazing. It’s a self-contained library and reading nook, all in one. However, it’s quite large so it won’t fit in many places. The Long Form Library can store up to 400 books or a variety of CDs or other items, encircling its occupant in its center ring. It’s also got built-in accent lighting and reading lights.
Unfortunately, it would be challenging in most homes to find enough place for this gargantuan piece of furniture. That and the $9,500 (USD) price tag make it something best left for people with lots of money and lots of space. It’s sad though, because I would have loved to have something like this in my house. Thankfully, the self-contained library has individual modules that will fit through standard doors.
The Long Form library is supposed to rock gently to and fro, but not supposed to tip over. Still, it might be dangerous for people with pets and kids. It’s also currently a one-off handmade product, so first-come, first-served. Naturally, shipping something like this can be quite problematic, and shipping will add another $500 to the price, making it a cool $10,000 purchase. This would be a good example of a product that could be simply sold as plans on Etsy.
