The Athena Scroll Book Table-cum-Stylish Coffee Table

in Furnishings

I always think a room with no books is just not a room I want to spend much time in. Whether it’s an interior space of my own or one I pass through on a fleeting visit, I always like to see books somewhere in the room, whether on bookshelves, tables or even somewhere unusual, like with the scroll book table-cum-coffee table seen in the picture below. A good discussion on one’s favorite books can then ensue and one is likely to find common ground with a fellow admirer of literature and learning.

It is therefore important to have an item of furniture that compliments this type of environment, both practically and aesthetically. As mentioned above, something like the wooden scroll-style book table-cum-coffee table is an ideal furniture piece for such an occasion.

Books, magazines, atlases and dictionaries can all be slotted into place for easy access when needed during an evening of chatting, discussing and drinking. I love a good political discussion and to have various books in place to open up when chatting about 20th Century European or American history is something that’s attractive to me. It’s for this reason the scroll table-cum-coffee table which can hold a variety of books jumped out of the page at me.

Per your posts this week I sense a leaning towards things that have an Asian feel to them. IE, I carry an antique scroll coffee table very similar to the modern one featured in this blog.
Should you be inclined to showcase Asian antiques I just wanted to make myself, and my collection available. You may not be aware of us, but we have been importing, and online, selling Chinese antiques since 2000. Feel free to check us out and should you be inclined to feature our products I would be honored.
