A ladder and a bookshelf? Be still my heart!
Higher Ground is the bookshelf I always wanted. The sight of someone perched on ladder that rolls along floor-to-ceiling bookshelves stirs intense FOMS (Fear Of Missing Shelf) inside me.
As an answer to that need, my partner and I designed a slice of the dream in the Higher Ground bookshelf. With 'Higher ground' also came the first rustlings of Said the King. In 3 chunky steps, my direction was clear — physically and metaphorically.
Told you it was my dream ladder.
Just tall enough to make the top shelf a stretch, this bookcase features a ladder that pulls out to reveal 3 steps. While closed, ladder sits flush and rungs align seamlessly with lower shelves. Generous handholds and custom sliding brackets make the ladder easy to open and close, while felt under the feet protect your floor.
Use for storage, climbing, and keeping watch.
