‘Susan’s Stand’
mahogany, maple
19″ deep x 24″ wide x 44″ high

This bookstand is designed for a very specific purpose: to serve as a standup reading surface either for books or for electronic media. The stand includes design elements from other places in the home, is set for the client’s height and reading style, and also folds away flat to fit in the hall closet. At the very last fitting, both the client and I decided to add the maple diamonds in the center of the legs to delineate the center of the curve, creating a more elegant flair.
