The metamorphic chair library steps has to be one of the most ingeneous products known to man - a chair that converts into a set of library steps. These were originally designed for the English aristocracy and European nobility as a great space saving device for their owners who had libraries. They are also extremely practical - and fun - for contemporary living.

We have various styles - Regency, Victorian - and woods to suit your interiors scheme. The chairs are very comfortable to sit in with arms and are solid and sturdy in their chair configuration. They are very easy to open out and they fold out to form the library steps. Some of our models even have leather on the tops of the library steps.
