Cool Idea: A Bookshelf and a Bench

This Fishbol Bookseat Bench (no price available) is a great solution for small-space living. While the product may still be in the concept stage, I think it would be a fun idea for all of those studio dwellers who are looking for cool, stylish ways to integrate furniture, accessories, and beloved books.

What do you think? Are you a fan, or does this bench have a little too much going on?

It looks toooo cluttered. I can make a place cluttered by myself for much cheaper haha, I'm such a packrat.

I would like it if the shelves were on the top only.

Pragmatic, but very untidy -- and pickled in "ewwwww." I doubt they'll be able to liberate this design from its severity of fug.

No thanks. I like innovation and functionality, but I also like clean lines and contemporary design. This doesn't really satisfy those criteria. To be honest, it's ugly :(

That looks wrong.

I think it looks incredibly messy with the books they have in there now... they are all bigger than the shelves. It's a good idea if the stuff was kept to a minimum.
