When we moved into our new house this spring, we couldn’t wait to get started with decorating our little lady’s room and began as soon as the carpets were down and the paint was dry.
One of the most exciting things about buying a house is getting to put your own stamp on it and I couldn’t wait to create the perfect space for our little one.
Introducing the Potter Library table
We were lucky enough to discover the Great Little Trading Company when the little lady was just a few months old and have been huge fans ever since. It’s one of those companies that has so many lovely products that you can’t help but want to buy everything.
We’ve bought lots of bits and pieces over the last two years and regularly have a browse through their website and catalogue to see what’s new. As soon as I saw the Potter Library Table on their website I just knew we had to get it.
Not only would it look perfect, but she would probably love it too given her fondness for books. As proud, but financially stretched new homeowners we (mostly I) spent about a month or two obsessing about it before we committed to ordering it.
The original £90 price tag did make me really consider the purchase, but I have to say it is totally worth the price it commands. Designed by the stylish folks at GLTC, they have managed to put a modern twist on the classic library table design producing what has to be the sweetest little library table in existence.
Made from sturdy MDF which has been finished in a stylish matt white, exposed pine legs and a cute little blackboard sign. It not only looks but feels well designed and put together.
It is as GLTC say on their website, the perfect height for young readers. Strategically placed next to the little lady’s bed, she can very easily browse, select and put back her books as and when she pleases.
As an independent toddler, she loves to do things herself and it’s great to have a piece of furniture that promotes that.
Before we ordered it I wasn’t sure how many books we’d be able to fit in it. Truth be told I was a little worried we’d have a surplus of books but I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how many books you can fit in it (loads!).
It’s really easy to organise and looks good pretty much any way you decide to arrange your books. The little lady has books in all sorts of sizes and formats and yet it always looks stylish no matter what.
I absolutely adore the Potter Library Table. It is my favourite piece of furniture in Ella’s room and is always the first thing people comment on when they walk into her room.
I would definitely recommend it to anyone else with little bookworms. So if you are looking for that standout bookcase then this has to be it. The fact that it happens to also be stylish, practical and functional just gives you fewer excuses not to buy it!
What do you think of the Potter Library Table and its twist on a classic design? Are you more of a traditional bookshelf person, but quite tempted by this design? I know I was, so I’d love to hear what you think!
