Bookcase-Staircase

.
Now this has got to be the most fabulous idea EVER for saving space.

It's a combined bookcase-staircase. You can see the whole thing here.

If it was my house, I think I'd probably end up living just on the stairs.

I want one like that! I have shelves over windows and doors and a study full of books and a spare room with floor to ceiling bookshelves. Now I want a book staircase too - sadly our 1980s stairs don't lend themselves easily to the idea.

It's a nuisance, isn't it? Daughter and I wanted a bookcase on the stairs, but were over-ruled. Some nonsense about people bumping into it with cups of tea in their hand, or the cats head-butting it as they hurtled downhill in their occasional mad fashion.

And the fact that it would be in the way whenever we try to manoeuvre mattresses or chairs from one floor to another.

Just excuses, that's what we think.

It's just because men aren't nearly so dexterous when it comes to avoiding bookcases :P

I most certainly want a staircase like that, but it would probably increase the value of any house well beyond my budget...
