An Anthropologie Tree

I just saw this clever tree in the Rochester Anthropologie store:
Old books stacked high to create a tree shape, with large lights.


I want this - in my Library - that I don't have - too bad I get rid of my books after I read them - this sounds like a new project for me, which of course would require an addition on the house, gorgeous built-in shelves, red leather chairs with ottomans, a fireplace, braided rugs, and maybe even a small dog - maybe next year??

  1. Oh I am so glad that you shared this. I agree it would be cool to do but just think, you can do it...just use the small old books and make a small tabletop version. I am going to do it next year and just saved this to my pinterest! Thanks.

  5. And be sure to add in an extra red leather chair and ottoman so your knitter friend can come see you (and I will need a side table to set my chart keeper on). That book tree is something even I could get into! Have a great weekend, Happy Birthday!

  8. This is a small world we live in....I was looking on the internet to see if I could find the tree with ribbons the had at the Rochester eastview store and I stumbled across your blog. Very funny and my daughter pointed this book tree out to me when we were shopping. I have to thank you for bringing it back to my thoughts of how cute it was. I got busy thinking of buying gifts to realize that it IS adorable. I think the side table version would be perfect. Thanks again. Suzanne

  14. Splendid in it's raw simplicity! It could be made with a hollow center to use less books, yes?

  15. Oh, that would be so great to have a "library" at home with comfy chairs and a clever tree of books. Anthropologie has the most fun displays!
