Bibliochaise by Nobody&co
I was just thinking how perfect this would be for my humble little apartment when I read the designer’s quote:
“Twelve years ago we lived in a tiny flat, full of books but with nowhere to sit. Problems are always the best inspirations.That same year we drew the first Bibliochaise: a cube in which to sit, with slots all around to put books in. Geometry is magic. Each time you draw a cube or a square, something wonderful can happen.”
Perfect summary. Apparently the chair can hold 300 books and (even more win) comes in a range of different colors. You can visit its home right here.

This was probably the most talked about sketch of the night, and deservedly so. From the moment those black and white credits began, it was clear what was happening. Between this and last week’s Homeland shout out during the Bloomberg cold open, at least one of the SNL writers must be a fan. Hathaway’s chin-trembling, overly emotional, corkboard-loving Carrie was spot-on, and Hader did a great devout Saul. Of course no Homeland spoof could be complete without everyone’s least favorite daughter.
Fun fact: At the NYTV Festival Late Night Writers’ panel, Colin Jost (co-headwriter of SNL) mentioned that doing pop culture parodies are more difficult than ever because the audience is so splintered and there are few entities the everyone recognizes. He specifically mentioned ‘Homeland’ as a challenge. So much for that.
“She is recognized for her impressive resume, her stunning beauty, and her classic style, but to this day she remains true to the quality that was evident from the moment we first met: effortlessness. She lives in the moment, she knows what she likes, and she is very clear about the path she is on and the lines of connection that have brought her to this powerful moment in her life and career.”
