Celebrating World Book Day – World Book Day is a celebration of the book as a design object of enormous potential and the impact it has on our lives. It’s a day where we can reflect on the stories that have shaped us and the characters that have inspired us. But have you ever wondered what literature and interior design have in common? Both can transport us to different worlds and evoke emotions that stay with us long after the experience has ended. So, in honor of World Book Day, Interior Design Magazines has decided to compare ten literature classics to ten pieces of furniture and lighting.

The Classics Seen as Design Furniture
“Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austen
What piece of furniture could personify best the book’s aura than a chaise Long? This classic novel exudes elegance and refinement, much like Como Chaise Long, by Brabbu. Both are timeless and sophisticated, evoking a sense of luxury and leisure.
“To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee
Just like the novel, an armchair is comforting and nostalgic. Design by Brabbu, the Clerk Armchair is a piece of furniture that invites you to relax and reflect on life’s complexities, much like the themes in the novel. Can you imagine doing it in
“The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald
This novel is all about decadence and excess, and what better way to capture that than with a dazzling chandelier? LUXXU‘s Magna Chandelier captures the novel’s opulence and luxury with a touch of ultimate sophistication.
“The Catcher in the Rye” by J.D. Salinger
This classic novel is all about rebellion and nonconformity, so we thought a counter stool would feel appropriate. The Bourbon Counter Tool is a piece of furniture that, just like the book, sets everybody in the mood for questioning traditional standards and encourages relaxation and playfulness.
“The Picture of Dorian Gray” by Oscar Wilde
This novel is all about beauty and vanity, much like an ornate mirror. Both capture the allure of the superficial and the dangers of becoming obsessed with appearance. One might even become fragmented… LUXXU‘s new Algerone Mirror is the embodiment of all that!
“The Hobbit” by J.R.R. Tolkien
This novel is all about adventure and the natural world, much like what some book lovers look forward to. So why not represent this bestseller as a bookcase? The Algerone Bookcase, also from LUXXU, captures the essence of and the tranquility of indulging in reading activities.
“One Hundred Years of Solitude” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
This novel is magical and mystical, much like a hanging light fixture. Both capture the ethereal quality of life and the surreal events that can occur. Isn’t the Botti Suspension by DelightFull a perfect match?
