The bookthrone story so far…

The idea for the bookthrone came whilst James was working with young offenders who felt they had few job prospects and that reoffending was inevitable. James decided to develop the bookthrone with the goal of employing young offenders on release.

As part of the Prince’s Trust enterprise scheme, the bookthrone has developed to achieve optimum ergonomics and an interlocking structure. The bookthrone you see today is the latest development: British, ethical and natural; a unique library armchair.
