Funnily enough, there are two of these being sold. But I have opted for the 1950s Robin Day for Hille bookcase on eBay you see here.
Why? Because it’s cheaper. As simple as that. If you see two pieces that are similar, you would always opt for the more affordable option. At least, I would being so frugal.
If you want to see the other, you can find that here. It’s still worth a look. Both sellers will take an offer though, so perhaps make that offer to both and see how far your money can go. That’s if you like it. I certainly do. But you know that because I am featuring it here.
This is, of course, a stylish bit of British midcentury modern design, made from (I think) beech and with tapered legs and finished with sliding glass doors. This kind of design really does not age. In fact, it has never been more hip. And with the Robin Day name attached to it, there’s every chance it could appreciate in terms of the price too.
Oh yes, the price. The one pictured here is on a ‘Buy It Now’ for £300 or best offer. The other one is available £450. Have a look at both and make up your mind.
Update: There’s a third one for a whopping £645 too.
