FURNITURE. ~ibrar~ tnrniturc. (Fio. 199.) This PLATE shows a neat, plain set of Library Furniture, such as is in general use. Other articles than those exhibited in the cut are reqflired, according to a purchaser's taste or the size of the room. The Bookcase is five feet two inches wide over the cornice, and nine feet six inches high, with panels of wood at the bottom of the doors and plate-glasses above. The cut represents the article very well indeed. The Library Table is of oval form, with a drawer for paper; the top is cloth, inlaid with a heavy moulded wood edge. The Lounge is spring-seat, and with or without spring.arm, as may be wanted; the arm can be had either right or left. The Spanish Reading Chair is of unique style, and is very com- fortable, being half recumbent. The Reclining Chair is a pattern that is in much favor, and is the most comfortable chair in use; it graduates its position to the will of the person, and enjoys the merit of utility, without compli- cation of machinery; it is also very substantial in construction.
