The library ladder is form and function fused together beautifully. Though it dates back to the Victorian era, it is not reserved for the lavish library with its velvet seating and leather bound books.
As a matter of fact, this library ladder, isn't even reserved for the library. I could see it being used in the kitchen and butlers pantry.
