I am Bookworm, a velvet wing chair. A velvet reading chair if you will. Descended from generations of wingback chairs in the great libraries of England and finished in Old Boot's comfy-as-time-itself, vintage velvet that is so soft, smooth and hard wearing. Touch me! Sit in me! In me you can read, debate, write your diary or even, I suppose, listen to the wireless. I am a seat of learning, built of proper stuff. Sturdy hardwood frame. Farrow and twin piped detailing.  And a sprung frame base and sprung back. Tell wing chairs that today and they laugh at you. Did I mention my cushion? Did I? Generously long to give you extra deep seating and filled with a foam core to keep me looking studious, wrapped with a duck feather layer to make me ever more inviting. Come and sit in my lap and let's read.
