This media unit is named for Virginia Woolf and has plenty of character, thanks to charming idiosyncrasies in each carefully selected piece of Ash heartwood. I sand and oil the wood by hand to reveal the natural beauty. Tapered solid wood legs add the finishing touch. The generous interior provides plenty of room of one’s own, for your favourite books or collectables.
I admire Virginia Woolf for being a pioneer. She became a writer when girls (even in affluent London homes) had less power and education than men. She pushed back against limitations and conventions – she wrote several of her most important books while she was in a relationship with Vita Sackville-West: To the Lighthouse, Orlandoand The Waves. Virginia also wrote about the difficulties female writers and intellectuals faced, as in A Room of One’s Own. Her writing has influenced many authors, including Margaret Atwood, Gabriel Garcia Márquez and Toni Morrison.
