CHAIRHUNT: The Chairs of the James B. Hunt Jr. Library

Gwen Wood Emery


The Hunt Library is full of chairs.

They present themselves as comfortable furniture, beautiful sculpture, and engaging interior architecture. They invite us to pause and sit, read, write, reflect, and lose ourselves in wondering.

They are a key reason this library has earned an international reputation for capturing the spirit of discovery and innovation -- and they provide the NC State community with a world-class collection of iconic 20th- and 21st-century furniture.

Created by one of the key people who planned the collection, this book is a user's guide to Hunt's diverse chairs, a catalogue of their essential facts, and a celebration of their beauty and historical significance.

CHAIRHUNT offers a starting point for anyone wishing to learn more about the world of human creativity into which the chairs of the Hunt Library provide a powerful lens.
