When we read for a long time, we often have trouble finding a really comfortable posture. Balzac’s samoussin holds the book for you. You can relax your neck, stretch your legs, put it down and turn on your side. 

It is also very practical for digital tablets. You can use it as an iPad cushion to flip through a magazine or watch a series or show.

More than just a practical object, Balzac’s samoussin will become a decorative element in its own right.

The base and the triangle are easily separated and the latter will make an excellent companion for your little naps at the back of the sofa!

The Balzac samoussin is a tribute to the great French writer Honoré de Balzac, whose life itself is like a novel. It is an opportunity to dive into the reading of The Lily of the Valley or to watch Colonel Chabert on your tablet.
