The State Library furniture is pretty old, and stylish for 1913.

One of the things I like most about the @library_vic is the chairs ! 107 years old now, still used, and still look vaguely ‘modern’, with simple lines and square cut-outs, in contrast to the very traditional carved and varnished decoration on the central lectern thing, where a librarian would sit in order to shush everyone – or maybe to answer enquires? or maybe I’m making the whole thing up. Also, so many tourists !! I wouldn’t have thought it would be a tourist site, but it is.
