bookcase Bedroom: Most parents want to surround their children with books, but most don’t take that advice quite so literally. This bookcase bedroom designed by Point Architects in Tokyo is a great example of a Japanese approach to space-saving interior design: why have walls or bookshelves when you can have both in one?
The JUXTAPOSED: Religion Bookcase by BlankBlank plays by the numbers: it holds just 7 selected theological books, was made in a very limited edition of 50, and costs $2,500. Once you get past that, it’s easy to appreciate the unique attributes of this most unusual reclaimed hardwood shelf that puts very different religious books, for example the Bhagavad Gita, Bible, Qur’an, Analects of Confucius, the Tao Te Ching, Discourses of the B
6 ft curved shelf: This piece was inspired by the Dr.Seuss books...This is an all original design, one of a kind piece. It is huge standing at 6ft tall! I hope you enjoying viewing as I did creating. Feel free to email with any questions or comments. I will also build any custom design you would like. $725
amazing bookcase... Within the map he fastened 600 tiny Christmas tree lights that represent the nation’s major cities. a shelf based on Hawaii hangs in the kids’ bathroom (each island is a hook), and Alaska is suspended in the upstairs bathroom over the tub.
Invisible Bookshelf Stacks: While these shelves are quite visible when bare, once they are filled up they all but disappear. The resulting effect is the appearance of a disturbingly tall stack of seemingly unsupported by anything but the books of which it is composed. This has quite a lot of potential entertainment value: sit back and watch your visitors bump into one and leap into action trying to keep it from toppling (which it won’t).
Funky Bookcase Angled Bookshelf: Leave it to a former aeronautical engineer to come up with this chic and handy twist on a common bookshelf. The slanted shelves render bookends obsolete while the bare, crisp lines ensure that functionality need not come at the expense of form.
Stairs Bookshelves: What started as a space-saving strategy turned into a centerpiece of this interior redesign. The experience: complete book-overload as the London owners make their way to the loft bedroom above the main floor of their condo. Shot from virtually any perspective the result is remarkably attractive and a good reminder that a lack of space can be a great design opportunity.
