      As in the previous photo, these stairs are useful in transforming the staircase, an obligatory design, into a feature. It is efficient, a bookcase and a staircase, and similarly transforms space into a place.

      This is an awesome idea for a book case. I takes up a little more floor space than your average book case, but it would work perfectly in an area like the one pictured. Love the metal edging on the stairs, the heavy iron rails, and the lighting for each shelf. Beautifully and functionally creative.

      Lighted bookcase in the stairs (presumably to a dreamy reading loft) // Hmmmm perhaps not exactly functional but it saves space, it's cute, and I totally love the idea ;)

      Such a smart idea for a home library, especially for a small space. I love the staircase/ ladder concept and having the books places inside.

      like this idea for a small room or hallway nook: tall book case w/built in stairs. save space w/out an additional stool/ladder.

      Ok. so...I'll need storage...and I need a ladder...couldn't i figure out a design for stairs to the loft - still utilizing every inch of space?? The idea of a ladder... ::shrugs::...stairs?? YES. books.

      Hardcore stairs with books - cute idea even though it would be more like a ladder than a staircase

      ladder built into the bookcase! will be perfect for my dream house with incredibly tall ceilings.
