Nick and I are both avid readers and would love to have a room in our house dedicated to our growing collection of hard cover books.
Since that is not going to happen in the near future, or ever, we love to find unique shelves to display our books. Even if you don’t read books, or care about book shelves that much, display shelves are still great for showing off your Bottle Lamps and other DIY craft projects. By the way, having a few books on the shelves will make you look very smart when company comes over. ;)
While browsing online the other day I found some very creative and awesome looking shelf designs I had to share with you. Take a look and let us know which one you like best!
The Equilibrium Bookcase
The Equilibrium bookcase is a new design by Malagana. Cantilevered modules are stacked upon each other at a single angled point. This unique display shelf catches attention by creating a sense of amusement and surprise.
The Book Tree
The Book Tree by Kostas Design can be purchased for DIY assembling. If you’re the romantic type and long for summer afternoon readings out in the park, these Book Tree shelves will help you recapture the feeling.
The Bookworm Shelf
The Bookworm Shelf by Kartell is a little on the pricey side, but this creative design is well worth it. A careful analysis of extrusion technology has allowed the creation of a curvy bookcase which assumes any desired shape, without compromising strength and functionality, a bookcase design of industrial scale that can rightfully be considered the world’s most daring and revolutionary.
The Kulma Shelf
This unique framing shelf by Martina Carpelan is a shelf that can be hanged either in a positive or a negative corner of a room. The idea is to highlight the corner surrounding the shelf. Pretty neat idea and fairly simple to recreate.
The Skateboard Shelf
The Skateboard shelf is a piece of furniture that every skateboard enthusiast would love. A simple and inexpensive shelf to make, you could find used skateboards at garage sales, that is perfect for students and young adults. It provides substantial storage for books, to display DIY projects and even skateboard paraphernalia.
