Bent Malden Bookcase

I went to the museum yesterday and I saw some old wooden spoons. I loved their natural appearance and the way the wood looked and had a special patina after some years. I admit it looked even better when it was not covered with dye or a protective layer of lacquer. i do not know why but aged wood looks incredibly nice, thing that is proven by this Bent Malden Bookcase. It is made of reclaimed wood and it has a natural wax finish that makes it possible for it to age naturally without cracking or fading its colour.

This particular bookcase looks so modern and it really has a special design, bringing together some old things like reclaimed wood and new and totally cool ways of making a piece of wood come to life. The bookcase is made to look like it is made of different compartments put together and assembled, when it is not true. Each shelf is completing the one on top of it and where there are two united compartments there will be only one on top.

The bookcase it not straight, but rather bent and this seems to be perfect in a circular room. But since this is very rare, the bookcase will look peculiar in a normal study room. The special look of the bookcase is given mostly by the marks left by the former owners or circumstances of the reclaimed wood that was taken from buildings, barns, old homes and so on. So I guess you can actually get something really beautiful out of the trash. And selling for $5,595.00.
