Rolling bookcase by Michaël Bihain

The round shape seems to be very popular these days. We have seen round tables, coffee tables, round entertainment centers, round Storage spaces and even rolling fireplace designs. So it’s not that unusual to see this round bookcase. It’s a very modern and impressive design and it comes in many bright colors.

This unusual bookcase features several cells or storage units that are very small and can only accommodate one book each. So it’s not the most appropriate design for those who have a large book collection. You will have to be very selective in your choices as you can only use this piece to store 15 books. So create a top for the best 15 books you have. The idea behind this project was to create something different that differentiates itself from the conventional bookcase design. It’s more than a bookcase, in fact it’s a decorative piece, more than a practical storage space.

The Patratas, as it is called, was designed by Michaël Bihain and it’s made of expanded polypropylene. It’s a very modern adaptation of the traditional design. It would be a very interesting addition to a modern or contemporary home. Since it comes in many bright colors, you can choose whatever goes best with the rest of your furniture and interior design. It’s not a very practical or functional piece of furniture, but it’s a great decorative piece.

Tahoe Noir coffee and end table collection

Coffee tables are not mainly practical or functional furniture pieces. They are usually decorative, especially in the case of the coffee table. It’s a piece that is usually placed in the middle of the house. It’s a nice piece that usually comes in handy in the morning, when people usually have coffee, or when guests come over and then it serves as a place to store the cups and glasses.

This collection includes a coffee table and an end table. They are both elegant and beautiful. The coffee table is especially interesting because, unlike most of the pieces of its type, it also provides the user with some extra storage space. So it’s both practical and stylish. The end table, on the other hand, it’s supposed to provide storage space. This is exactly what it does, also with style. This collection is made of wood and it has a beautiful noir finish.

The pieces are available separately or as a set. The coffee table is available for $699 or $499 on sale and the end table for $399 or $299 on sale. The whole set is $1 098 or $699 on sale. It’s a pretty good deal.They would both look great in any type of home. And if you place them in the same room, they will have a uniform and elegant look. If you need them both anyway, then it would be smart to purchase the set and not the pieces separately.

Librespiral bookcase by Gerardo Mari

Designer Gerardo Mari has created this unusual freestanding collection for Danese Milano. It’s a collection composed of two freestanding bookcase designs. One of them is taller and not movable while the other one is equipped with wheels. The main idea behind this project was to create a bookcase that allows the user to have access to the piece from any angle. And the result was successful. The bookcase has a turning mechanism that allows you rotate the modules. It’s just like a sunglass holder.

The rotating mechanism is a really nice detail because not a lot of bookcases are as accessible as these ones. Usually bookcases are hard to access and you waste a lot of time when searching fir a particular book. But with this ingenious rotating system it’s all easier. Of course, it might take more space than the usual mounted shelves or the suspended bookcases, but it has an interesting and practical design, and this is a big plus.

These freestanding bookcases have an asymmetric but beautiful shape which gives them an original look. They come in different colors. There are mainly three color tones, black, white and orange and they are combined in different ways to get contrastive looks. The bookcases are made of coated steel so they are very durable, resistant and sturdy. The shapes of these bookcases are simple but striking.They would look great in a modern or contemporary home.

Simple black bookcase

If you own a small apartment then you probably know how important space is. Storage is always a problem in small places because there’s not a lot of room for storage closets or other types of furniture pieces. So shelves and bookcases are probably the best solution.

They are usually mounted on the walls so they don’t use the floor space and they can be placed wherever you want. They are a great way of adding some storage space in your home without having to sacrifice other furniture pieces. This design, presented here, is a very simple bookcase made from black-stained oak veneer and the dimensions are H72xW17¼xD12″. It has a very nice and fresh look and it has a shape that allows you to place it wherever you have some extra space.

It’s a creation of the BoConcept design team.It’s a very functional furniture piece that also has a very pleasant and beautiful look. You can also add other similar pieces to create an original design for your home.Available from 689$.

Bookshelf with fireplace incorporated

Books and fireplaces don’t usually go very well together, unless you’re using the books to start a fire. But there’s someone who thins this could work. And this someone actually did something about it. He created a fireplace that is incorporated in a bookshelf.

It’s called Helios and it’s a very creative space. The bookshelf is made from black or white painted steel, so it’s going to go on fire. And the books are not either, because the fireplace is protected by a 8 mm thick safety glass. There’s also a remote control that you can use to turn on the fireplace. It’s definitely an interesting concept that would turn your living room, or any room you choose to place it in, a very interesting place.

If you’re looking for a special and original piece to include in your home, then you’ll probably like this one a lot. It’s not just for fun, because of the fireplace. It’s also equally particle, since it’s a bookshelf that can be used for storage.

Doll house bookcase

A very ingenious idea coming from Harry Allen. He designed a modular bookcase that ended up looking like a doll house. It’s not an opportunity that you have every day: to have a house inside your house. It’s true, it’s just a doll house, but still a house.

The design will remind you of your childhood and the way you used to play with dolls and pretend they were alive and they had their own home and friends and all that stuff. That’s if you’re a girl. If not, this bookcase will remind you of…nothing, in the best case scenario. It’s definitely a special storage unit. If you don’t want it, your kid will take it without even thinking about it. But enough about the doll house shape. Let’s talk about the functional part of this bookcase. It has 15 shelves of various sizes where you can store your books, magazines, even CDs or DVDs or collectibles. How cool would it be to have a doll collection and to store it in this piece? Think about it.

“Conceal” bookshelf by Umbra

Everybody must have at least 2 or 3 books in their home. And when you have so few books you never know where to place them so that you remember where they are and they are also safe. Here’s a solution: the “Conceal” bookshelf designed by Umbra.

It’s a very simple piece that doesn’t even have a color. Actually it becomes invisible behind the stack of books. It’s an ingenious way to store your books or even magazines and to save some space in the same time.The shelf is made from durable powder coated steel mounted on the wall with 2 prongs. The wall mounting hardware is included. When the shelf is in place and ready to use, all you have to do is place your books and it’s done. It holds up to 15 pounds and it’s 5 1/2″tall x 7″ wide x 6 1/2″deep. In case one shelf in not enough, you can always add some more.
