Bookshelves

Space Saving Reading Furniture Collection

Practical and space saving are the best words which can describe this reading furntiure collection created by Remy van Oers in association with Coolen/AttrackZ and presented at Dutch Design Week.A few weeks ago we covered a chair combined with book storage, now this collection include the Reading Chair consists of the Reading Table and the Reading Lamp.Also the lamp keeps the books that you are currently reading safe in its storage space. All three items have basically the same idea: to save space and to offer you a place to store books and also to have a great design. I admit, the idea is original and nice and it drew my attention.

You can store books or magazines in the hollow place left inside the chair, table or lamp body of these furniture pieces and they will look great and be really handy at the same time. When you sit comfortably in this chair you only need to stretch your hand and take a book from under the seat.

The Skate Bookshelves

As a mother I can tell you that the only way to make some order in your kids room is to find some things that you can use to deposit their stuff, things that look cool for them and are attractive for their age, whatever that might be. If you try to impose your decision or taste in furniture or in the room design you will find the new furniture that you like so much broken “by accident” or something similar. So take them with you when you decide what furniture to buy for their room or involve them in deciding the design of the room. For example you can suggest them this really cool Skate bookshelf that is (or at least looks like) made of skateboards and that will be used for storing books.

These modern and funny bookshelves are made of three skateboards horizontally and three vertically that intertwine each other with the help of some tiny canals carved in the wood. It’s fun and very useful, too, as these shelves can be used for all the books and magazines your kids spread all over the place. You can do that for real, from old skateboards, but you’d better find a specialist that will be able to use some wooden boards to obtain some components that only looks like skateboards. You can keep the original skateboard design or you can paint the whole furniture with only one color, preferably black or brown and then apply a layer of transparent lacquer. I guess these shelves are very good for both books and DVDs or CDs and can be just what your boy wants in his room.

The modular scaffolding by Maria Yasko

If you are looking to add an attractive look to your living room, then I suggest a decorative wall shelf.Depending on the size of the wall and the location in the room, you might want to install multiple shelves on the same wall in different sizes and levels. The modular scaffolding by Maria Yasko gives a minimal look and a comfortable feel to the bedroom.

It combines many shelves that you can use for storing books or other items in a natural way, by linking their edges with rounded ends and assembling them together in a very well designed way, as the designer intended this modular scaffolding to look like a ladder or a scaffolding or even a tree, hiding the original design of a number of shelves behind this unusual stylized design.Goa bit further and add some very inspired wall stickers with futuristic trees or something similar and you will see that your living room has already changed its appearance totally.{ found on behance }
