How To Choose Furniture That Would Look Awesome In Your Home Library

Selecting furniture for your home library is an easy task, right? Well…yes and no. If you a simple and straight-forward design then there’s not a lot to think about. But if you’re the type that wants to take things one step further without necessarily making a big fuss about it, then you should take the time to find the right pieces.

A coffee table made of books would look great in a home library or office. It’s not overly sophisticated and yet it has that something that makes it look special and unusual.

Instead of a plain and simple bookcase, how about something a bit more creative? For example, this piece is made of an old boat. It has lots of character and it lets you combine two passions: reading and fishing or sailing away in your boat.

A stack of books can become the base for your new library lamp. You have to drill holes through their centers so the wires can go through. You can also make a unique lampshade.

Upcycle an old door frame and transform it into shelving for storing your books in the library. An alternative can be to use an old ladder.

And speaking of book storage, this design will constantly remind you to read. If you’re a book lover, this will be an interesting piece.

This design is just what you need if you’re a cat owner with a large book collection. The book bookshelf has a cat climber built into its design. It’s fun for the cats and pretty great for you too.

These check bookshelves could become great accessories for your home library. Fill them with books after you read them to keep track of your progress.

Now that we’ve explored a few options for storing and displaying your books, let’s also figure out how you can include some seating into the room. It can be the perfect opportunity to introduce some color into the room.{found on flickr}.

Or perhaps you want to focus on shape in which case this design would be really great. It pretty much looks like a super long flying carpet which only makes it even more interesting.
