BookShelf of the Week: Freshome’s 30 Creative Bookshelves Designs

For this week’s Bookshelf of the Week I thought I’d do something a little different. The bookshelf shot shown above is from a collection of thirty designs featured in an article from Freshome, entitled 30 of the Most Creative Bookshelves Designs. Featured, are some of the most amazing bookshelves I’ve seen, which vary from ingenious space-saving solutions to solely indulgent artistic designs. So good is this journey into bookshelf heaven that I consider it to be unmissable, hence my reason for using this week’s Bookshelf of the Week feature to point to it .

While you’re visiting Freshome you may also want to check out the accompanying comments for the article – visitors have also added a number of their own favourite bookshelf designs.

About Rob

Rob, a self-confessed bibliophile, is without any hope of rehabilitation. He gets unnaturally excited over anything book-shaped, and if book sniffing were a crime then he would have been locked up years ago (which wouldn't bother him in the slightest provided his cell was lined with books).

    Have to say there are some great bookshelves on there! But I think the one you picked out is the best, you could easily spend more time more time admiring it than reading the contents though.

    It does make you wonder Bart, how many of these are simply for show – I’m guessing the majority of them (call me a cynic :o))

  3. Oh my goodness, WANT. My books all wind up stacked sideways anyways, I may as well make it pretty! Although I can’t help looking at that picture and think of how much space is going to waste that could be filled with more books…
