3 unique shelving designs you’ll want for your home

AFP – If you’re a bookworm and constantly looking for original ways to display your tomes, these unique designs will surely inspire you.

Nothing feels more comforting than snuggling up with a good book and a nice hot cup of tea.

Do you recognize yourself in this description? You’re not alone.

Interior design and architecture site Deezen has created a lookbook of the most amazing bookcases to take advantage of the cool late summer days and we take a look at three of them.

IMPOSING (YET MINIMALIST)

Canadian firm RSAAW designed a two-story library for a Vancouver home renovation.

The large reading space is made up of large square lockers stacked on two levels, giving the whole area a stately yet light feel. The wooden bookcase is integrated into the staircase that connects the levels.

WALL-MOUNTED (BUT ELEGANT)

At the Alfred Street residence in Australia, reading is no laughing matter. Studio Four has designed a built-in bookcase in light American oak. The matching wooden furniture gives the interior decoration coherence and elegance. Perfect for a reading break.

ANGLE (BUT DISCREET)

At Publishers Loft in the United States, Buro Koray Duman designed a bookcase capable of holding thousands of books. To store all those books in the loft, the bookcase goes around the apartment, with shelves at 45 degrees. If you stand on one side of the room you can see the books, on the other side they are hidden. Not seen, not read?
