Wordless Wednesday: Bookshelves for Book Lovers

May 9, 2012

Our friends over at Flavorpill—and that clever Emily Temple, in particular—have gone out of their way to find 30 outrageous forms of book storage for us lovers of books! Her inspiration is a new book, titled (what else?) Bookshelf, by blogger Alex Johnson. Not only are these images visually appealing, but Emily has indicated (where possible) where we can purchase some of these lovelies for our own homes! Number 6 is a perfect way to combine your treadmill efforts with your book storage and book reading; number 8 provides a “continent of reading” (I’m jealous of how many books Texas can hold—but I’m afraid Rhode Island can only house a Post-it©…); while I’d be tempted to fill number 14 with A Dog’s  Purpose, Marley & Me and The Art of Racing in the Rain—but Dewey? Not so much.

Which is your favorite? I must admit that number 1, the baroque book shelves, would look best in my home—after all—it’s a Victorian!

    There are some really strange bookshelves like the bikini bookshelf or the read, not read which looks annoying to get the books from! But they’re all very cool! I loved the whale for a boy’s room and I think my favorite is the infinite bookshelf but I thought the round treadmill bookshelf was great. I loved the Lost in Chair but I think if I used it to really store books it probably wouldn’t be very comfortable!

      Amy: I agree. I thought I’d lose my iPhone in the “Lost in Chair”… It does make me want to add some more books shelves to my space—even though there’s definitely no more room. Thanks for stopping by!
