If you don’t read books and don’t care about the bookshelves, don’t be too quick to close this article. Just think about it. What impression does a room full of books make? That’s right! It will immediately make you look smarter!
Make sure to put some smart books about topics you barely understand like quantum physics, advanced mathematics or neuroscience. Then decorate the book display with some antique looking weird sciency things you’ve found in a thrift store (a figurine of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles won’t do this time, sorry). If in need, consult this list of gorgeus bookshelf ideas. Of course, you might run into a problem if some smart ass tries to chit chat about something you have in your bookcase. Don’t worry, just fake a phone call and when you finish, no one will ever remember the topic.
Now that we agree that it’s essential to have a library, let’s take a look at some of the most creative bookshelf designs out there.
Which one of these book racks would you put at your house?
1. The Invisible Book Shelf
“This book shelf, which holds up to 15 pounds of books, screws directly into a wall stud and presto – you have an invisible book shelf! The maximum stack height is 16-Inches. All hardware is included so all you need is a screwdriver. The Conceal Book Shelf, which has already won design awards, is innovative, inspirational and imaginative.” (Designer: Miron Lior)
2. Industrial Corner Pipe Shelf
“The Corner Industrial Bookshelf is a great conversation piece turning heavy iron piping into a modern urban look that will add a sense of history and character to any space.” (Designer: KKatz)
This unique solution lets you find your favorite book at night without waking up the whole family. (Designer: Tembolat Gugkaev)
4. Malagana: Equilibrium Bookcase
“With its cantilevered modules stacked upon each other at a single angled point, Equilibrium is a unique furniture piece that immediately catches attention by creating a sense of amusement and surprise. While its compartments seem to float in the air, Equilibrium can hold over 120 Lbs of weight and its different modules allow to keep books and magazines organized in a natural tilted position that eliminates the need for bookends.” (Designer: Alejandro Gomez)
5. Handmade Stacked Teacup Shelve
