If 'bibliophilia' is a love of books - what is a love of bookshelves?
How fantastic are these modern interpretations of the humble bookcase!
This delicious reading chair from Fishbol Design Atelier is crying out to be sitting in my lounge - love love love! OK it needs a cushion and it does come with various options in felt.
Imagine a Kartell bookworm curling and unfurling along your hallway....sigh
And I love the organised chaos of this Cyrill Drummerson design.
Check out this metal coffee table Nar Bookcase by Omer Unal.
At first glance I wasn't sure whether I could subject my beloved volumes to the wire bisection of its suspension storage design...but on reflection it's ingenious! The hanging arrangement doubles as a bookmark and, as an added bonus, protects the books from dust.
And I couldn't leave out this little gem...Flying Vee. The stark and simple L and V shaped metal shelves let the booklover design the space according to their own whim - brilliant!
These two are for my friend G who giggled at, but appreciated, the thought that went into colour coding my bookcase ;)
I'm starting a thread on other peoples' bookshelves - what does yours look like? I'd love to make a photo montage - please send in a pic!
