Not Your Average Bookcase

I was searching for a unit to store books and found this awesome site dedicated to blogging about bookcases, bookshelves and the like. You have to check them out because you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see how creative some of the designs really are. I found several of them quite humorous, actually.

I sometimes forget how innovative some people can be.

I’ll share some of my favorite but be sure to check out the rest here.

I bet you can’t guess which video game this was inspired by.

Now you can read from the same chair that displays your books – genius or tacky?

I wonder how comfy it really is…

If Gaudi had a bookstore.

This would look so cool in a kid’s room, or a school. Maybe for a kindergarten teacher. Eh, eh.

See. Humorous, I tell you.

Create a wall of art by displaying your books in these baroque inspired shelves.

Doesn’t appear to hold too many books but it’s a great sculptural piece regardless.

Who said bookshelves need to be flat? Who?

Simple while still managing to be interesting.

I’m really into branches lately, so I may have to consider buying this one.

It’s a shame the picture was ruined with that shirt, yellow hanger and, uh, bone? hanging at the end of the branch.

Fluid.

Sorta resembles a run-down basketball net.

Okay. Seriously, check out the rest here.

    I love the shelves that look like mirror frames! I also like the green tree shelf; you’re right–it would be perfect for a kid’s room.

    I’m having fun reading your blog. =)
