good old books

Pho­to: House of Fras­er

01 Another angle of view

To pre­vent the books on the shelves from look­ing too for­mal, arrange them not only ver­ti­cal­ly, but also hor­i­zon­tal­ly, and also break up the col­or rhythm of the bind­ings with dec­o­ra­tive acces­sories.

Today, designers create objects with rows of read books that have nowhere to store, but it’s a pity to throw them away, performing the functions of furniture.

02 Always at hand

A con­ve­nient option for plac­ing books will be shelves built into uphol­stered fur­ni­ture. For exam­ple, locat­ed in the area of ​​​​the arm­rests or behind the back of the sofa.

03 Furniture with intelligence

A cof­fee table can also be a great place to store lit­er­a­ture: the Big El floor sys­tem, the mod­ules of which are con­nect­ed using mag­nets (a); Book Por­cu­pine mod­el with 17 dif­fer­ent sec­tions for plac­ing books (b); James Port wood­en table ©.

04 Word vertical

Anoth­er solu­tion is to build a tow­er of tomes using col­umn shelv­ing. It is inter­est­ing that the shelves in some mod­els are lost among the mul­ti-col­ored spines, cre­at­ing the feel­ing that the books are sim­ply stacked in a pile.

05 Hooked

There are also struc­tures for stor­ing fre­quent­ly used books (col­lec­tions of recipes in the kitchen, school text­books, ency­clo­pe­dias), in which the shelves or the pub­li­ca­tions them­selves are sus­pend­ed using spe­cial hold­ers.

06 Puzzle

The con­cept of many cre­ations includes ele­ments of play and cre­ativ­i­ty. For exam­ple, design­ers offer to assem­ble a com­po­si­tion from many shelves on the wall, because books in such a frame become art objects.

07 Bedtime stories

To orga­nize the stor­age of books in a small pri­vate area, adopt “cun­ning” dec­o­rat­ing tech­niques. For exam­ple, place the pub­li­ca­tions behind the head of the bed, or use the space under the sleep­ing bed for this pur­pose.

Numerous volumes can be “settled” in the bedroom under the ceiling, which will significantly save space in a modest room

08 Smart environment

Real bib­lio­philes can fit shelves into any free nooks and cran­nies: under the ceil­ing, in cor­ners or nar­row nich­es, bor­der the door and win­dow with them.
