Biblioteca Bookrack by Umbra

So clever, and definitely a piece that people will ask about…it would be interesting to see if others are inspired to find their own coffee tables and turn them into book racks.

“matt carr found inspiration when he found two vintage coffee tables. creating a bookrack for his own home, he configured them ingeniously to give these tables a new life as bookshelves. this design is now re-created with a mahogany natural top and black lacquered legs.”

Bee Board Storage on sale

So, yes, yes, we’ve seen this before, but they’re on sale so I’m reposting. And maybe it’s the compulsive mover in me that finds these shelves so irresistible (they’re incredibly light). Is it that they arose out of humanitarian work? Or maybe that it’s almost 50% off?

Sapporo Shelving, One High

It’s so nice to know there is modular furniture out there that can grow and change according to your needs. This system can be changed depending on how high or tall or wide you’d like it, simply by adding or taking away an individual unit. The photo shown here is one unit with a steel base (the doors are sold separately), but you could afford to buy this now as a tv stand (for example) and then add on later to make a bookcase. The back is completely finished as well, so you could also use it as a room divider if you went with buying a taller unit.

“The Sapporo Shelving System by Jesús Gasca combines the elegant minimalism of Japanese design with Spain’s technically refined modernism to produce a system of case goods that meets a multiplicity of needs in a gracious and flexible format…”

H 21″ W 47.5″ D 14″

Joy Rotating Wood Shelf Unit

I posted this over a year ago, but I just found it from a US retailer so I thought it was worthy of a repost.

“With its ability to rotate every shelf to a new or different position, joy has a versatility that can be claimed by very few shelving units.

The upright and shelves are constructed of a honeycomb core with steel reinforcing inside and finished in a choice of bleached oak or wengé-stained oak or can be constructed of a medium density fiberboard with internal steel corner reinforcing and finished in scratch resistant embossing in a choice of various colors. the steel supporting joints are painted in a choice of black aluminum or graphite color.”

Eiffel Bookcase

This is labeled as children’s furniture, yet looks to be suitable in most rooms with storage needs. Storage pieces can be somewhat difficult to choose, and often quite more expensive than most of us are able to budget for, so finding something that is environmentally conscious and under the grand mark is worth considering. Take note of the dimensions, though, since it is made on a smaller scale…

“The Argington line of children’s furniture unites contemporary aesthetics with a healthy, non-toxic and environmentally conscious outlook. The Eiffel Book Case is made of highly durable Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified sustainable birch wood with a 100% non-toxic, water-based finish. The Eiffel Book Case has interchangeable doors and cases, and features loads of storage space, including an open center for books and other play objects accessible to children.”

60″ wide x 38″ tall x 12.5″ deep

Available in four colors: white, birch, walnut, and red maple
Door colors and cases are interchangeable
