Shelf Concepts

In Malaysia, bookshelves are just plain bookshelves. But on the World Wide Web, you can find creative, ingenious interpretations of this piece of furniture.


Want to show off books on the shelves but keep them away from dust at the same time? This is a nice compromise of the two criteria.


Want a bookshelf that makes a (rather obvious but cool nonetheless) statement? Swipe this idea.


Want a bookshelf with a hidden message? This is just plain awesome to me.


A bookshelf that doubles up as a portable workspace. Great idea but I have a feeling those books will come tumbling down if you tried to move the furniture.

Pictures of bookcases filled with books always make my heart skip a beat. Shelves that span more than one floor are just… breath-taking!

Arbitrary, Literary Pictures

Been keeping these images for some time, thinking I will post them out in a proper theme but none of them seem to fit each other except that they’re all about books.


I’d love a mug like that, but mine should say “hot chocolate” instead of coffee.


This was my work desktop’s wallpaper. Love the magical, glittery stuff spiralling out of the book.

I don’t know why but I really like this picture of book thongs in books. Very pretty bookmarks.


What an image of the gorgeous Gwyneth Paltrow.

Hoo boy, I want a bedroom like that.

I super love this bookshelf. Stylish and functional!

Another super adorable bookish object. A homemade bookish plant rack. Almost makes me want to do some gardening.

What an awesome-looking garage!

Gasp… a bookshelf that leads to a secret bookshelf?? This is just too much.

Okay, I take that back. This is beyond too much. This is like… being imprisoned in a giant bookshelf except that I WANT TO BE! More pictures here and here.

There wasn’t anything I particularly fancy but I thought how creative it is that they can use skateboards to make all sorts of furniture – from bookshelves to swings! So am putting a link here if that piques your interest.
