25 most Creative Bookshelves

25 most creative bookshelves

             #1. The Infinity Bookshelf      

 Created by the dutch conceptual artist Job Koelewijn, the shape of the Bookshelf is a lemniscate, a figure 8 and the mathematical symbol of infinity, which perfectly represents the notion of the infinite potential and everlasting power of books.

 #2.The Circular Bookshelf

 There are lots of unusual bookshelf designs but no other one where you can "roll" up with a good book. This circular bookshelf by designer Zhdanova Irina also comes with a set of sofas that can be stored as a matching ring.

 #3.The Bookshelf with a Bench

 This design might look cool for the eye, but it isn’t sure that you can stay too relaxed in that space. The Shelves with a Bench was designed by Stanislav Katz, a designer from Latvia with lots of playful ideas.

 #4.The Pulse Bookshelf
 Swedish designer Måns Salomonsen created this awesome pulse bookshelf shaped like a heartbeat in an electrocardiogram.

#5. The Inverted Bookshelf
 The inverted bookshelf turns your living room upside down as it hangs all of the books from the bottom instead of supporting them from below. It's a satisfying optical trick and doesn't damage any of the books.

 #6.The Chair Bookshelf

 This bookshelf/chair was made by Elie Nehme and Mani Mani, a couple of young canadian designers from the Fishbol Design Atelier. 

 #7.The Movement Bookshelf 
 Created by Samulnoli, the Movement Bookshelf is about hugging your books. It includes an arrangement of bent nails which can be shaped in the form of legs and arms acting as book holders.

#8.The Sexy Bookshelf
 There is absolutely no doubt that sex sells like nothing else on the planet and is the most searched item on the Internet. Designer Arun Kumar Francis took that obsession a step further and nailed it on the living room in the form of a cool little bookshelf. The bold and innovative design borrows quite obviously from the three letter word and the design has a very uncomplicated and ergonomic feel about it.

#9.The Equation Bookshelf  
The Equation Bookshelf was designed by Marcos Breder. You can put together the books that you need immediately between (parentheses) --the focal point of the bookshelf-- and set others between [square brackets] and {braces}. 

#10.Lovely Rita Bookshelf
 The Lovely Rita can live as a single shelf or be repeated endlessly by combining additional units, becoming a bookshelf of any length.

#11.The Neverending bookshelf  
 The Neverending bookshelf was made out of corian by Italian designers Luca Nichetto and Andreoli.

#12.The Staircase Bookshelf  

Tom Sloan at Levitate Architects came up with a neat solution to a storage problem in this London Victorian apartment: He created a ’secret’ staircase, hidden from the main reception room, to access a new loft bedroom lit by roof lights. 

 #.13.The Autumn Bookshelf  
Autum is a shelving system that gives a new take on the standard bookshelf. It is uniquely designed to give the effect of a leafless tree. The bookshelf measures 25Wx100Dx200H in a single unit, but it can be paired with more to make it larger as shown above with 3 units. A wonderful idea by designers David Sanchez & PCM.  

#14.The Rainbow Bookshelf

This is an impressive example of organizing books by color. A great way of changing the whole aspect of a bookshelf using just a little bit of creativity. 

 #15.The Folding Bookshelf  
 The Folding Bookshelves is something really innovative in the bookshelves business, and I really like the idea. It’s very practical because you can arrange the books in an interesting way, as you can see from these pictures. The shelves are made of tough and steady cherry wood, but they possess the lightness of rice paper: they can be laid down, stood up, turned 90 degrees, used horizontally or vertically.

Designer Da-Eun Song had an interesting idea when he designed this shelf that spells out shelf. This shelf has an very original and modern design. You can’t store to much stuff on this shelf, but is a great way to decorate a wall, and put inside only the books and objects your really like. 

 #17. Storyline Shelf 
Storyline Shelf is designed by Frederik Roijé and is an excellent solution to store your books in a modern way. Sound finds a physical identity in the beautifully crafted Storyline bookshelf. By first processing a word into soundwaves, the physical shape is then mirrored in powder-coated steel, using an explicit folding technique. Appropriately enough, the word that inspired this lovely piece was “bliss”

#18. The Rolling Shelf  
The Rolling Shelf has one end made from individual pieces of wood held together by fabric. This new flexible hinge allows you to really create some unique shelving options that are aesthetically interesting. The Rolling Shelf is designed by Catherine Greene. 

#19. Prove Shelves  
Prove Shelves are designed by a German company named Creosa. The prove shelves can be used to display your books, CDs, etc in a really interesting way. The storing space is limited but enough to store the most important things. 

#20. The Cave
The Cave is a shelving unit with integrated nook for reading, for those who want to grab a book and start reading right away. I can say that this idea is ideal for small places, because the nook for reading can save the space used by a chair. A bookcase CAVE provides a private reading space within its form. As a seat hight is just above the floor, CAVE gives a feeling of hiding from others standing around it. Books can be stored on both sides. Therefore, CAVE can also functions as a partition of a room.

#21. The Brace Case
The Brace Case is designed by Ward Huting, and is a shelving unit that uses taut cables to house books, magazines and other flat objects at various angles. The modular system enables the owner to decide how to install the cables. This might be an interesting approach to storing stuff, but it doesn't looks to stable. The Brace Case is fully customizable according to individual room requirement and cable length. The Case is clamped between the floor and the ceiling, and can therefore be tailor-made to any room. Finally the price depends on the specific design and the amount of brace cables.

#22. The Ceiling Bookshelf
The Ceiling Bookshelf is a great idea to store your books if your space is limited. As you can see a place that 99,9% of people don't use can be used in a very practical way to store your books, and save a lot of space in any room. The ceiling bookshelf is an idea that can be applied quite easy. However, in order to get a book, you have to use a chair. Finally lets hope that the ceiling bookshelf will not reserve us unpleasant and unexpected surprises, like a book falling from the ceiling.

#23. Multi-functional shelf
This Multi-functional shelf design by Yoon-Zee Kim is a playful and creative piece of furniture. You can use it as a shelving system or a seating and a desk. This piece of furniture has a modern look, doesn't take to much space and is a very clever idea that looks nice.

 #24. U Bend Shelf  
U Bend Shelf is a great example of an extremely simple design. A single bar that extends from the wall which will support your books in a discrete and stable way, the first of them being used to fix the others. The shelf is available in two high gloss powder coated finishes, black or white, and the price for this shelf is $95. I think that this is a great way to store some books in a small room. 

#25.  Hanging Bookshelf   
Hanging Bookself is an innovative storage design for your books from unal&boler studio. Something that I didn’t saw before. This system cant replace a whole bookcase, but two of three systems of storage like this could be fun to hang somewhere in your home.
