Bookshelf Heaven: Awesome Containers For Books, Home Libraries, Jacob's Ladder, and Incredible Book Sculptures...
I've featured some of these incredible bookshelves and book sculptures before. Here, they're together in one collection. Let your imagination run wild!
"Not quite "Stairways to Heaven", but totally unique and extremely stylish structures nonetheless. There are other compilations of unique shelf designs, as we are in no way alone in liking visually outstanding and effective ideas in interior design - but bookshelves hold a special place in our hearts... oh, such a special place! First of all, they contain books, a deeply comforting amount of books that we will never be able to read in its entirety in our lifetimes."
"Second, it is one of the very first desires of human spirit to climb the "stairs" and reach the unattainable (or lost) kind of Paradise, so called "inner peace" - starting all the way from Tower of Babel, and continuing through Jacob's Ladder to our current fascination with "skyscrapers": in every case, there is a sort of stepped structure (filled with knowledge at every level) which ultimately leads to inner satisfaction, or so the story goes. The "stairs and ladders" part of this sentiment we will cover in the next article, but today we'll see some lovely stacked bookshelves and some inspiring home library set ups."
