Bringing Life To The Bookcase

But at a time when more people want something unique, different and interesting in their homes a bookcase can also double up as a design feature. No longer are the restricted to the same tired formula, bookcases now come in a variety of shapes and sizes, incorporating new ideas and becoming something to stand out screaming ‘look at me’ in your home.

The Cave

When I am reading a book I like to feel detached from the outside world, though most of the time I can never get away from the distractions of the home. Something always disturbs me in and takes me out of the little imagination cave I build myself when trying to engross myself within a book. The Cave bookcase actually provides a place where you can literally climb into the books you have, a seating area carved out in the bookcase where you immerse yourself into the book you are reading.

The Expanding Bookcase

With the expanding bookcase that won’t be a problem, as soon as it looks as if you have run out of room the bookcase simply starts to expand and grow. The expanding bookshelf literally uses the idea of having so many books your bookshelf will burst. The expanding bookcase makes an excellent design piece which will surely grab people’s attention.
