From a Circular Bookshelf to another with a bench, meet fifteen modern 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 Bookman

The Bookman is a bookshelf in the shape of a man. This highly decorative piece of furniture --and sculpture-- was designed by East Anglian artist Kazmierz Szmauz, who also designed similar pieces such as the CDMan, the DVDMan and Videoman. The Bookman holds about 100 books.


6
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.


7
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.


8
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.


9
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.


10
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}.


11
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.


12
The Neverending Bookshelf

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


13
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.


14
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.


15
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.
