While the long bookshelf moves from side to side, the handle part doesn’t. Choose a small bookshelf and pull the bar down, and it comes down on the desk. So here you can be lazy again, take and put back the books while you’re sitting at the desk.

The shelf has always been essential to every interior. As time has marched on, the styles of shelfs and storage-systems may have been transformed, but their nature still remains the same. This furniture generates an object with a new spirit, which merges with our modern requirements, it allows a flexible use of space. A shelf let transform a sculpture, just out of two different parts.

Bargain bins outside Pages Bookstore, on St-Jacques, across from Lionel Groulx metro. The cozy neighbourhood second-hand bookstore also features comfy - if scruffy - armchairs, wireless Internet, a coffee bar, a back-alley terrace of sorts, and performances by local musicians in the evenings.

Yes, these are just planks of painted plywood nailed to the supports for the loft above. They create perfect cubby spaces to store books, baskets and even small lights. Since we're in California, it would probably be a good idea to secure everything in place so it doesn't shake right off.

Walker's house was constructed specifically to accommodate his massive library. To create the space, which was constructed in 2002, Walker and architect Mark Finlay first built a 7-foot-long model. Then they used miniature cameras to help visualize what it would be like to move around inside. In a conscious nod to M. C. Escher (whose graphics are echoed in the wood tiling), the labyrinthine platforms seem to float in space, an illusion amplified by the glass-paneled bridges connecting the platforms. Walker commissioned decorative etched glass, dynamic lighting, and even a custom soundtrack that sets the tone for the cerebral adventures hidden in this cabinet of curiosities. "I said to the architect, 'Think of it as a theater, from a lighting and engineering standpoint,'" Walker says. "But it's not a performance space. It's an engagement space."Photos Andrew Moore.

A rusty and bent nail doesn’t have any reason for being. But the nails begin to inform me about their valuable being widely as soon as the book is laid on the useless nails. When they’ve met their trunk called the book, they were able to get a significant life force as arms and legs of our body after all.

A spectacular bookcase is hand-carved with angels or cherubs, devils, monks, griffins and a lion head. The artistry in solid walnut is in high relief, masterfully carved with bold and energetic strokes and vivid imagery. There is slight wear to the original finish from about 1890, and the warm patina is wonderful. This antique furniture is actually 3 separate stacking pieces for easy handling. Old and wavy glass in the doors appears original, inside, carved shelves are adjustable on wooden supports. Traditional European Renaissance style craftsmanship is evident all over this heroic bookcase or display cabinet. Measurements are 44" wide, 26" deep and 8' 10" tall.

The inverted bookshelf turns a bit of 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. In fact, you can take books in and out of it whenever you want.
