Shelf Pod is Both Bibliophile’s and Cat’s Dream House

The Kazuya Morita Architecture Studio in Japan designed this bookshelf-lined Shelf Pod house for a lucky book collector. I know plenty of people who have homes lined with ordinary bookshelves, but this Wonderland-esque design takes it to a whole new level. I’m ready to move in! [via inhabitat]

  1. I had better buy stock in Pledge furniture polish. It’s gotta go up. Seriously though it is a fascinating and interesting. I like it.

  2. I like the whole concept. It is amazing and fascinating. I think that I had better invest in a lot of furniture polish stock.

    1. I recall that “The Paper” would not have so much empty space, since she used stacks of books as room dividers as well.

  4. FABULOUS!!! Ordinary bookshelves are such a poor use of space, and unless you buy a whole matching set, there’s only the books to provide visual cohesiveness. This is fierce. If you’re gonna go built-in, go all the way!!!!!!

  5. not only would one have to figure out how much time needed to dust but where to put every thing given how much storage space the place has.

  6. Ick. I’d go mad living here. Give me clean sleek minimalism any day. Having stuff everywhere like this would be the visual equivalent of living in a noisy train station that’s never silent. Plus squares are ugly to my eyes.

        1. I must reply with the obvious “That, my good sir, is exactly what she said.”  But in all seriousness I’d like this in a sleek cherry wood.  Light wood, to me, looks bad.  The grain makes everything look busier than it could.

  7. i love it!! i always loved the atmosphere of being surrounded by books, it always felt magical. now to make your collection your decor too, you can have that magic right at home too <3 and you'll never be able to complain about lack of storage place XD just remembering where you put it all…..
