Top 10:  Shelves And Shelving

I recall an infomercial a few years back for a little plastic triangle that stuck in a corner, between two walls, to make a small corner shelf. I don’t remember the exact name of the product, but I do remember that the commercial exhausted all the obvious self/shelf puns: “shelf esteem,” “shelf confidence,” “shelf defense,” “shelf-employed,” etc., etc. So I’ll forgo the obvious opportunities this topic offers for shelf-referential humor and just get down to business.

  1. It seems that everyone here like the sad bookshelf ^^. It looks definitely sad.

    I also like the circular bookshelf. I think it’s suitable for design magazine as well.

  2. These are perfect bookshelves for different personalities of a bookworm. I like the resourcefulness of numbers 10, 9 and 5, the interesting design of number 8 and the impressive structure of number 5. It matches on every room. Great ideas!
