The Mimic Cube from Crate and Barrel is another environmentally friendly option. Low emission poplar woods are used and the cubes can be stacked to a desired height. A glass topper adds a look of elegance to this simple and unique design.
Bookcases are adaptable pieces of furniture as they're not only perfectly designed for holding books, but also look good when displayed with other accessories like photographs of the family or ornaments collected and received over the years.
Books first appeared in the world as scrolls. These scrolls were usually inscribed by hand and so their production was quite costly. Religious institutions, libraries and ancient universities prized the books highly. These necessitated the need for specialized containers or boxes which were easily accessible for easy referencing. Initially the shelved containers were much deeper and separated into many compartments for easier access. The shelving was usually hidden away in closets that blended with the home decor or in private study rooms.
