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.
Buy furniture off the shelf or have it custom made to fit any sized nook or cranny. It's not necessary to have them lining the walls as if in a library as this will only make a room looked cramped, but a case or two strategically placed will give a distinctive look and can be a great feature in any room.
You might think a bookcase is a bookcase and what is the big deal? It's not until you start to search for one for your home you'll soon realize there are actually many various kinds available. They come in all kinds of solid woods from oak, pine and beech still in their natural state, or waxed or varnished in a darker hue, to painted white or something brighter for a real funky style. Tall, short, wide and thin, with or without drawers and cupboards, the range is huge and it won't take long to find a solution to your storage and display needs.
Virtually every home I have gone to uses some kind of bookcases, and this does not depend on whether they collect books or not. Used effectively in terms of space, orientation and utilization they can surely look like works of art. You can make them as glamorous and as unique as your imagination can allow. Bookcases have a long history and for any house, they have become such standard pieces that you barely notice them. Most people are able to blend them with the existing home decor.
