Floating bookcases are esthetically appealing and will be appreciated by anyone that enters your home. They are two different kinds of floating bookcases. One is hung up on the wall above the ground giving it the appearance that is floating. The second is designed so that once the books are stacked the shelving sort of disappears making the books appear to be floating in thin air. These are good for small spaces as they are less obvious and make the room seem larger.
The invention of the printing press by Johannes Gutenberg in 1440 made books more common. The need for their storage also become more pronounced. The oldest shelves in existence are believed to be in the Bodleian Library at Oxford University, they have been in place since the end of the 16th century. What surprises me though is the fact that the initial designs made then have remained till today, and are used as a standard for the design of the modern bookcases.
Creating small vignettes, will add interest, by combining special ornaments and decorative items you use throughout the year; remember to keep the scale in proportion to the pieces you want to highlight. A cube-type display shelf affords you smaller vignettes, and you can place some foam board cut to the exact size of the cube, covered with fabric or wrapping paper, to enhance your display. To create small scenes within your bookcase, you can paint small boxes that fit your shelves, leaving the open end of the box facing the outside of your case, so your special scene is easily viewed.
