Ladder shelving is exactly what it sounds like: shelving which resembles the steps on a ladder. It's a great solution for areas which lack space, but which are perfect to use as decorative feature.
Many units come both as corner and regular units so you can mix and match them to make the best use of the available space. Consider, as an example, adding ladder shelving to both corners of the fireplace wall. The effect will be to soften the impact of the fireplace, giving a sense of symmetry and balance.
The leaning bookcase has become commonplace in many homes seeking that modern feel. Quite simply, it is just a bookcase but with a distinct crick in its design that almost looks like a ladder. Almost like the ladder found in libraries of old but instead used to shelve books. The leaning bookcase is usually secured directly to the wall and is set up to make the most of limited shelf space.
