Opus Oak Ladder Shelves - This particular ladder shelf has a slightly different look to the standard shelf, it is similar to an 'S' turned on its side. It has a trendy modern appeal for younger people, but is a little on the expensive side costing over $200 each. The opus shelf has 7 shelves and a height/width of 59" x 20", this retro looking robust oak shelf would make a good addition to any sleek interior.
Apart from books and other reading materials, one can place other items in their leaning bookcase. Perhaps to use it as a medium for placing their collection of trinkets which they would like to display in their homes for guests to see. This is something which can turn from a regular utility shelf to a wonderful conversational piece. It is no surprise that a lot of people are pleasantly amused with this kind of bookcase. It is something which can not be considered as conventional but is regarded as something modern and functional regardless of the type of room it is placed in.
If you have the space, you might want to consider buying 2 identical ladders. You can buy long planks of wood for the shelves, and create a whole system. To really add flair, have the ends of the planks extend past the ladders on both ends. Have the planks cut so that the bottom plank is the longest, and then shorter and shorter. The end effect will look like a huge ladder!
