In most cases, a leaning bookcase is presented in a sense that it looks like a ladder with cascading layers. One would have the advantage of having multiple layers of equal space of which they could determine the contents of each. These are most often made of wood and are presented in various sizes. One can have the option to place other items apart from books in the excess space of this cascading presentation. There is always the option to place picture frames or small ornamental objects or items on top or on the surface of the bookcase.
Whatever you decide, keep in mind that ladder shelves are freestanding, so you can always move them around as your room design evolves.
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.
