Fresh, sleek and sophisticated are all great buzzwords when discussing the leaning bookcase. Made of many different types of materials from wood to aluminum, the possibilities and variations are endless. It will not be difficult to find the perfect match for any home decor. Some of the bookcases even in come in multiple sets with gallery-style shelves rather than the old boring standard upright bookcases. These can be affixed together or you can let them stand alone.
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!
Why are ladder shelves called as such? It is because they look like conventional movable construction ladders. It is based off a pyramid design with a number of level trays that are adhered to the front legs, stepping up to the top of the shelf hence the name 'ladder shelves'.
