Here’s a great idea for anyone who loves books and doesn’t have enough apartment space or a Kindle: a “secret staircase” made of English oak, lined with books left, right and center, leading to a loft bedroom in a Victorian 1898 apartments block

70m2 apartment was remodeled by London-based Levitate Architects, who created “a new bedroom level and increasing the floor area of the flat by approximately one third.” The staircase is both the way to access the bedroom and a perfect place to store books, movies or CDs. “With a skylight above lighting the staircase, it becomes the perfect place to stop and browse a tome,” says Levitate’s Tim Sloan, who also pointed out the unique structure of each step, allowing for anyone to comfortably sit down while picking a book.

With space being at such a premium in crowded cities, an upstart young designer has devised a bookcase that transforms into a bed. Looking like a large wall jigsaw puzzle, the mattress stands upright in four sections, surrounding five storage shelves which are suspended in mid-air by a wall mounted frame. When the mattress sections are placed on the floor they slot together to form the bed.

Morbid, maybe, but sustainable as well: this combination wooden bookcase-and-coffin idea takes the concept of eco-friendly “cradle-to-grave” and applies it with dark literal humor.

The inverted bookshelf

The inverted bookshelf turns a bit of your living room upside down as it hangs all of the books from the bottom instead of supporting them from below. It’s a satisfying optical trick and doesn’t damage any of the books. In fact, you can take books in and out of it whenever you want.

Balancing Books

Most things we attach to our walls are fixed, not fluid, and cannot be easily moved or changed. It is the things within our bookcases, on top of our shelves and so forth that are the mobile parts – not the furnishings, fixtures and furniture. This balancing bookshelf is a notable exception to the rule
