Home Styling for the Bibliophile

Readers and collectors are probably familiar with having too many books and not enough space to store them, leading to unsightly clutter on the shelves. With this guide, step away from the conventional bookcase and up the ante with alternative book storage and display options:

 

1. Bookcase

The Asolo bookcase’s geometric lines adds simplistic elegance to any room, with a customizable number of tiers to suit your needs.

 

Choosing the correct bookcase design allows you to showcase your favourite titles while providing an interesting visual point in your home. Unique silhouettes and materials can be eye-catching, and injects a touch of personality into your reading space.

 

2. End Table

Commune’s Dualtone end table employs solid American oak and walnut for the top and legs for a distinctly unique twist on the conventional end table.

 

Incorporate accent pieces such as end tables into your home to ace the practicality and style departments simultaneously. End tables provide a stylish solution to leaving reads-in-progress next to your favourite lounging spot, and has ample room for a mug or two as well.

 

3. Console

The Flint console table’s mid-century appeal is a stellar example of understated style and practicality.

 

Console tables are perfect places to store books among other small items. Select options that have plenty of internal space for smart storage, or shelving for your paperbacks. Depending on where you place them, consoles are fairly adaptable pieces that can suit most surface furniture needs.

 

4. Coffee Table

The Bowen coffee table boasts drawers accessible from either side, giving you more room and access to stow your favourites. Solid American walnut coupled with organic curves exude vintage softness.

 

The perfect centrepiece for your living room, a coffee table acts as a readily accessible display spot for your favourite books to kick start any conversation. Functionality is a natural feature with coffee tables, as additional storage slots or shelving are ideal spots for stowing newspapers, magazines, and the like.

 

5. Nightstand

Commune’s Crimson nightstand is a stylish matrimony of both form and functionality, with tilted legs that lend the piece an eclectic touch.

 

Often find yourself reading in bed just before catching some shuteye? Invest in a nightstand that’ll elevate your bedroom to the next level while making sure your favourite book is always within arms reach. Wood pieces can also give your room a classically cosy feel while promising sturdiness and durability.
