The Humble Bookshelf: It’s Not Just for Books Anymore
The day of the over-the-door shoe rack is dead (and if we’re being honest, they didn’t work that well to begin with). A bookshelf offers both a beautiful and functional way to display and organize your patent pumps, no matter how many different shapes and sizes you own.

Nothing says host with the most like a chic at-home bar. Whether you’re running low on space, in need of a display for your glassware, or simply looking to show off that top-shelf liquor collection (keep the cheap stuff hidden), a bookshelf is an inventive, space-saving alternative to the typical bar scene.
Mini At-Home Garden
This may be more of a cabinet than a bookshelf, but the same aesthetic is achieved sans doors. Display different plants on alternating levels of the bookshelf and voilà – instant apartment garden.
