Blustery fall days offer the perfect excuse to get cozy with a mug of cocoa and a good book. Add in your favorite throw blanket, and you’re set for hours of unplugged entertainment.
Travel back in time through the pages of a historical novel, embark on a virtual trip to another continent, or explore a subject you wish you’d studied in school. Books can take you anywhere you want to go—no passport required.
Whether your book collection contains a few select favorites or rivals that of the local library, bookshelves let you showcase all your volumes in style. Organize by color and layer in decorative accents like candles, photos or vases. Or go old-school alphabetical accented by retro bookends. Shelves are the furniture equivalent of a blank canvas—fill them with your imagination.
Today’s shelves offer so many options beyond traditional vertical wood bookcases. You’ll easily find designs to match your décor style—in sizes to fit your space or the number of books you have.
Here are a few of our favorites:
Metal and glass shelves let your collection shine.
Acrylic shelves keep the focus on your books.
Glass doors protect precious volumes from dust.
A break from horizontal lines adds interest to any collection.
Shorter shelves free up wall space for art.
Anyone who loves to read will tell you there’s no such thing—just not enough bookshelves.
