The vertical lines of this built-in shelf is a clever continuation from its ceiling beams. Its linear design also enhances the ceiling height. The staggered height of the shelves is another design element. Design by Distinctidentity.
Here's a clever use of the tall and narrow space by both sides of the window. The shelves are built right up to the ceiling to maximise storage, and they create a sense of symmetry as well, in the room. Design by Frame Interior.
More for displaying decorative objects than for storage, these open display shelves are in the same colour as their background, so the items on them will stand out more. Design by Free Space Intent.
This unusual shelf takes up a corner instead of one wall, to create a cosy reading corner in this home. The design has been customised to fit the homeowner's book collection – judging by the shorter shelves at the top for comics, and taller shelves below for larger, more decorative items. Design by The Association.

'X' marks the spot! Instead of regular horizontal lines, this bookshelf (built on the bay window seat) has a 'X' in the middle, which is even more obvious backlit by the light coming in from the window. Design by Project File.
