Cue the sad trombone (wah, wah, waaaaaaah), but I couldn't help myself with the pun. We love this cool bookshelf from young designer Justin Southey. You can store books in the belly of the whale and then swim him around the room on the casters.

Southey is a designer and illustrator living in South Africa. His nautical bookshelf doesn't currently appear to be available for purchase, but we can dream, can't we? The whale is a bit leviathan, but since it can be moved around its size might pose fewer problems.
