Library: The Small Space Book Lover's Dream Space

Every bibliophile dreams of having a reading room to get away and really sink into a good read. But what if you live in a small space where every square foot counts and you can't set aside a dedicated area for reading? Aussie design student Guy Eddington tackled the problem by creating a multi-functional solution which combines storage, lighting and seating all into one svelte piece.Imagine a large IKEA shelving unit with some of the central shelf spaces removed, a circular skylight cut open ontop with overhead lamp for illumination and a nice padded daybed-style seating area within and then you've pretty much got an image of the Library, as conceived by Guy Eddington. There's even a small shelf in front to place a snack or cuppa while you enjoy settling down with the next great American novel, with books or whatever you'd like to surround yourself with literally in arm's reach. Love the space efficient idea and now wonder how easy (or difficult) it would be to DIY modify existing off-the-shelf shelving in similar fashion.
