In our last few homes we have ended up with a carefully placed stack or row of books on the floor. Often in response to a lack of bookshelf storage, we have begun to continue the trend simply because we like how it looks! Here are some images of deliberately unshelved books that we think are pretty charming.
• 1Books stacked in a fireplace, from Apartment Therapy post Book Storage Solutions: Domino on Automatism
• 2 The most recent incarnation of our stacks and rows of books on the floor. Love the clean line at the bottom with a huge contrast of heights at the top.
• 3 Stacks of books in Orla Kiely's office, seen here on Apartment Therapy.
• 4 ModFruGal's black walled dining room, punctuated with small stacks of colorful books, seen on Apartment Therapy here.
