Mammut Shelves

The first time we saw these, we couldn't figure out what they were. In fact, we assumed they were part of an art installation, until we realized that they were actually shelves next to a piece of art, holding artist statement brochures. But we never forgot them, and now that we are thinking about nursery design, we think these simple Ikea shelves might be an ingenious way to organize a child's board books.

We see them mounted low on the wall, perhaps a flock of them together, within easy reach of a toddler. Each shelf supports 15lbs of whatever you stack on them, and at just $6.99 each these fun Ikea shelves are very affordable.
