Are your bookshelves overflowing with titles that you can’t seem to comb through and find what you need? Or perhaps you have a few open spots on your shelves and you’re looking for ways to make them more visually appealing. There are different ways to organize your books, add decor, or even invest in a new bookshelf to change the look of a room. At Chicago Living, we offer modern home furnishings like bookshelves in a variety of styles to fit your lifestyle. We also offer a variety of trendy home decor to add interest to your shelves and the walls of your home.
If you own what is basically your own personal library, you need to find a way to organize your titles in a way that works for you. This doesn’t necessarily mean creating a Dewey Decimal System to find your favorite cookbook, but your books should have some sort of order that is either visually appealing or is organized logically — or perhaps both! Ways that you can organize your books include:
When your shelves are packed tightly, it helps to have modern home furnishings that offer a lot of shelving and provide adequate support for your collection. The Gaines Bookshelf is perfect for storing your personal library while remaining sleek and trendy. The glass shelves create a minimal look, while the stainless steel bars of the frame give it an industrial, modern look. Organize your book collection any way you like on this striking bookshelf.
For a more modern look, keep the items on your bookshelf limited. The sleek, minimal look lends itself to highlighting statement pieces — whether it’s a first edition novel, an antique vase, or even the bookshelf itself. The key is to leave shelves sparse in order to make each shelf a point of focus for decorations, book collections, plants, or the structure of the shelves.
The Ramble Bookshelf is perfect for this modern style of organization. The shelf is built to create a fluid sense of movement as you follow its design from one shelf to the next. The shelves are supported by polished steel that also provides a metallic sheen and point of interest. The winding shelves are available in two finishes: white or a walnut-grained veneer. The sturdy fiberboard of this bookshelf can hold your favorite novels, accent pieces, and delicate air plants or succulents for a modern, minimal look.
If you’re a person who’s looking to add a playful look to your otherwise utilitarian shelving, try updating your bookshelf to a unique and fun design. The Whim Large Table or Bookshelf features a variety of unique sizes and shapes of shelving. The entirely organic shapes provide cubbies for different book collections, decorations, and memorabilia.
Choose from three different colors when you add this statement piece to your living room or office. The white color is classic and will go with almost any style of furniture. Choose the bright green or orange if you’re looking to add some additional playfulness to your room.
Whether you’re looking to organize your heaps of books, wanting to create a well-designed and striking space, or you’d rather make your bookshelf the statement piece itself, Chicago Living has everything you need. Choose from a variety of modern home furnishings to organize your shelves and create conversation in your home.
