There is a great trend towards diagonal bookshelves. Kelly Wearstler designed this built-in beauty in Viceroy in Santa Monica. Simple lines on a diagonal pattern create visual movement and a bold dark color puncuates this book case.
This residential diagonal bookcase is a custom built-in unit where the homeowner can artfully display his beloved hardcovers and paperbacks. The trend is growing too, I have noticed this style of bookshelves in retail locations and even television show sets like Moonlight. A very fun way to store your books!
