Books as Furniture . . .

{Domino via}

So, I am pretty obsessed with books! I love to read and recently I switched over to a Kindle - I really like the convenience but I do so miss the books themselves! I think its also because books add so much warmth and personality to an interior. Design books, however, are a necessity for me - I just can't give those up! But how about re-purposing old books! I just loved these ideas below. . .  

There is something so lovely and relaxed about this! {via}

A book store check out counter made of books - brilliant! {via}

Who needs a bench at the foot of the bed?! {via}

This book column is a true piece of art - wow! {via}

Piece of marble + pile of books = a great entry table. Although I am not sure how you keep it from toppling over if bumped - I am very clumsy! {via}

So, not really furniture but I adore this idea - especially since the smaller paper back books are so hard to style in a chic way! {via}

I like it, but how do you keep them from falling over? I'm also a big fan of stacking vertically next to horizontally.
