Everyone loves the aesthetic of an unorganised pile of books. The Once Upon a Time bookshelf, by Fabio Vinella, is just that, but certainly much better looking.
Once Upon a Time, a beautifully built walnut bookshelf, features a useful platform that can be home to a reading lamp, or made into a seat if you enjoy lounging amongst your sacred tomes.
The only drawback (besides costing $US4200), is that certain slots only fit certain sized books, so plan accordingly. [Fabio Vinella via Design Milk]
