my idea for the floorshelf came accidentally as I was redecorating my old apartment in san francisco. looking to replace my clunky ikea bookshelf for one with a smaller footprint, i was in between and sans bookshelf for a couple of days. i had stacked all of my books and magazines on the floor, and grew to quite like the look of the stacks, bare and minimalist just as it was.
want to stack your own floorshelf? here are a few tips:
- play with horizontal and vertical stacks and creating different heights
- try to keep a light and neutral spin color scheme. if a cover is too distracting (ie the orange hardcover below), consider turning it around
- break it up and get creative! if you need room for a particular collection, like room for my micro records collection, play around and make it work!
