I love it in this photo, actually, although I can see what you mean--a little like standing on top of a very tall building and feeling the urge to jump.

My gripe with this bookshelf--and y'all are welcome to think I'm petty and out of touch--is my gripe with so much design: who owns books that are all the same shape and size?

Eileen said...

Nope. It's not for me. I think it's the Arnold Horshack of bookshelves, akwardly calling too much attention to itself.

unless all your books are the same height and depth, not to mention color coordinated, this thing may end up looking like a hot mess.

Yikes, I have to agree with you there.
The whole thing's just precarious.
Cheers, Alcira

Even scarier would be to stand on the folding chairs in order to reach the top 'shelf.'

Snark-producing fall.

love that bookshelf, but i always wonder if people who have color coordinated books, actually read.

alas, I've got one in my bedroom: My husband said: I've always wanted it (talk about sad childhood), and you chose tyrannically every single element in the house, so you owe me that.
So I had to budge. Sigh... it's not THAT bad, but I wish I could get rid of it.
here's the offender:
