I grew up in a house where books and reading were strongly encouraged by my parents who prolifically brought and read everything from novels , to vintage literature and reference books . Its a pastime that I and my siblings adore , with each of us owning our own mini librarys and often stealing books from my parents collections.

But when you have such beautiful books it almost seems a shame to put them into a booring everyday bookshelf which is why I am crazy for the pictured Book Worm book shelf by Kartell designed by Ron Arad . The shelf is whimsical , beautiful and practical keeping your books within reach but out of the dusty realms of the ever boring book shelf .
