Functional Informational Library Desk created with books. I can't imagine there isn't a book in that desk I want to read. I can see uses for a few old or damaged books but these look like they're in pretty good shape.
Rows of matching Billy bookcases from Ikea work well here. Consider that the books and accessories offer the pop while the bookcases provide the background. (contemporary living room by Smith & Vansant Architects PC)
