Nowadays shelves no longer serve only as bookshelves, accessories or
decorative items. They have become contemporary and innovative
sculptures in a room.

As a union of functionality and aesthetics, shelves have their own part in the décor of almost all homes and offices, and they are often party walls. The notion of uninteresting simplicity has been lost since they have been given multipurpose function besides their practicality.

Many wonderful wall shelves have been made due to the designers` creativity and they can decorate not only libraries, but all the other rooms in a home. To turn their imaginativeness into reality, there is a wide range of different materials and processing. They can be made of wood, glass, plexiglass, inox, metal, etc.

Depending on the needs and on the available space, they can be positioned high or low, horizontally or vertically, or combined. Diagonal shelves are very common today. They are set in a row of rotated squares in a quite modern way.

Asymmetry is an original expression of many contemporary designers just because of its many applications. A dynamic, but also unique design of these shelves would most certainly impress all your guests, because their shape and vivacity can make a complete impression of a space.

The best effect is achieved when the shelves are used as a library, placed on the whole wall or many walls. For books storing the best solution is to put shelves on the whole wall which can be effective with the irregular designs. It can be very interesting in a limited space.

For more complex space, with more furniture and colour combinations, even shelves can be the best solution. Shelves offer unlimited possibilities for the expressiveness in space.

As a necessary item, they will surely find some space at your home, and it is up to you to decide whether you need a simple shelf or an unusual one, an original or a decorative shelf, a shelf on the whole wall or just on a part of it. And it may become a real work of art in which you are going to enjoy.
