Now, this might be a task for someone handy. We love the idea of these cubist shelves, simply lined with wood that you could find at the local Home Depot. The wonderfully basic design serves as the perfect enclosure for your most colorful and decorative of books. Though this version has been built into the home, it looks like the type of thing you could recreate without having to remodel your whole house — perfect for a transient, space-starved place like NYC.
