Special Nonexistent Furniture

1. Mantel: Dress your mantel with stacked books, whether varied and interspersed with objects or lined up next to each other.
2. Color Theme: Transform a bookshelf into an artful masterpiece by color blocking your books. Use both hard- and soft-covered books for textural appeal.
3. Display Stand: Books layered on a coffee table, end table, or at the foot of your bed, add depth, while highlighting a favorite accent, like a clock.
4. Covers: Doll-up damaged or dull books by wrapping them in craft paper and adding labels to the spines.
5. Open Shelving: Bring modern appeal into your space with books displayed on floating shelves. It saves you floor space, too!
