There’s only so much room on the av­er­age cof­fee ta­ble, but con­sign­ing a beau­ti­ful vol­ume to the book­shelf to make way for the next is in­evitably a painful af­fair. En­ter the pic­ture shelf, which can ex­hibit your books in a much more cre­ative way than sim­ply show­ing their spines. Ikea’s ‘Moss­landa’ shelves (£8.95; ikea.com) are painted to match the wall in the home of in­te­rior de­signer Nina Holst (above), let­ting her books and prints do the talk­ing. Norm Ar­chi­tects’ ver­sion in Kin­folk’s Copen­hagen head­quar­ters (right) is set back in a plas­ter al­cove, cre­at­ing room for other ob­jects un­der­neath the shelves.
