James' Shelf

Today's Shelf is James' !
Because he is a bit of a nutcase and can't do everything like everybody else, he decided to re-draw his shelf (well, desk) in Illustrator. Which is crazy, but look at the result ! This is amazingly detailled.
Here is a close-up :

James is a graphic designer and currently works for TF1News. So, as you can see, he has a big computer and lots of graphic design books. (And Lord Of The Rings, Back to the Future, Blade Runner and Mad Max. And about FOUR external hard drives. This CLEARLY is a guy's desk)

Christin's Shelf

Hi everybody !
Today's shelf is Christin's, from Chicago (and sometimes NY). She works for a non-profit organization where she crunches numbers. So, she does a lot of math at work, and reading is a nice contrast to that. She has a little built in shelf that separates the kitchen from the dining room. (that's such a good idea !). It holds about half her books, which she holds pretty dear. Notice the little porcelain doves ? Cute, right ?
Learn more about Christin on her blog !

Avi's Shelf

Today's shelf is Avi's. He's currently working on his thesis about war (no kidding), and lives in a cute and rather small studio in Paris. His flat is filled with books, so to keep a livable space the bookshelf is directly IN the wall, under the roof. Clever !


Tan's Shelf

Happy new year everyone !
Let's kick-start with a really cool shelf : Tan's shoes shelf. I've always wanted to put my shoes in some kind of display, instead of a big pile hidden in some cupboard. Well, Tan did it and it rocks.
