What a great alternative for a small space, upholstered benches that can be tucked under the table and seat more people, so long as they don't mind snuggling up. These benches can be brought to other areas of the space, too, for 360 degree seating.

Love the idea of a small walk-in library. Books always have a tendency of looking cluttered our it the open, as do the small kick-knacks that you place on the shelves with them. Minimizes cluttered look, making the space seem bigger.

A labrynth made of books...  I would have to start at the begining and read each one until I found my way out.  HAHA...I would love it!

I love the smell of bookstores and libraries. They always smell a little sweet yet musty because of all of the ink and paper that are on their shelves, waiting to be opened and read again and again.
