Wednesday Wants: Bookshelf lamps

lili lite

You can keep your Kindle: I've got a serious obsession with books. Real books. And the reason for this is simple: the glory of a bookshelf. A bookshelf can be a thing of genuine beauty with endless design possibilities. A bookshelf needn't just be a Billy book case, oh no.  Designers have long been building bookshelves into small nooks and crannies, under stairs and over stairs, into tables and even chairs. But my current lust-have are these glorious, multi-functional bookshelf lamps:

The LiliLite (199 EUR) is an all in one reading solution: a shelf, place-keeper AND a reading light:


Or for something simpler - and equally lovely - take a look at this marvellous Book Rest Lamp (£37 on Amazon) from Suck UK:


For something a little more traditional, how about a Lighting Libri by Adriano Design for allê (£332 from Bouf)


And finally, take a look at this industrial pipe bookshelf with lamp from Stella Bleu ($249 on Etsy)


I challenge anyone to make a Kindle light feature as glorious as these.....
