Human beings come to love books right from their early childhood. The stories that they tell and the adventures they take us on make us hold them close to our hearts, and take them into our beds to relax us off into dreamland. We’ve composed this set of unique wall shelves and book cases by the bedside which allow us to do just that. From a few well placed shelves to story filled headboards. From book nooks to sleeping in an entire home library, this article has got the whole spectrum of bedtime reading storage for book lovers who love to sleep beside their beloved books.

This really is a headboard feature wall suited to book lovers. With ten LED-lit cubby holes, suited perfectly to displaying book stacks, this is a thing of beauty and practicality. Though, maybe those higher out-of-reach shelves should be just for those out-of-rotation old books that you just can’t seem to part with. A tangle of bedroom pendant lights provide the bedtime reading light here, along with a pair of Vibia Slim 0920 pendants over the bedside units.

Not many of us have a sprawling bedroom of these proportions but if we did we’d sure like to fill it with a home library like this one. One entire wall has been filled top to bottom with bespoke shelving. An additional unit, to hold even more books, runs behind the headboard. This low-level console acts as a functional device to section the sleep space off from the walkway to the library area.
Another home library style bedroom but this time one of more modest proportions. Many of us could make this type of layout work in our bedrooms – though we might have to sacrifice our wardrobes!

An enormous uniform layout of white boxes make up this bedroom library wall. A long desk has been built into this arrangement, where books can be studied. A couple of the cubes have been populated with display pieces, like colourful decorative vases and the Eames Bird replica. Three cupboards are concealed behind sliding doors, one of which holds a TV monitor that can be viewed from the bed when the owner is not in the mood for reading one of their many books!
The symmetrical roof-shaped canopy over this bed has made playful use of the rooms sloped ceiling angle, exaggerating it rather than trying to disguise it. The resulting triangular void would have been wasted space if not filled with this jaunty little bookcase. The bed resides inside of the cosy house-shaped den surrounded with more accessible book shelving options.
