Leaning & Ladder Bookcases
1. Ladder book shelves can be somewhat reminiscent of garden trellises with their slender, vertical, wall-clinging designs. It's a pleasantly casual, organic, and open style that's well complemented by plants and flowers.
2. Leaning ladder bookcases are terrifically versatile from a decorator's perspective. Equally at ease in a minimalist loft or a cottage-style living room, a leaning ladder bookcase is one that you can display in virtually any setting.
3. A ladder-style bookshelf needn't be used for storing books. As an etagere, its open, tiered shelves make charming platforms for small ornaments, collectibles, framed photos, candles, and other accessories.
