Don’t read and climb

What is it about the pairing of stairs and bookcases that produces some of the most spectacular interiors? I have been pinning a ton of sculptural staircases lately and noticed that some of the most interesting examples incorporate bookcases. It’s not just found spaces and using the natural void of the step, there’s more ingenuity than that. Here are some of the more special examples I’ve found.
