A Tabletop Bookcase for Small Spaces

January 3, 2014

Currently coveting: Book/Shop owner Erik Heywood’s tabletop bookshelves inspired by Bruno Mathsson’s Book Crib, but designed to pack flat, slotting together for an instant set up. 

The shelves are available in natural birch, walnut ply, and more recently, in white corian. Heywood suggests using them as either a single shelf or in a continuous row, holding everything from paperbacks to art books and even LPs.

N.B. Be sure to visit our post on the Oakland, CA, shop, The New Bookstore Model: Book/Shop and Ask the Expert: Erik Heywood Talks Books.
