Design Sleuth: Sapien Bookcase Tower

August 22, 2012

Spotted in the colorful pom-pommed room of Cleo, daughter of Aussie designer and artist Rachel Castle: the Sapien Bookcase.

We're big proponents of investing in grown-up pieces of furniture for children (think of it as eco-friendly, as you don't have to upgrade as they grow). Designed by Bruno Reinaldi, the Sapien Bookcase stores books vertically and is ideal for space-challenged rooms. See below for details.
