Handmade Curved Bookshelf for Your Quirky Books

This $475 handmade curved bookshelf could be the perfect way to showcase the quirky books in your collection and give any room a Dr.Seuss geometry. What do you think?

Designer Scott Blackwell described the shelf: “Very unique, 4 feet bookshelf finished in green enamel and constructed of hardwood plywood from my original design.” AppNewser has more about Copious, the new site hosting the bookshelves:

At the Social Curation Summit in Los Angeles, Copious cofounder Jonathan Ehrlich explained that people visit Google when “I know what I want and I’m looking for an answer.” He added that social media has fostered a new kind of “demand creation.” When you share a product with your Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest friends, you show them something they didn’t know existed.
