Bookcases (and sheds)
Given the state of my office bookshelves - two real bookshelf units, augmented with various planks and adapted Habitat shelving braced to the ceiling beams with garden wire - it's embarrassing to see the organisation and tidiness of the many creative designer bookshelf systems. See Incredible Things for 20 Brilliant Bookcases; WebUrbanist for 20 Unusually Brilliant Bookcase and Bookshelf Designs: Creative, Modular and Unique Furniture and 15 (More!) Unusually Brilliant Book Shelving Systems: Creative and Modular Urban Furniture; and the Freshome blog, 30 of the Most Creative Bookshelves Designs.
Yet more, ongoing, at Bookshelf, "The home of interesting bookshelves, bookcases and things that look like them". Bookshelf has a companion site, Shedworking, "the only daily updated guide to the lifestyles of shedworkers and those who work in shedlike atmosphere".
