OFF THE WALL
How crazy is this?! Russian-born London-based architect Andrei Saltykov created this one-of-a-kind bookshelf based on a map of the United States. Claiming it was a better choice than Britain or Russia because it was more evenly segmented (and had more straight lines!) he decided to go the extra mile and use miniature string lights to indicate the location of the capital in each state. Amazing!
This has got my creative juices flowing . . . wouldn't it be cool to make a version with your home state? Read more about Saltykov and his project at Dwell here.
p.s. He put Alaska in his bathroom! Love it!
