Oh my gosh! Those wonky, bendy bookshelves are oh SO Alice in Wonderland! Brilliant!

Chachic said...

I want one of those twisty bookshelves!

Becky said...

Yea, I don't know that I'll be putting coffin bookshelves up in my house anytime soon. :) I definitely agree about the other fun looking shelves though!

Bonnie said...

Cute and funky!

KIKA said...

Andi: Yes aren't they cool? I thought of Dr. Seuss when I first saw them

Chachic: same here!

Becky: LoL seriously, I don't think I'd like a coffin sitting in my living room

Bonnie: :) very funky

Tara said...

I think the coffin would make a great coffee table. LOL. Think of the conversations that would start. Plus, your guests may get so uncomfortable, they may leave early! (YEA!)

I wouldn't mind a twisty shelf. Just caust it funky.

KIKA said...

Tara: LOL my goodness woman I like the way you think. I can only imagine saying to unwanted guests "You sure you don't want to come in and stay? eat some tea and crumpits on that coffin there sitting in the middle of my living room?" hehe

Rebs: Thanks :) amazing what people come up with

I love these bookshelves--not that I would actually have them in my house. But I would love to see them work in someone else's style. They remind me of Alice in Wonderland, or even some Neil Gaiman books--just sort of topsy-turvy and, in the right color, sort of grotesque!

KIKA said...

Holly: thanks Holly for the reward you're so sweet

Kristie: LOL true they do have this kind of dark macabre feel to it---kind of like a fun house
