Urban Edition’s design challenge: provide a design-savvy space to store a seemingly endless book collection. The solution: stylish yet snug bookshelves made from Maple veneered ApplePly®. Covering two walls of the Flatiron Apartment, the shelves surround the doorway to form “a strong, three dimensional vertical wall surface with lots of visual interest,” says Bill Powell, the marketing manager of States Industries, LLC. “The entire project has a contemporary Northern European look based on simple, natural, environmentally friendly materials.” In other words, a perfect space to snuggle up with a good book.
