Modern Storage Bins pair my adoration for books (see here and here), with savvy design and upcycling. And before you cringe that a beloved hardcover was repurposed as decor, see the designer's statement:
"We use books that, for various reasons, have been discarded by
libraries, book shops, and thrift stores. By the time we get to them,
they have already had booksellers, appraisers, and charitable
organizations comb through their collections. We do not destroy rare or
high-value books. We are often the last stop before the dump or
recycling station. We are book lovers and it is our goal to put books
back on the shelf, in a form that meets our modern needs. Whether
because of a funny book title, a Bin's color palette, or the simple
pleasure of the touch and feel of an old book, we have found that in
this new form, books continue to bring joy into our customer's homes.
In addition, a portion of our proceeds from sales are donated to the
Books for Kids Foundation."
