This quirky must-have serves as a great conversation piece that is perfect for the living room. Aside from using it to organize your things, it can also serve as a wonderful piece that can liven up an empty corner at home.

Read Your Book Case by Eva Alessandrini and Roberto Saporiti

A piece made by Italian furniture and interior design company, Saporiti, this wooden shelf plays around the placement of the shelves within the box so they can form the phrase "Read Your Book Case." It would be fun to see how you will place your books to further define the hidden message. Once it's filled with books, ask friends and guests if they can spot the secret message within the shelf.
