This DIY modern shelf design cleverly offers a stylish alternative to the conventional rectangle shape. This chic shelf features a curved seashell shape that is ideal for housing a variety of diversely shaped books with the various compartments.

Eric J. Wilhelm put together this bookshelf with a design inspired by nautilus sea creatures. The small shelf features a rounded design with a variety of chambers that copy the aesthetic of the shell of a nautilus. Within each of these compartments is room to stash a variety of books keeping different subjects organized. The books are also organized on a diagonal giving a unique appearance. According to Wilhelm, "This nautilus-inspired bookshelf isn't meant to be efficient or to pack books neatly, it's about willingly, enthusiastically accepting the chaos that is kids books"
