This standing bookshelf design by Nayef Francis has aptly been named 'Library,' much like the books you find on rotating displays in an actual library. The hybrid shelf and table has a flat wooden surface with ample room to place a beverage or a book, as well as plenty of storage space for a number of small books beneath that.

Francis designed a number of different table shapes in this style, including some that are taller as well as a few that are more low-laying. If you know someone who always has a few books on rotation, this unique table design is bound to be a fit for their home. This is especially true since the open-sided shelves put the spines of books on display.
