The Isabel Quiroga Storyteller shelf is a whimsical bookshelf made of recycled and reused tables. Designer Isabel Quiroga believes that, "Like the books [that] tell stories so would the tables if they could." The ornate, antique tables are sawn in the middle, stacked on top of each other and painted.

Not only is the Isabel Quiroga Storyteller shelf environmentally friendly, it’s also a study on the history of furniture. Dutch-based Quiroga is concerned with the functionality of design, reinterpreting original applications and creating new roles for objects.
