Is your reading collection feeling a bit drab or in need of a visual boost? A new bookshelf may be exactly what your unique library of books needs. We have picked out some of our favorite bookshelves and bookcases to tie your whole room together while giving you all of the storage you need.

Some of these picks are playful and fun additions that will help your favorite titles get the attention they deserve—including these illusive “floating” bookshelves and this fun “now reading” display that will keep you motivated to settle down for a night of reading. Other pieces are more geared towards tying together a particular aesthetic you have already established in your home, whether it's mid-century modern or contemporary.

If you need more books to fill up your brand-new bookshelf, you can always find your next favorite art and design read on at My Modern Met Store or via My Modern Met’s Bookshop. And once you pick the perfect bookshelf and books for your space, be sure to check out My Modern Met's other furniture recommendations—including light fixtures and lamps, coffee tables and end tables, and creative products for your home office.
