If you are on the hunt for a beautiful bookcase that serves some good purpose other than storing your volume, you might want to consider the Snail glass cabinet bookcase from the house of Carpanelli. Combining form with function, the aptly named Snail bookcase doubles as a sideboard and a TV table. The Snail bookcase has been purposely designed in an asymmetric way to add originality to the entire unit. The round cherry wood structure and the spiral inlay made of various types of briarwood speaks of the attention being paid to every single detail. While the back of the Snail glass cabinet bookcase is made of mirror, the asymmetrical shelves are done in transparent crystal.
