What exactly are we looking at? Rather than just neglect her empty, inaccessible stairwell. designer Sallie Trout decided to make it the most interesting part of her house! She built shelves into it and then stacked her books all alongside the walls. This very innovative bookcase was built for a house in Austin, Texas that's dubbed the Jackalope Ranch. The books are made accessible by the use of a bosun’s chair that is safely fastened to a chain hoist that hangs from the ceiling. Talk about using the imagination...in everyday life!
