Modern Minimalism

Sleek and contemporary home library design

The current trend in design asks for sleek lines with well-defined edges and interiors that are both futuristic and ergonomic at the same time.

They no longer need to occupy an entire room on their own and can fit in pretty much anywhere- from the attic to a corridor that connects two different rooms.
