Private Place

Probably the most vexing dilemma facing studio dwellers is the lack of a bedroom door; there's just something discomforting about not having a dedicated sleeping space. I started exploring room-dividing options, which culminated in the 24-foot shelf unit that wraps around my bed. About a third of the sweeping structure is made from eight short collapsible bookshelves, stacked in four columns, which I linked and augmented with custom shelving built to replicate their look as closely as possible. Rope light hidden along the top casts soft radiance on the ceiling.
