Industrial Piping, Recycled Into One of a Kind Shelving

© Stella Bleu

We've seen pipes reincarnated into lamps and chandeliers, but Dallas-based designer Stella Bleu presents an intriguing re-use idea: recycling old industrial piping into shelving that allows books to be displayed in a whole new way. And yes, these skinny shelves double as lighting too.

Employing iron pipes in a winding form, the shelves are designed to hang off the wall using brackets, creating a modern look that has a bit of a gritty industrial touch to it.

If you don't have a large flat wall, there are other different configurations available -- so if you've got a corner that's in dire need of sprucing up, these pipes might be the ticket.

Of course, Stella Bleu also does the pipe lighting thing -- mixed with shelving. Check out these sconce pipes, which double as both illumination and book rack.
