Billy Bookshelves Change Dimensions and Size

Ikea's Billy Bookcase May No Longer House Books

Ikea's Billy bookcase may have to change its name. Rumor has it that its new design and dimensions are being changed, so that it will be deeper and more adaptable — in other words, its new shape will not prioritize books. In its defense, an Ikea spokesperson says "I hate to dispel those who think the bookcase is dead. We do not see it that way. We really see books as decorative. Books will still continue to be something used to adorn. They're rich and they're textured."While I agree that books are beautiful, I certainly don't see books as decorative. I'd describe them as educational, inspirational, and entertaining before I'd ever think about tacking on the adjective of decorative!

Great point, Crazylash! They'd probably be perfect for all of my interior design and architecture books, too.

I have a few billys for my books and there are some books I cant fit in there because the shelves aren't deep enough. So, I think deeper shelves is a good thing for my books!
