Description: We wanted to build a library in the short part of our L-shaped living room. We decided to build storage space in the lower part (for which we used the IVAR units that are 50 cm deep) and build bookshelves on top that (30 cm deep).
The lower shelves were covered with sliding doors, for which a railing system was installed, and this part was covered with large MDF counter tops. On top we built the bookshelves which were attached to the wall. Because of the electric circuit board in the corner we built a cabinet there.
