We like furniture best at its most functional, so the prospect of a sized-to-order bookshelf strikes us as a very good idea. The only catch? You’ll basically be buying a pile of plywood and clamps.

Indie Furniture’s new bookshelf takes the modular philosophy to its natural extreme. If you need to 4’ x 7’ space, they’ll tell you exactly how many cubbyholes to build, and exactly how many planks and connectors you’ll need to build them. Of course, there’s quite a markup for all that lumber, but unless you’ve got a carpenter handy, it should be the next best thing.
