We can't get enough of interiors ideas that push the envelope of what's possible to create inside a home.

And DIY porn doesn't get much better than this - a geometric levitating bookcase. How cool?

The insanely impressive piece of work is the creation of Jessica and Sinclair Breen, a couple from Brisbane, Australia, who had long dreamed of making the unique bookcase after coming across some inspo on Google eight years ago.

Finally moving into they dream home (with a wall that was big enough), the parents-of-two set to work on their statement book wall.

Jessica and Sinclair, both 35, knew that such an intricate design would need professionally cut MDF panels, so they sent off their measurements and quantities to a local kitchen cabinet manufacturer who cut and pre-drilled the pieces exactly to their order.

The order came in at just under $900 dollars (roughly £456) for all panels complete with a satin finish.

Armed with their materials, the couple set to work.

Jessica, a teacher's aide, and her builder husband began drilling together to make the boxes in varying sizes, before assembling them all in a mockup of the wall flat on the floor, to make sure everything fit as planned.

Finally, they began fixing the boxes on the wall, watching the bookcase come to life.

"Sinclair and I starting putting together the panels into the boxes at 8am on our 11th wedding anniversary and we worked solid until midnight that night creating the fake wall, mapping out the boxes and putting it together for the end product," Jessica told Tyla.

The couple have two kids, Jackson, 10, and Oliver Breen, 8, who simply love the bookcase.

"Our kids loved the bookcase. They woke up the following morning being able to see all of the books showcased in the bottom boxes for easy access which was a stark contrast from their books being stuffed away in cupboards out of sight," the mum added.

Guys, I hope you don't mind us stealing this one. We're obsessed.
