Technology has changed many occupations and businesses, and that includes interior design. Professionals in this field are contemplating the importance of bookshelves in an era of electronic media, The Seattle Times reports.

One designer, whose name is Jim Noble, told the news source that full bookshelves were a symbol of wealth and status in the 19th century. He adds that books do not have the same effect as they did once, but he does not see bookshelves going anywhere.

"Just about every house I go into has bookshelves," Noble says to the newspaper. "No one has talked to me about managing their books differently."

In addition, the article illustrates that people will put art and other objects along with books on their shelves.

Individuals who hope to have a career in interior design may want to keep up with the latest trends and expand their skill sets. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employers in this field look for applicants who are familiar with computer design software, architecture and engineering.
