True to its name, the traditional and most common purpose of a bookcase is, ahem... a place for storing your books. In modern British households however, ‘the bookcase’ has become a term for a piece of furniture which has many different meanings and purposes. Some households now see the bookcase as a shelf where they can display decorative items, others see it as a way to partition a room and bring some new shapes and angles to the space. Others try to emphasise how the bookcase itself is a piece of artwork and go for one with an interesting and complex design.
In our collection you will find bookcases in a variety of different shapes and sizes. From the elaborate, Far-East inspired Ying Yang bookcase, through to the minimalist Nova bookcase, each item is carefully designed with its own unique personality and functions that are geared towards different needs. When you are selecting your bookcase, think carefully about the effect that it might have on your room. If you are looking to buy a large bookcase this is particularly important, as it will become a very prominent feature of the space.
Are you looking to find a bookcase that will subtly blend into the room, or to enhance and develop the space? This is an important question to start your search. If you want a bookcase that blends well, make sure that you match the style and wood of the bookcase with that of your present décor and furniture. If, on the other hand, you are looking to enrich and modernise the space, make sure to choose something with a slightly more striking style or wood tone than your current furniture. To maintain a good balance between the styles in the room make sure that the modernisation is subtle and understated. In other words don't ry to chqnge too much, too quickly. Take your time to consider the different features of each of our bookcases and find the ideal piece for your home.
