Bookcases & Bookshelves

Need somewhere to put your growing collection of adventure novels? What about all those leadership books? Organize your home office or living space with some real, solid wood bookcases. We are proud to offer a wide variety of custom made, high-quality bookcases, book shelves, and book cabinets for the home office or living room. Heck, put it in your bedroom!

Solid Wood Choices: Natural Cherry, Walnut, Maple & Oak

Our custom wood bookcases are pictured in real, natural cherry wood, unless otherwise stated. We also offer natural walnut, maple, and oak bookcases. Your bookshelves will be made-to-order. That means we work with you from the very beginning to make sure you get exactly what you want. "Custom wood furniture" is our middle name.

Design Ideas from the Experts

Check out these creative ideas for bookcases from our favorite interior designers.

  1. Design Sponge’s Amy Azzarito isn’t shy about it: “I have a bit of a book problem.” She’s turned that “problem” into 5 tips to help you style your bookshelf. Among them: alternate horizontal and vertical books; arrange books by color, or add some artwork. Organic materials-- rocks, seashells, and plants- can also be great accents to your shelves.
  2. The folks over at Better Homes and Gardens give excellent bookcase design inspiration in their article “13 Beautiful Bookcase Makeovers.” We like their idea of hiding certain shelves with shades or curtains. Something about that dark ebony stain with the off-white linen shade catches the eye. Unsure of how we feel about them painting over all that beautiful wood grain, though.
  3. House Beautiful’s list of 9 Brilliant Decorating Ideas for your Bookshelves suggests putting mirrors in your bookcase to give the perception of more depth. They use storage containers to house stray items from around the house. They’re also the first one’s we’ve seen to suggest using your shelves to house a mini-bar. Love it!

Style and Functionality

Give your space some character with rich, natural cherry or walnut, or lighten the place up with maple or oak. Whether it’s for the home office, living room, bedroom, or home library, our beautiful, handcrafted bookcases are sure to complement any decor. We offer open-shelf bookcases and bookcases with glass or wood panel doors- or a mix of the three! Most models offer adjustable shelves and can be customized to fit your space. Find a style below and let us know if you’d like to make modifications.

Many of our best-selling bookcases have traditional Shaker designs with clean, crisp lines and tapered edges. Find more rounded edges in our modern shaker collection or go for something more unique with our New York Contemporary bookcases. We also offer mission-style bookcases. Our unique Cherry Moon bookcase is a best-seller. Too many options? Narrow your selection by seeking exclusively for Shaker style bookcases or Copeland bookcases.
