Bespoke bookcases for families with too many books
Bespoke bookcases which fit exactly into the space available are just the thing for taming wild collections of books. There’s probably no such thing as too many books but when they’re in double density rows on sagging shelves in inadequate cabinets or knee high in unsorted piles – or just never get taken out of the moving crates – then they’re a nightmare. Suddenly you’ve got to find that atlas for your daughter’s geography homework – where to start?
The music room/library of a well read and talented family. All the reading matter is on show and ready to hand. Bruce has designed and fitted cabinets to make the best use of the available wall space. It’s functional and looks good. Note how the cabinets are absolutely part and parcel of the room – they extend to full ceiling height and are trimmed with the same coving as the rest of the room.
Supersize bespoke bookcases
So you’ve got a huge Edwardian drawing room with a stratospherically high ceiling dwarfing standard size bookcases from the retail park store. You have to think big.
Freestanding bookcases, bookshelves made to measure
We also make small pieces of furniture. This simple bookcase in solid oak was made to measure for this awkward space on a landing. Below, wider bookshelves in the living room of the same home.
