Recently, we had a customer contact us about doing a rather grandiose bookcase for her library. She was looking for an alternative to having a built-in done. We worked with her for several weeks coming up with a plan and drawing, working out the details and specifics, and confirming measurements. Our furniture maker in England took this information and proved why he is one of the best there is by creating the below masterpiece!
This custom made bookcase measures a whopping twenty three feet wide and is an amazing twelve feet tall! The wood is mahogany which has been subtly accented with satinwood inlays. The center sections have glass doors that measure almost eight feet tall and have solid mahogany doors below. Like many of our bookcases the shelves are adjustable. Finally a gorgeous ladder was made that glides across the entire front of the bookcase (traditional library ladder wheels were added to the base of the ladder after this picture was taken).
A breathtaking piece to see in person! You have the option to have an extraordinary piece like this made for your home as well as an alternative to doing a built-in. We have found pieces like this can even be a less expensive option, so please ask us for a quote!
