Driscoll Bookshelves

Very similar to the Reclaimed Wood Coffee Table and the Railroad Tie Dining Table, this bookshelf and console have spare iron frames that show off the aged wood to its best advantage.


Driscoll Bookshelves
:
“Airy, open, and equally suited to penthouse and farmhouse alike, our Driscoll bookshelf is amply scaled for vases, dishware and art books (and the art, too). Refinished railroad-tie shelves have smooth surfaces and rough, raw edges that bring warm rusticity to the modern blackened steel frames. Hand-waxed finish; oiled and waxed iron frame. Assembly required. Additional shipping, $150.”

60″L x 15″D x 72″H.

$895.00, Buy it here.


Driscoll Console

60″L x 18-1/4″D x 34-1/4″H.

I’m guessing most of us don’t have this kind of cash lying around just waiting to be spent on a bookcase, but it sure is impressive.

Treku Bookcase

These shelves are great for any application, such as in a study, office or living room. What’s great about them is that they rely on gravity for strength, so each shelf has a weight load of 110 lb for each shelf without putting any real stress on the wall.

Plateau Wall Box

These hand made white oak or black walnut wall storage boxes can be customized to customers specifications.

They are made with traditional construction techniques with mitered joints.

“The Plateau Boxes are designed to frame objects in a natural, unobtrusive environment. Because they are blindly fastened to the wall, the boxes —and the objects they hold— exhibit a unique lightness of form. Each box is independent unto itself, so users can apply their creativity to configure the boxes on a wall.

Available in black walnut or riftsawn white oak, with sliding door and shelf options. Custom size and proportions available upon request, please call for details.”

Biblioteca Bookrack by Umbra

So clever, and definitely a piece that people will ask about…it would be interesting to see if others are inspired to find their own coffee tables and turn them into book racks.
