  • Why choose a vintage bookcase?

    Give treasured books and cool collector’s items the spotlight, with a vintage bookcase that takes centre stage in any room. A bookcase is one of the most functional furniture items you’ll find, and a vintage bookcase combines practicality with character. You can store anything in your vintage bookshelf – it doesn’t just have to be books. Picture frames with your favourite photographs, home accessories and your own collectibles and trinkets can all look great against the backdrop of a vintage bookshelf.

  • Styles of vintage bookcase

    Bookcases take up a considerable amount of space, so they can change the look and feel of a room instantly. And because bookcases have been around for centuries, there are plenty of styles to choose from. Whether your home is a modern and minimalist apartment or a traditional period property, a vintage bookcase is a great addition.

    In our carefully curated selection, you’ll find vintage bookshelves from the 18th century through to repurposed and upcycled pieces from the noughties. The 1960s were a golden era for living room furniture, and bookcases are no exception. With clean lines and perfect proportions carved in rich wood, these vintage bookcases create an effortless retro look instantly.

    If you want to create a more decadent and indulgent feel in your living space, a vintage bookcase from the 1800s is the way to go. And remember, the look of any bookcase can be enhanced by adding the right accessories and lighting.

    Maximise storage with a vintage bookcase

    If you’re short on space and storage, but can’t resist having a bookcase in your home, why not choose a vintage bookcase that combines shelving with a cupboard or drawers? These practical designs give you somewhere to display books and accessories that enhance the look of your home. And somewhere to hide away those little household items we all need, but don’t know where to put.

    Making the most of your vintage bookshelf

    Add subtle or striking accessories to really make your vintage bookcase a feature of the room. Having the right lighting is imperative when reading. Why not create a cosy reading corner with a vintage bookshelf, armchair and floor lamp? You can also add interest to the shelves in a vintage bookcase by popping some photographs, plants or trinkets so your bookshelf really is a reflection of your favourite things.
