Wide Art Deco Bookcase

Wide Art Deco Bookcase

Everly Quinn

Made from stainless steel and MDF, this bookcase has a black oak and champagne finish. Featuring four shelves that are covered with intertwining circles, each gap between the shelves is wide so you can fit taller books or decorative objects on them.

Designer Advice:

This bookcase would look stunning in a modern industrial space. However, if you’re worried about it looking too harsh, pick out the warm champagne tones with a champagne lamp placed near the bookcase. For an extra glam look, rich jewel tones like purple and green always pair well with champagne and won’t clash with the black shelves.

Everly Quinn

$326.99 $405.99

Designer Advice:

If you have a narrow living room, this bookcase is an excellent option. Though it isn’t necessarily super small, its open frame will give the illusion of more space, which in turn makes a room look bigger. Gold looks especially good paired with navy blue, so place your bookcase on top of a navy rug or go big with a navy accent wall.

Modern Art Deco Bookcase

Modern Art Deco Bookcase

Everly Quinn

Made from steel with five tempered glass shelves, this bookcase is full of elegance. The geometric detail on either side nods to Art Deco style whilst still remaining contemporary. Moreover, the tempered glass shelves are widely spaced for large books.

Designer Advice:

We recommend this bookcase for an entryway. Its tall stature and wide shelves will be both functional and stylish. It would look best in a hallway with high ceilings and lots of natural light so the gold can shine more. Alternatively, a forest green wall would pair well with the gold and provide a striking contrast.
