Awesome shelves- they were so easy to hang and the gold matched perfectly with the desk we chose for the office furniture.
Wide Art Deco Bookcase
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.
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.
Geometric Art Deco Bookshelf
This bookcase has six shelves and a chic and elegant design. Outlined in gold with glossy white manufactured wood shelves, it features a modern luxe look. The curved aspect at the side lends it extra depth and dimension.
Slim Art Nouveau Bookcase
Willa Arlo™ Interiors
Constructed of sturdy steel with tempered glass shelves, this bookcase is sleek and contemporary. It has a slim open frame design with subtle Art Deco geometric detail at the edge of each shelf. The legs can be adjusted via levelers.
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.
Vintage Art Deco Shelves
A true vintage piece from 1930s Scotland, this bookcase captures the quintessential Art Deco look. Crafted from solid oak and veneers, it still features the original glass with triangle molding detail at the front. Three shelves are included within.
Mahogany Art Deco Book Shelf
This beautiful bookcase is originally from the 1920s. Though small in size, it has three wide shelves that will fit plenty on. It is crafted from mahogany, metal, and wood, with traditional Art Deco geometric detailing on either side.
Modern Art Deco Bookcase
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.
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.
Stainless Steel Bookcase
Unlike most shelves, this one requires you to place your books horizontally. Featuring ten floating shelves, you can choose from two basic colors: white and anthracite. This bookshelf is 60'' tall, and its weight capacity goes up to 100 lb.
This bookshelf is a perfect solution for small spaces, thanks to its narrow vertical silhouette. When filled to the limit, it will look like an effortless book stack. This bookshelf will look stunning in a classically styled office, especially if you fill it with worn-out vintage volumes.
This bookcase is a combination of functionality and refined modern design. It boasts a slender frame made of stainless steel and provides you with plenty of storage space with its five large shelves. Each bookcase tier has a weight capacity of up to 40 lb.
If you're looking for storage that is both convenient and attractive, this bookshelf is for you. Its open shelves make plenty of room to display decorative items, keep books close at hand, and declutter your space. This bookcase is a lovely addition to any minimalist space - its asymmetrical shelving catches your eye but isn't too striking.
It is a bookcase that combines two elements. On the one hand it is a very practical and very useful cupboard, on the other hand, this is an extremely aesthetic piece of furniture that will use also to decorate.
