Description

This chic bookshelf leaves your room feeling organized and reduced of clutter. It features eight cubby holes with labels, two large shelves on the bottom, and a distressed paneled back.

Designer Advice

Bookcases with cubby holes are great for people who like to organize their books by genre or color. If you consider yourself a bit OCD, then a bookcase that offers labels is the ideal bookcase for you. Cubby hole chic bookcases have limited space which means some of your books may have to be moved into the next cubby hole.

Description

This chic bookcase is designed with an open style and has non-slip stoppers at the base to prevent scratching your floors. It features five shelves, four posts with finials, and ball feet.

Designer Advice

Tall shabby chic bookcases make a more noticeable focal point in a room compared to a small or short one. When you use a tall and thin bookshelf that reaches your ceilings, it draws your eyes upwards and creates the illusion of taller ceilings. Because of their height, they hold more books and are great for people who read daily.
