Use Bookcases to Showcase More Than Just Your Encyclopedia Collection!
One of the things I love about visiting other people’s homes is seeing what statement they’re making about their personality. Are they sentimental, creative or conservative? Do they like to display a lot of personal items or keep things more uniform? The spaces I enjoy the most are the ones that tell a unique story. From the layout, color and material of the furniture to the number of pictures hanging on the wall, you want your space to represent you.
I like to think of a design space with the same mindset I think of my wardrobe. I dress a certain way to portray an image that is representative of my personality.
As Coco Chanel said, “Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.”
That saying is true when you’re decorating your home, too. We’ve all been to one of those houses where you walk in and you’re instantly overwhelmed because it’s covered head-to-toe with “stuff”. To avoid doing that (or simply over decorating) you can focus your collection of home goods and keepsakes to designated areas.
I’ve included a sampling of bookcases from our collection to highlight the different ways you can furnish your space to tell your story.
Cherry Moon Bookcase- This bookcase with its open display, is great for both organizing and showcasing keepsakes and artwork. It features the signature Cherry Moon reverse tapered legs and gentle arching curve on the bottom. It is available in a variety of heights and adjustable shelf options and can be made in Cherry, Maple and Walnut woods.
Custom Shaker Bookcase Full Glass Doors- If your keepsakes and artifacts are a bit more fragile, this may be the bookcase for you. The double, glass panel doors protect your collection while allowing you and your guests to admire the display. This piece is customized to fit any space and features adjustable shelf options. It is available in Cherry, Maple, Oak and Walnut woods with a variety of Finishes.
Solid Wood Bookcase with Panel Doors-This versatile bookcase allows you to display artwork, books and keepsakes as well as serve as a storage space, featuring panel doors on the bottom third of the unit. Show what you want and hide what you don’t! This case is customizable to fit for your space and has adjustable shelf options. It is available in Cherry, Maple, Oak and Walnut woods with a variety of Finishes.
Ladder Style Bookcase- If you’re going for a modern minimalist style, this may be the piece for you. This bookcase offers 5 hand-crafted shelves in an open design allowing you to display your books, artwork and collectables. In addition to the standard case size, this piece can be customized and is available in Cherry, Maple, Oak and Walnut woods.
If you’re not sure where to start or what your looking for, use the wardrobe analogy: When I’m looking to refresh my wardrobe, I often pick a theme or style as a starting point, do the same for your space. Is it organization that you’re in need of, protection for fragile artifacts or storage space? Once you’ve determined your need, pick a bookcase or cabinet and go from there.

A Little History About Shaker Style
Born in the Northeast, the Shaker furniture style is a simple, utilitarian design characterized by straight tapered legs, woven chair seats, and mushroom-shaped wooden knobs. Original Shaker furniture was produced by communities of the United Society of Believers starting in the late 1700’s. Today’s Vermont made Shaker style furniture ranges from a strict interpretation of the original Shaker pieces to many variations on the theme, often incorporating modern functionalities, curves and hardware. Simple aesthetics and sturdy design remain at the heart of today’s Vermont Shaker style furniture.
The Shaker Showroom: Online & In the Woods
Our online gallery features over 200 pieces of Shaker influenced furniture, ranging from traditional to contemporary styles. Each piece of furniture can be customized in your choice of natural Cherry, Maple, Oak, or Walnut wood.
