Make a great Deco impact in any interior with this stunning large bookcase. The asymmetrical shape is typical of the 'Skyscraper' Deco style. This has a very strong visual outline, with the stepped profile, door designs, the colour and breakfront, it needs a room that can display it properly. This bookcase offers acres of storage/display space, including the top shelf of each stepped section. Adding some Deco colours really establishes the authentic feel of new pieces of furniture. Such a piece could be used many ways, from a larger home office to bookcase, or display/storage unit, or media centre or drinks unit n a bar or restaurant.
The bookcase can have a painted / lacquered finish, or be in a wood/finish of your choice. We've shown a selection of possible finishes below, from muted Deco colours to wood veneers. We can do these bookcases with or without the decorative corner brackets, which although more work really adds great detailing to the bookcases. As these bookcases are made to order we can change the sizes & proportions to your requirements. We could make up a whole home office in this style if you want.
If you haven't got the space for a large bookcase run, or just want something a bit smaller (but still a good size) we can do shorter runs of the bookcases, as shown above, which is more in scale to most peoples' rooms. This version actually emphasises the stepped look even more. You could have this open backed and use it as a room divider. We've shown more examples of this bookcase on another page 25.
Clients are often nervous about how large bookcases (or display units or media centres) will suit the size of their room. We can do a CAD drawing to show how the unit will look in the room, as design above left. The more information you give us the more realistic the CAD drawing. As designer makers we can produce any style of Art Deco cabinets you want, in any size, any material / finish, any internal fit-out, etc.. We can do individual freestanding bookcases, as shown above to runs, L shapes, & built-in bookcases; just ask. Every one is bespoke made to order, so we can tailor it to your exact needs. We can work with clients anywhere in the world no problem. Consideration should always be given to getting large pieces of furniture into your house room - in the design above right we have designed the bookcase in 3 sections for better transport and access to the room. We don't give out sizes until we have agreed a spec with a customer.
One of the first things clients ask us about bookcases like these is 'what is a ballpark cost for it?'. But until you know exactly what you are quoting for how can we answer this. The above designs show the progression of a bookcase design. Top left shows a very symetrical version, top right has been made more asymmetric, which really suits this style. The 3rd design has had some additional Deco mouldings added, the 4th design has 2 plain doors added to the central section (the doors are handleless, on push catches). The 5th drawing has handles added to the doors. The 6th design has an additional Skyscraper design added to the 2 central doors. Bottom left the whole base section has doors added. Bottom right shows this used as a media unit, with large flat screen TV in the middle. We could have added 2 doors under the TV to hide dvd player, amplifier, etc. We could go on endlessly with these variations.
