Art Deco; Bookcases (23)

new Art Deco wood or painted bookcases with Skyscraper silhouette design

Make a fantastic Deco impact in any interior with this stunning bookcase, looking totally Deco but treated in a fresh way. This is called having fun with Deco design. A new range of Deco bookcases designed to capture the look of stepped skyscrapers. Some of the designs have the Skyscraper shape further emphasised by the used of another colour for the edging around it, an idea borrowed from Paul Frankl. They can have totally open backs allowing them to be used as room dividers, either a single one or a pair oppisate each other. The open backs and plenty of shelf space make them ideal for displaying artefacts or books. The aim was to keep the central 'skyscraper' shape space open, to emphasis the shape, so glass shelves are fitted here. We could even fit an LED light in the top of the central section to hi-light any objects d'art.

The bookcase can have a painted / lacquered finish, or be in a wood of your choice. The stepped plinth adds strongly to the overall Deco look. Some of the designs below show a further Deco design detail having stepped tops to the bookcases. The skyscraper shape can be further emphasised in a couple of ways. We can add a panel at the back, which can be mirror (or satin mirror as the design below), or could be a wood veneered board or lacquered. We can also add a door to enclose the central shape in a variety of painted or wood finishes.
