Art Deco; Bookcases (24)

new Art Deco wood or painted bookcases with Skyscraper silhouette design

This is another very interesting Art Deco style bookcase, looking totally Deco but treated in a fresh way. This bookcase design is full of Deco detailing, from the stepped front rails to the stepped plinth and pediment, but especially to the skyscraper outline on the sides, which can be further emphasised by use of a different finish. The bookcase can have a painted / lacquered finish, or be in a wood of your choice, and look especially good when 2 different colours or finishes are used. Some of the designs have the shapes further emphasised by the use of another colour for the edging around it, an idea borrowed from Paul Frankl.

As designer makers we can produce any style of Deco bookcases you want, in any size, any material / finish, etc.. We can do individual freestanding bookcases, as shown above to full wall runs, L shapes, & built-in bookcases and libraries; just ask. Every one is bespoke made to order, so you can tailor to your exact needs. We can work with clients anywhere in the world no problem. Access is always a consideration for getting bookcases into the room where they will sit. We don't discuss prices or sizes until we have agreed a specification with a customer.

Although we've shown you a good selection of colour options you could have for the bookcases, basically we can finish them anyway you want. The above designs show some darker wood finish versions to the lower ones being painted in Miami Deco style pastel colours. The bookcases below show a variation in treatment of the top of the bookcase, substituting the stepped pediment for a skyscraper style cornice moulding. The colours are darker and stronger visually.

Get carried away and have a whole wall of bookcases or a library with bookcases of various proportions. We shown several bookcases together to either line 1 wall, or return around a corner. The vertical stepped rails take on an interesting rhythm when several bookcases sit side by side. This is just a quick design to show how these bookcases could be combined.
