Make books accessible

Do select shelving—built-in or freestanding—that makes organizing and retrieving reading materials a breeze. A symmetrical grid gives this built-in bookcase a tidy appearance that's also stylish, while the light wood backdrop discourages shadows, making titles easier to read and showing off treasures, too. The floor-to-ceiling design houses an abundance of books, and the library ladder ensures all are reachable.
