English bookcases for your home
Still today, English bookcases offer a very practical benefit in addition to the aesthetic appearance. Even original English bookcases built today are characterized by a fundamentally sturdy structure because they are authentically built in the traditional way. The shelves of our original English bookcases can be variably adjusted in height which provides you optimized use of the available space. English bookcases can be wonderfully combined with antiques or with other period furniture, but also as a contrast to modern furniture with modern surfaces due to their classic design and the calm colours of the precious woods such as mahogany, oak and yew.
They are perfect for setting up a reading corner! With one or two of such bookcases and a Chesterfield sofa, you create an inviting and cozy place to read and dream.

English bookcases and English display cabinets
English bookcases and English display cabinets often have a very elaborate glazing, it is so complex that there is a separate profession, which unfortunately vanishes more and more. In the city of Brighton, for example, there is only one skilled craftsman who pursues this profession. A well known style of glass pattern is the Regency glazing: No matter how wide and high the doors of the English bookcases or English display cabinets are, 13 panes are mounted in certain angles, all of which are still fixed with traditional kit. Very well known is the Gothic glazing with its gothic arches in the upper part of the glazing. Curved doors on your English bookcases and English display cabinets are no problem for traditionally skilled cabinet makers in England.
