Bookcases

* Under Development *

Bookcases, also called bookshelves, are pieces of furniture consisting of horizontal shelves traditionally used for the storage of books. With either fixed or adjustable positions for the shelves, bookcases naturally serve a utilitarian purpose and are useful for storing a wide variety of things in private homes, libraries, offices, and retail stores. Variations of bookcases include options for permanent affixation to a wall or floor, freestanding, ranges of height and width, glass doors for protection and security, and the possibility of combining multiple bookcases into larger systems.
