Our New Directions Double Bookcase is offered in several standard sizes.
Vertical heights of 72″, 84″ and 96″.
Shelf widths of 16″, 32″ and 40″. The outer width of the bookcase is 2.25″ wider than double the measurement (i.e. a double bookcase with 40″ shelves will measure 82.25″ wide)
Our New Directions bookcases are crafted in our Brooklyn workshop of solid hardwood; your choice of cherry, walnut, birch or oak.
The natural beauty of the wood is enhanced with a non-toxic oil and wax finish.
The versatility of our stately Bookcase Hutch provides an elegant display case above, while offering storage below. This handcrafted marvel can be placed in any room of the house. Choose solid cherry, maple, walnut, birch, or oak.
Also available with glass doors to display your cherished items, or provide a dust free space for electronics that require a remote control.
Not enough cabinet space? Add a cabinet above instead of shelves. You can store your rare books while on display, or present a collection of curiosities from a life of travel. We’ve made a name for ourselves in housing numerous collections from books, to vinyls, to trains, and so on.
Configurations are endless, and the aesthetic is optional. Choose a more sleek profile by removing the overhang, or simply remove the arch to create an apron that reaches the floor the full width across the base. You may also choose a legged base that will leave space from the floor to the cabinet.
We also produce a wider, adjoining unit that provides cabinet space for more utilitarian needs.
