A Modern Heirloom- A French Bibliothéque, a book lover’s dream!

Posted on Apr 23, 2017 in Blog


This bookcase is not only a Modern Heirloom, it is a modern masterpiece.  Whether you place it in a dining room, living room, or library, this extraordinary French antique reproduction will add a touch of sophistication to any setting.  Just imagine displaying your prized books and art objects within this cabinet, sheer joy!  There are four French wired doors with pewter cross braces completed with a brass center medallion.  The finish is a hand rubbed antique black paint and best of all the cabinet has an ivory milk paint interior.  Love that!  

If you love books as much as I do, you deserve something beautiful to display your collection.  This bibliothéque is very versatile even though most would believe it to be too formal for today's lifestyles.  Envision the cabinet in a loft with brick walls, distressed floors, and an open concept floor plan.  Add a pair of 120 inch long slipcover sofas, a huge cocktail ottoman in leather, and a pair of comfortable chairs- see how it could work?!  Special order and save during McNabb & Risley's Spring Sale!  Important- remember to measure your space because this piece is 87 inches wide, 16 inches deep, and 94 inches high.  

I have a question for you, is it considered hoarding when it's books?  Hmmmm- when I begin to think I own too many books, I remember my Great Aunt always said, "Never underestimate a well read woman."  So true!
