1. A classic furniture piece for traditional decors, the barrister bookcase is strong, sturdy, spacious, and elegant. Their craftsmanship and hardwood construction earns these bookcases a prominent place in living rooms, dens, and offices.
2. Most of our barrister bookcases feature glass-paned doors that present an attractive facade and protect their interiors from dust. If you need unhindered access when working or studying, choose a design with sliding doors that can be fully recessed.
3. Barrister bookcases are so named because they were originally designed to hold law books. This history of holding weighty tomes is why the barrister style tends toward large shelves and durable hardwood frames.
