Shallow Bookcases For Sale on 1stDibs

At 1stDibs, there are several options of shallow bookcases available for sale. Each of these unique shallow bookcases was constructed with extraordinary care, often using wood, mahogany and oak. There are all kinds of shallow bookcases available, from those produced as long ago as the 18th Century to those made as recently as the 21st Century. Regency, Baroque and Georgian shallow bookcases are consistently popular styles. Large shallow bookcases can prove too imposing for some spaces, so the smaller shallow bookcases available at 1stDibs — each spanning 32 inches in width — may make for a better choice. There have been many well-made shallow bookcases over the years, but those made by Keller Furniture are often thought to be among the most beautiful.

How Much are Shallow Bookcases?

Prices for shallow bookcases can differ depending upon size, time period and other attributes — at 1stDibs, shallow bookcases begin at $1,728 and can go as high as $31,830, while the average can fetch as much as $5,780.

Finding the Right Bookcases for You

As long as curious people have collected stories, we have needed a place to stow them away and preserve them. When auction houses and book dealers proliferated by the late 17th century, the bibliophile was born. And, of course, as with any treasured objects, a book lover’s volumes were suddenly worthy of a luxurious display — enter the bookcase. Americans of means during the 19th century took to amassing art as well as rare books, and antique bookcases of the era, rife with hand-carved decorative accents and architectural motifs, were ideal for displaying their handsome leather-bound wares.

Although our favorite titles may change over the years, the functionality and beauty of their home within our home is timeless. Whether you proudly shelve your books in regal mahogany or behind glass cabinet doors, a bookcase — or perhaps more than one — is essential to creating a cozy nook for any book lover. Even those who don’t covet the perfect home library can benefit from an attractive display case, as bookcases can easily double as charming étagères

Contemporary and customizable options make it easier for you to find the perfect bookcase for your style and stacks. If you don’t wish to fill your storage piece so that your collection is snug within its confines, incorporate extra space to allow for additional displays and decorative objects. And by introducing a striking dark wood Art Deco bookcase or low-profile mid-century modern design by Paul McCobb into your living room, your signed first editions won’t be the only items making a statement. 

Find your dream bookcase on 1stDibs now.
