Scarborough House Country Bookcase

Scarborough House Modern Bookcase

We are delighted that a superbly crafted new Scarborough House bookcase looks so great in our customer’s home in California, especially because this is a tale of a false start that transformed into a happy ending! A quality bookshelf is a great way to enhance your home office, living room, or even dining room. A quality solid wood shelving unit or cubby provides storage space that can function anywhere, from large space to small space. Whether you’re looking for antique, Mid-Century Modern, or modern bookcases, has you covered. 

Christine B. in Pebble Beach, CA, originally found me on Ebay and ordered a Woodbridge Furniture Company bookcase. The one she chose was on back order so she decided to switch to this Scarborough House bookcase.

Scarborough House Country BookcaseThe handsome and sturdy new Scarborough House bookcase is hand-planed by Scarborough House craftsmen for a beautiful texture and a heavily distressed finish on the wood that looks authentically aged. Touch dimmer lighting inside the bookcase illuminates books or other items and collectibles on display behind the glass doors. The solid brass handles and long brass hinges add another decorative touch to this high-quality bookcase. Here it is in Christine’s home:

A Quality Modern Bookcase

To give you an idea of scale, the bookcase is nearly 6 feet long. Doesn’t it look wonderful? I love the way that Christine has arranged her gallery of wall art above the bookcase. The grid of images is a nice echo of the grid look of the front of the glass door cabinet. The look is orderly, serene and classic.

This view of Christine’s hallway is just breathtaking. I love the archway, the wood plank floor and the iron lanterns. I want to walk down the hallway and enjoy the views into each room that I’m sure are equally as elegant. The purity of line in this photo shows what a great eye Christine has for interior design!

Christine received the modern bookcase on July 4, of all celebratory dates, so it arrived with happy Independence Day vibes! Christine wrote to us: “Dear Aimee, the Scarborough Bookcase was just delivered and looks fantastic! Delivery was AAA+++. Thank you very much!”

Wall Decor Enhanced

So, it seems that the way things turned out is just perfect, even though this is a different bookcase than the one Christine originally intended to order. Sometimes, fate has its own ideas about home decor! Thank you Christine for sending these fine photos and we hope you enjoy the bookcase for many years. At, we provide a wide variety of quality wood bookcases. Whether you’re in the market for a tall bookcase, open bookcase, something with built in wood shelves or a quality place to display decorative objects, we’ve got you covered.

These modern bookcases can be great pieces of office furniture, or stand in your living room as a complement to your end tables or console tables. We could also see these being used in your entryway as a display cabinet, with clean lines that will enhance the look of your favorite books.
