Traditional Wood Bookcases with Doors

Barrister bookcases were originally designed to be portable book carrying cases. The intent was to facilitate the frequent office changes of Victorian-era British lawyers, also known as barristers. These wood office bookcases were made so that each shelf could be removed with the books still shelved, eliminating the need to pack books into a box and then unpack after moving the unit. The bookshelves are contained within a cabinet-style exterior. Read More

Today's barrister bookcases are usually made of wood, but most don't include removable shelves, making them simply bookcases with doors. The idea behind wood bookcases with cabinet design is an aesthetic sophistication combined with the protective element the doors provide. For wood bookcases that do feature the removable shelf design, look to brands like DMi Furniture and Homelegance.

Bookcases with doors come in a variety of styles and finishes. You can recreate the look and feel of a historic Victorian library using finishes like cherry, chocolate or oak. For more modern homes, choose black or white bookcases.


Barrister Bookcases as Curio Cabinets

Wood bookcases with doors are also an ideal method of showcasing artwork and collectibles. Although curio cabinets are a more traditional choice for displaying personal treasures at home, browsing bookcases with doors is an option that will expand your selection. You may find you prefer the look of bookshelves inside a cabinet, particularly if you'd like to display a combination of your favorite collectibles with your finest hardcover books.

Browse all our many practical and highly versatile bookcases and other office furniture. You'll find bookcases for your living room, den, bedroom, basement or any area of your home you need extra storage. Brands like Ameriwood, DMi Furniture, Homelegance, Riverside Furniture, Wayborn and Wynwood bring you an array of bookcase designs including models with doors.
