This bookcase concept is adopted from the original Etagere furniture design that was meant to display small objects of art in living areas. Etagere bookcases are light and casually functional, consisting of just a frame with no back or side covers and open from the front. Symmetrical or asymmetrical shelves run across them.
When small planters, statuettes, or other décor items are displayed along with books on an Etagere stand, it transforms into a tall and elegant showpiece, the pride of your living area!
Steel and aluminum channels or tubes are commonly used to make Etagere bookstands. Wrought iron is also a popular option. Shelf bases are of wooden planks or steel plates.
These bookcases can be of varying heights, but their overall appearance is tall and graceful. Sizes vary, but a standard size is 48"H X 20"W X 13"D.
Etagere bookcases will match elegant interiors with avant-garde décor. They personify casual chic and sophistication. So, rooms with modern art, an imaginative DIY lampshade, boho curtains, maybe a bit of graffiti too! Also, think of openness and minimalistic interior designs. Etagere bookstands are made for such settings.
