The breakfront bookcase is one of the classic English furniture designs. As well as being aesthetically pleasing to the eye it is practical with all the book storage space. Some of them come with secretaires – fold down desks to the centre panel – making it like three items rolled into one. A bookcase, desk and sideboard with storage space.
Our classic Regency Sheraton Breakfront bookcase comes in mahogany and walnut. To the front are the classic Sheraton motifs such as scrolls, urns and arabesques.
The breakfront bookcase comes in two sections making it easier to move around. The top half comes apart from the bottom. The glass fronted top half is the place for displaying books and other decorative pieces. The shelves are adjustable so you can fit different sized items on the shelves. The glass is overlaid with the thin latticed wood. The top of the bookcase is surmounted by the classic pediement.
Then the bottom half of the breakfront bookcase features the cupboard section where you can store other items, perhaps crockery and plates. This section is also shelved and can house a lot of goods.
