These cabinets would be set into recesses. Made between 1714 – 1837 the Georgian secretaire bookcase typically had glazed as well as interior doors and secretaire drawers. The breakfront bookcase was popular traditionally used to store books, china and trophies and usually featuring four opening doors. Queen Anne style bookcases were also very popular in the early 18th Century with graceful and elegant curves’ their designs were simple and often featured cabriole legs. Later in the 18th Century, bookcase designs became more elaborate. During the 19th Century, bookcases rapidly became available, over time and smaller bookcases were designed with the idea they were kept in a sitting room or bedroom with just enough storage for your most treasured books. Designers of note include the most coveted cabinetmakers of their day Thomas Chippendale and Thomas Sheraton. Sheraton bookcase designs often featured open fronts with adjustable shelves; his satinwood bookcases were considered divine, carrying enrichment without looking ostentatious. Thomas Chippendale (1718-1779) designed sophisticated and stylish bookcases, his designs had elements of neoclassicism, as well as French Rococo and gothic inspiration; many of Chippendale designs became popular again in the mid and late 1800s. Storage is a must in an office, study or library. Credenzas or cabinets for files can sit along the wall behind the desk with bookcases either side should ensure you never run out. A huge benefit to storage is there are many possibilities and you can find storage cabinets and dressers to fit any style or requirement.
