UK Library Furniture Suppliers

Although we are primarily known as an office furniture supplier, we also supply an extensive range of library furniture.

Our products include double-sided bookcases, low library bookshelves, mobile or moveable bookcases, book displays and rotating DVD/CD units.

We also have library furniture suitable for children’s areas including low book displays, small tables and chairs. Additionally, seating and tables for breakout areas and reception furniture can also be supplied.

Our library furniture is ideal for schools, bookshops, colleges and universities.

In this blog post I will highlight some of these product ranges.

Double-Sided Bookcases

4 Column 6 Shelf Library UnitThe bookcase shown in the image is a4-column 6-shelf library unit with ladder.

Both the back and front have been finished so that the bookcase can be used from both sides.

It can be used as shown with open bookshelves, alternatively optional wood or glass doors can be added.

A selection of different finishes are available including walnut, cherry and wenge.

Low Library Bookshelves

Low Library ShelvingLow height bookshelves similar to the unit shown in the image provide easy access to books for those with disabilities or children.

This particular bookshelf is set on wheels and therefore allows greater library layout flexibility.

It’s also an open bookcase so books can be accessed from both sides.

Additionally, the end panels of this unit are recessed so that books can be displayed. This is ideal if you are running a promotion or want to highlight particular titles or topics.

Book Displays

Book DisplaysBook displays are a great way to show off individual titles and make them easily accessible.

Most of our ranges have height adjustable shelves which means that you could potentially cross promote DVDs or CDs to accompany associated book ranges.

Alternatively, you could put a rotating DVD/CD display unit in place of the computer monitor in this image.

Book displays are also ideal for information points such as visitor centres and reception areas.

Children’s Library Furniture

Children's Library AreaWe have a wide range of book displays, bookcases, seating and tables designed specifically for schools, bookshops or other children’s library areas.

Naturally the furniture has a lower overall height to provide easy access to books for little people!

Funky seating can also be added to help create the perfect kid’s environment, conducive to reading and learning.

Colourful book displays further complement your children’s library area.

Breakout Areas

Breakout AreaSome libraries and book stores have designated breakout areas. These are areas specifically designed to allow users to sit and read or study.

The example shown in this image portrays an ultra modern and stylish configuration. However, we also have a large range of more conventional furniture for a more classic look and feel.

In addition to our table ranges we have a massive selection of seating options including reproduction chairs, stools, modular seating, tub chairs and sofas.

Reception Furniture

Reception DeskFor libraries, schools and colleges, you might also need to include a reception area.

We have an extensive range of wood and glass desks or wood/glass combinations. View all reception furniture here.

Some of our reception desks also have integral lighting systems and a wide variety of different finish and styling options.
