Rustic Boat Bookcase


Rustic Boat Bookcase

Rustic Boat Bookcase

From £85 - available in three sizes.

These beautiful hand carved rustic boat bookcases will bring an old world feeling of the sea in to any room and are made in Indonesia from Albesia wood, which is a fast growing sustainable tree which can grow to 70 feet in just a few years and is found all over South East Asia. These pieces of nautical furniture have been lightly painted brown but can also be bought in a rustic lighter brown colour or painted white. Great for books and other home ornaments as well as making a great nautical feauture in any nautical themed bedroom or lounge.

These boat bookcases are a little less ornate than the boat bookcases featured below with oars but serve a very practical purpose due to the size of the shelves and the boat bookcases themselves. We tend to sell these more to customers in pairs as a complete room theme and also sell them on to retailers as they are a perfect way of displaying retail products as well as books. The rustic colour tends to sell best but for no extra charge we will paint these white for you "in house". The large ones are a whopping 197 centimetres high and even the smallest are a respectable 97 centimetres in height. The small one has the one shelf as well as the base shelf and the medium and large ones have two shelves as well as the base. Practical and attractive nautical furnishings and these look really good in white with our large shells displayed. These are a made from natural wood and as such, there will be blemishes and some uneveness in the design, however the overall effect is stunning. Great piece of nautical furniture as beach house furnishing or nautical office design.

Largest Blue/White Boat Shelves 163 cms - DGL8829

We have always done well with our boat bookcases, which are rarely used for books but as a nautical decoration.

They do have quite a different feel to our others and as a new item we expect these to sell very well. Largest boat shelves in this style and measuring 163 cms in height, 68 cms in width and 23 cms in depth.
