The first thing I look for in furniture bookshelves is the overall design of the piece and how it might work inside a home. In today’s market, there seems to be less and less bookshelves to choose from as furniture stores have converted that “floor space” for other products. The design pictured here was created during the mid-century era by Marcel Breuer. The furniture bookshelves feature four shelves attached to a tubular steel frame. This is an open concept as opposed to a close-ended example where the shelves are surrounded by a wood frame. By being open, you could put a TV on the top and use this as an entertainment center as well. Price: $2,660.
