Freestanding bookcase

For simple but elegant look, insert tall, made-to-measure freestanding bookcases into the spaces on either side of a living room fireplace. If your room has distinguishing features such as the cornicing and Georgian fire surround seen here, ask your carpenter to design a carcass that will complement them; it will help you create a smart, co-ordinated look.
