Ladder bookcases are sleek and free-standing, so they are a great decoration piece for your home. They have a fairly contemporary design and work great in tight spaces.
While there are some newer versions of this style of bookcase, being built in less expensive and less durable materials a true barrister bookcase is going to be made of quality hardwood. They are going to also be made of high quality glass inserts in the doors and have fine brass features such as handles, knobs and hinges. On the high quality pieces you will find that the joints are put together with dove tail and assorted other traditional methods of fastening rather than more modern methods of screws and nails.
Barrister Bookshelf: The Barrister bookshelf consists of separate racks that can be stacked together to create a cabinet. The biggest advantage of this piece of furniture is that it comes with a glass door to protect your books from moisture and dust.
