A cube bookcase has simple straight square shelving. These are very popular since they are the basic style of bookcases. These bookcases have a hip modern look with clean, smooth lines. Cube bookcases are general modular meaning they can be stacked upward or outward and can even hang up on the wall. This style of bookcase is perfect for someone who has limited space and lots of books
The invention of the printing press by Johannes Gutenberg in 1440 made books more common. The need for their storage also become more pronounced. The oldest shelves in existence are believed to be in the Bodleian Library at Oxford University, they have been in place since the end of the 16th century. What surprises me though is the fact that the initial designs made then have remained till today, and are used as a standard for the design of the modern bookcases.
When it comes to choosing the right type of bookcases, there are various considerations that need to be made. i.e. the kind of material to be used, the type of finish, the make or the style, the vertical height, the width, depth, etc. The most common end products available in the market today includes, light, medium, dark, or even black wood.
