Popular Amazon Reviews

“Great quality, better than I expected for the low cost. Its solid wood, not fiberboard. I put it together myself but needed help picking it up to stand upright (it’s not light).” – DFrappollo (Source: Amazon)

“AMAZING! It’s beautiful and sturdy! I bought the entertainment center to match it and I couldn’t be happier! It was easy to assemble. It took me about 2 hours to put together. The steps were simple and easy to follow. HIGHLY recommend.” – Taylor Chantes (Source: Amazon)

“This is a wonderful shelving unit. I bought the wide one in teak finish. It came expertly packed with each piece wrapped and protected. I am so impressed with the directions for assembly. Very clear, well illustrated and with simple steps. Everything fit precisely and snugly. It’s a heavy unit so I assembled it on a low table and then set it upright with help. (I’m a 62 year old woman.) The backing sections are light weight and I considered not installing them, but it looked unfinished. Once they were on, they looked terrific. The rest of the unit is solid wood with each piece made from joined pieces. It looks spectacular!! My one and only complaint is in trying to remove the warning label from the interior of the right side piece, I scratched the wood! (It should be made with the glue that is easily peeled off.) Two enthusiastic thumbs up for this very substantial addition to my real teak furniture!” – Karen Randall (Source: Amazon)

“I LOVE this bookshelf! It took some time to assemble but well worth it. Good quality” – Amazon Customer (Source: Amazon)

“Solid wood, gorgeous color, mid century vibe. Polished with furniture oil and looks beautiful. Bought matching tv stand as well.” – Amazon Customer (Source: Amazon)

“The quality of this piece blew me away! It came completely unassembled, so I suggest that someone with experience or who is handy put it together. Was looking at a similar piece from a high end retailer, but decided to take a chance on this – so glad I did! The back pieces are somewhat flimsy, but when assembled and up against the wall, the back looks solid. Don’t recommend if you plan to place it where it will be seen from behind. Otherwise – perfection!!! Love it!!” – Peggy Johnson (Source: Amazon)

“The box arrived terribly damaged so we held our breath as we unpacked it. Luckily, none of the pieces were broken or scratched. We really love the color and the wood seems to be good quality. My husband didn’t have any problems putting it together. We would anchor it to the wall if we weren’t replacing the carpet with hardwoods- could easily tip over. The cons: the backing cheapens the look and they came bowed; the drawers are set a little too low so there is a gap. Finally, the stickers that tell you which piece is which are very sticky, hard to get off, and leave a residue. Not happy about that at all!! Cons are not a dealer breaker, just expected better for the price. Overall we’re happy with it. A nice looking bookcase. I included a pic of the bookcase along with the top of my husband’s head.” – M Winter (Source: Amazon)

Decor Ideas for Your Draper Bookcase

Bookcases are not just for libraries or for storing books in general. They can also be used as a focal point in the living room. If you are a reader or a book lover, it is probably your dream to have a grand library in your home. However, bookcases can be prone to chaos and clutter, especially when not properly and regularly maintained. The key to having an attractive bookcase in the interior is to accessorize it and clean it as frequently as possible to prevent dust and dirt from accumulating in its crevices.

If you have tons of books in your living room and are looking for a flexible and versatile storage furniture piece that doesn’t take up too much space, this bookcase is a good choice. There are many ways to decorate a room using this furniture. You can use it as a partition element to separate areas in a room. You can also make it an additional décor element in a bedroom or study room.

Styling a bookcase is more complex than most people think. However, it is also not considered rocket science. With the right visual balance, proportion, and styling knowledge, you can easily decorate and accessorize a bookcase properly and pleasantly. You should keep a few bookcase stylings rules in mind to do so successfully.

Layout First – If your bookcase is placed in the living room, you should keep your accessories as minimal as possible to avoid making them look disorganized. Pile a couple of books on one frame and balance it out with a décor piece. It can be a vase or a sculpture.

Display Books by Weight – The biggest and heaviest books should be placed on the bottom frames, while the smallest and thinnest ones should be on the upper frames. This is done to distribute balance and visual weight.

Organize Your Books by Colors –  If you have a library of books, make sure that your bookcase is also big enough to carry them all. If you can, it is best to arrange them based on color to look pleasant to the eye.

A Personalized Experience – To make it look visually attractive, incorporate several accessories and decorations in its compartments, such as books, picture frames, vases, figurines, and even small potted plants. Make your display of accessories unique and personalized. Add a bit of your personality and charm when decorating so that wherever you put this bookshelf, it will make the space feel more welcoming, inviting, and friendly.
