Martin Furniture makes furniture for offices, homes and hotels. They came across my radar because I am looking at book shelves. They make really tall bookcases that have a ladder. They are available on Amazon and the reviews are really good. They also have some that show up on Amazon Clearance at a lot lower price.
The ladder helps you reach the books on the top, but mostly it just looks really cool!
The Avondale book cases are 94” tall. That’s nearly 8 feet tall! We have 9-foot ceilings, so that would be great! The regular bookcase and the bookcase are 40” wide. The shelves with a sliding barn doors are four feet wide, but are only 6 feet tall.
The Avondale Collection also has triangular end pieces that you could use to finish the shelves off. And they have a piece to fill the corner.
Martin Furniture Avondale Collection
From the steel rails and exposed wheels to the mortise and tenon details, Avondale speaks to simplicity. The weathered oak finish is distressed to deliberately highlight its age and compliments the basic barn door style with heavy plank tops and timber legs. Avondale’s classic look with rustic wood and authentic hardware has clearly withstood the test of time.
The collection comes in two finishes, Weathered Oak and Rustic Gray. I prefer the warmer tones of the Weathered Oak.
