The slim Matchbox Bookcase is designed to fit just anywhere you need it to. Like its namesake object (and the famously small Chicago watering hole), the Matchbox Bookcase derives much of its function from its size: a svelte profile and four shelf height makes it the perfect piece for a small home office, bedroom, living room, or even hallway. This bookcase is extremely sturdy and features welded bookends to keep your books in place.
We process the wood very minimally to highlight the natural patina and "imperfections" that only age and use can provide. By using recycled and recyclable materials you can be sure that this bookcase is not only easy on the eyes, but easy on the Earth as well. The base features 1.5" welded steel legs, so it can support shelves completely full of books & more! Black rubber feet on all four legs keep your floors safe from scratches.

Send us a note if you would like this piece stained to match a specific type of wood, otherwise you will receive the untreated, naturally aged wood. The color will be similar to that shown in the photos, though it may vary somewhat.
Chicagoland customers: Order any piece of furniture and we'll deliver it within 30 miles of the city for free!
NOTE: We use reclaimed wood to create this bookcase, so there will be some variations in each piece. Upon request, we will send photos of the wood for your approval before your bookcase is complete.
Each shelf gets screwed into the legs with four provided screws. There are already holes in the steel & wood, and any regular sized Phillips head screwdriver should do the trick. Nuts & bolts are provided so you can quickly secure the cross bars to the legs.
