Product Spotlight: Shelving


While the definition of a bookcase is a piece of furniture consisting of shelves to hold books, we all know this ubiquitous piece of furniture plays a much more expansive role in our lives. Displaying books, records, special sentimental objects, plants and everything in between, the bookcase can easily be one of the most versatile pieces of furniture in a home. At Chilton Furniture, we have added a number of new, originally designed shelving options to bring this piece of furniture to life in your home. 

Chilton Furniture is committed to creating timeless, original designs with our builder partners. All of the bookcases highlighted below are designed and handcrafted in Maine.

Tall and short Ricker Shelves in cherry wood

The rounded sides of the Ricker Shelf create an unbound top shelf that begs to proudly display your prized items. Round tapered legs offer a nod to mid-century modern design and are securely attached for lifelong use with mortise and tenon joinery. The Ricker Shelf is available in two height options and four wood species.

The Lubec Shelf was designed with simple lines in mind. Clean mitered corners and breadboard bases create a touch of contrast to this straightforward bookcase. It is available in two height options, four wood species, and with a back or backless.

Avery Shelf styled as dining hutch with dishes

The feature characteristic of the Avery Shelf is the step-back top that gives dimension to the overall look. With the step-back top, the Avery Shelf straddles the line between bookcase and dining hutch, and could seamlessly be used in either situation. Rounded corners soften the appearance of this versatile shelf. The Avery Shelf is available in four wood species and can be ordered with or without doors on the bottom half.

With traditional tapered legs and under-beveled edges creating a streamlined top shelf, the Shaker Bookcase showcases the simplicity of Shaker inspired design. It is available in five heights and five wood species. 

With a wide range of new shelving options, find the bookcase that works best for your space. Visit our showrooms to view the bookcases in person and call or message to inquire about current availability.

Chilton Delivery Map

"The delivery service was wonderful. All the furniture was wrapped to protect it from any damage. Chris and Chad did a great job unwrapping and carefully assembled and set everything up where we wanted it ... They did a great clean up afterwards. They made sure that we were happy with the furniture and its positioning before they would leave. Thank you!" - Tom & Cathy K.
