Are these bookshelves part of a shelving system or custom made? - If part of a shelving system for sale, where can I purchase it?

It appears as though the back of the bookcase is the wall. Are the shelves attached to the wall and how? Also what is the widest span to be strong enough to hold books without sagging?

I think usually you would want to be sure to attach furniture of this size to the wall for safety reasons, but that might be my California earthquake country talking.

The strength of the shelves will depend on the type and thickness of the wood. I'd talk to a carpenter and they can probably point you towards some good options.

Try Valspar's Caraway Seed (3005-9C) and Valspar's Redstone Lasso (3006-9B) for a similar color combination.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lily Gahagan added this to 7 Stately Study Essentials
1. A leather armchair. A wingback feels particularly perfect for a study, but feel free to think outside the box...
Becky Harris added this to Get Ideas for a Cozy Library Space
How often do you use your formal dining room? If it collects a lot of dust in between dinner parties, why not warm it up with your book collection?
John Hill added this to 24 Amazing Walls of Books
This smaller space also has bookshelves facing each other, though one side is punctured by a doorway. I like the way relief is brought to the book through double-height openings that are used for artifacts, such as a globe.
Jason Ball Interiors, LLC added this to Old Dining Room, New Use
2. Will you need to make structural changes? As always, the function of the room determines what you need in the space. So think about use and plan ahead accordingly. For example:Storage: If you're designing a library or home office, you may want to work with a cabinet maker to build bookcases or a desk storage system. Lighting and electricity: Consider the layout of the new room and ensure that you have the proper type of lighting and access to power outlets in the right locations. Privacy: If you're creating a home office for your burgeoning business, do you need doors for additional privacy or to be able to lock your new office?By the way, I love how this particular room could easily be used as a dining room, even though its new purpose is something completely different. What a fantastic evening meal you'd have in a library like this one.
Shane D. Inman added this to Designer's Touch: 10 Divine Dining Rooms
8. Dining with the authors. This small dining space mixed with wall-to-wall shelving for books is both a library and a dining room. What a novel idea for those who love to be surrounded by books.
Laura Gaskill added this to 12 Ways Art and Books Can Tell Your Story
4. Turn your dining room into a library. Fill the walls with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and amp up the cushy reading room feel with an upholstered armchair at the head of the table. Want to really go the distance? Bring in a library ladder to reach the highest shelves.
Becky Harris added this to 20 of the Coziest Dining Rooms on Houzz
The dining room and library combo is a surefire way to make a comfortable multipurpose room. This one gets bonus coziness points for heavy drapes and cushy host and hostess chairs.
Nicole White Designs Inc added this to When Your Dining Table Is a Workspace
Why stop with just a few books? This dining room doubles as a full-scale library, with walls lined corner to corner with shelves. Tip: A room like this, which is less formal than your average dining room, is a great opportunity to mix and match tables and chairs. The wooden table will withstand the inevitable scuff marks from daily homework projects. Upholstered armchairs, like the pair shown here, are ideal for dining and provide sufficient comfort for reading and working.
5. Hang superthick drapes. Nice, thick fabrics, like velvet, especially when lined for extra warmth, do a good job of stopping drafts from seeping through windows into your rooms. Want even more warmth? Start with blinds or shades and layer heavy drapes on top.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Single Design Moves That Make the Whole Dining Room
When is a dining room more than a dining room? When it is turned into a library-cum-study by the addition of bookshelves. I want to pour a glass of wine, choose a book off those shelves and wriggle into the leather chair. Bookshelves may seem like a big single item, but imagine this room without them!More: Single Design Moves That Make the Whole Bedroom
