This is a custom built bookshelf so it is, unfortunately, not available anywhere. Design is pretty simple however for a good cabinet maker to make. Hope this helps. --th

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to Book Nooks--Get The Look
I love when bookshelves replace solid blocking walls between two spaces such as this. Not only is space more efficiently used, but each room is kept distinct while allowing a more open flow between.
Kit Pollard added this to Books in the Kitchen
Ah, the bookcase wall - I love it so much. And how convenient, too (though a cookbook collection that big would be pretty daunting).
John Hill added this to 24 Amazing Walls of Books
This wall of books is freestanding, acting as a divider between the kitchen and living room.
Organize a series of rooms. "When we refurbished this midcentury modern brick house, we used cabinets instead of traditional walls to organize the back entry, mudroom, kitchen, family dining booth, kitchen office/work areas — two of them — and the transition to the living and dining area," says Tom Hurt of Hurt Partners Architects. "The bookcase is made of a clear finished maple," he points out, "and parts of this cabinet system have solid panels, other parts obscured glass, and towards the rear [in this photo] is a large pin board for the kids' projects, family photos and such." The ceiling material is custom-milled clear fir, and the floor is honed Italian limestone.
