This is what I have been looking for but the extensions are usually too long for my corner bookcases. Do you know the length of the arms? They have not been modified have they?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to New Classics: The Boston Library Light
Here is the classic use: one-arm versions lighting the books in a library.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to Luxuriate in a Gentlemen's Club Look at Home
A conversation-style seating arrangement has a masculine backdrop of books and a custom-crafted gun case. Note the strong black and white geometric pattern of the rug. When black is used in a floor covering it visually anchors the space while drawing the eye from the floor up to the ceiling.
