I believe the shelves are maple. Don't know the stain, it was selected by the homeowner and contractor.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

2. Is it your weakness? We all have our loves and obsessions. For me, it is books. I can't walk past a bookstore without going in, and I can't seem to leave one without buying something. But simply being aware of what your weakness is will help strengthen your resolve when you need to. For example, over time I've come to realize that nonfiction books are the ones I most like to keep permanently, so I try to check out current fiction from the library instead.
Samantha Schoech added this to What Would You Do With an Extra Room?
A home library? Is your book collection in teetering piles against the wall? Is your idea of a good time a few hours of quiet solitude with a good book? Floor-to-ceiliing built-ins, a sliding ladder and a good reading chair would do nicely.
Becky Harris added this to 20 of the Coziest Home Offices on Houzz
A cozy library vibe includes warm wood floor-to-ceiling shelves stuffed with books and a comfortable leather chair for reading.
