An office should be a place conducive to your work, and it should be a space that improves your productivity and thought processes.

Fort Wood Short BookcaseSmall Office Bookshelves
A smaller office space doesn’t mean you can’t get organized in style. We have several bookshelves and bookcases that are perfect for a small space and can manage your storage items efficiently. Our modular bookshelves can be put together in a number of different ways to fit even the most unusual space. Using our online tool, the Smart Designer, you can create a completely unique bookshelf that matches everything you want and need in a bookshelf. The first product we sold at Smart Furniture were our signature Smart Shelves, and we continue to believe that you should be able to find versatile bookshelves that are right for you and your space.

In addition to these flexible bookshelf options, we carry bookshelf collections like the Fort Wood Bookcases, the Classic Bookshelf, or one of our leaning bookshelves, the Eileen Shelf or the Frazier Leaning Shelf. Leaning bookshelves create added interest in a small space in the way that the shelves cascade down to the floor. At the top of the bookshelf, the shelves are more narrow, and they get deeper the closer you get to the floor. In addition to leaning bookshelves, we also carry tall and narrow bookshelves, like the Blu Dot Totem Bookcase Tower, or short and wide bookshelves like the Classic Bookshelf that comes with a 4’ wide option. To help you choose the best bookshelf for your office, consider your space and office setup and then look for a style that best suits your existing furniture and your tastes. Short and wide, or tall and narrow, we have all the bookshelf basics covered.

And if a standing bookshelf simply won't do in your space, consider one of our wall-mounted bookshelves like the Conceal Floating Bookshelf from Umbra. These bookshelves become essentially invisible once mounted on your wall and can hold between six and eight books per shelf. No matter what your office setup may look like, we are sure to have a design solution for you, and we offer complimentary design assistance to make sure you find the bookshelf you’re looking for here at Smart Furniture.

Currency WorkwallLarge Office Bookshelves
In a large office with ample wall space, a larger bookshelf may be more appropriate and will provide plenty of storage space for you to get organized in no time.

The Currency Workwall by Steelcase is an excellent bookshelf and storage solution designed for a larger office space. Steelcase made sure this bookshelf could be customized just the way you want it, offering numerous color options to fit your office’s color scheme. In addition to color, you can choose the size of your Workwall bookshelf and the shelving system can reach up to six feet tall if desired. One of the greatest features these bookshelves offer is the option of cabinet doors on some of the individual compartments. If you have some items in your office you would rather conceal, the cabinet doors are a great solution. This bookshelf is the ultimate in large office organization, giving you the added storage space you need for all of your office supplies, books, and display items.

Another one of our larger bookshelves is the LAX Series Bookshelf, a complete shelving system with a modern design that will add style to your space. This LAX Bookshelf has 25 square compartments, five rows across and five shelves high. The compartments in this bookshelf are great for storing all kinds of items for your office, whether it be books, supplies, decorative items, artwork, or other materials. These larger bookshelves give you the added space you need to keep all your items organized neatly against one wall, not to mention you’ll have the freedom to change out the items in your bookshelf whenever your office needs change. The cube shelving used in the LAX bookshelves create a clean and crisp look, bringing a sense or order and style to any large office.

An increasingly popular large bookshelf comes from Blu Dot’s Chicago Series. The Chicago Series bookshelves combine modern style with smart shelving options. The Chicago 8 Box, the larger bookshelf in the series, has eight box shelves connected with tubular steel legs to create a checkerboard type bookshelf for a large wall in your office, conference room, or lobby. One of the more unique features of the 8 Box bookshelf is the negative space that is created between the boxed shelves. You can choose to leave this space blank, only storing and displaying items in the boxes, for a clean look that more strongly incorporates the color of your office walls. Or for a different look, you can utilize the negative space to display decorative items, artwork, or other office supplies. Large bookshelves provide you not only with additional storage space, but added organization options that ensure you can find a proper place for all of your items.

4ft Wide Smart ShelvesMulti-Purpose Bookshelves
While several of our bookshelves are better suited for a smaller or larger space, we also carry a wide variety of modular bookshelves that can be tailored to fit a variety of needs.

If you decide to move your modular bookshelf to a different part of your office, you can reconfigure the individual components to a shape that is conducive to the new space. It’s also easy to add on to modular bookshelves at any time if you realize you need more storage or organizing space in your office. Over time you may need more space to display pictures or awards and store books and office supplies. Modular bookshelves can grow with you or be redesigned to fit your office needs.
