Make an intimate home library with Amish handcrafted furniture

by Tom Grimes

Many homeowners may find that they don't have enough time in the day to read, even when nothing seems quite as appealing as sitting down with a good book. Those who are interested in trying to get a little more literature in their lives may want to consider designing a cozy nook that is conducive to the habit.

A reading corner doesn't have to be a full-scale library. In fact, it can consist of little more than a chair and a reading light. However, to really distinguish the space from the rest of the room, one should think about placing a bookcase in the area.

The handsome, traditional appearance of Amish handcrafted furniture can be ideal for making a special reading place feel complete. An Amish bookcase acts as a subtle and graceful focal point for any home library and can be a great place for one to place collectibles and other notable antiques.

Homeowners looking for multi-functional pieces may consider the American Mission Bridge entertainment center, which features spacious drawers, symmetrical bookshelves and a large space for a television, in addition to book shelves.

For a simple and elegant touch, the beautiful Shaker Style bookcase offers shelves and cabinet space for other accessories.
