Rustic Boat Bookcase


Rustic Boat Bookcase

Rustic Boat Bookcase

From £85 - available in three sizes.

These beautiful hand carved rustic boat bookcases will bring an old world feeling of the sea in to any room and are made in Indonesia from Albesia wood, which is a fast growing sustainable tree which can grow to 70 feet in just a few years and is found all over South East Asia. These pieces of nautical furniture have been lightly painted brown but can also be bought in a rustic lighter brown colour or painted white. Great for books and other home ornaments as well as making a great nautical feauture in any nautical themed bedroom or lounge.

These boat bookcases are a little less ornate than the boat bookcases featured below with oars but serve a very practical purpose due to the size of the shelves and the boat bookcases themselves. We tend to sell these more to customers in pairs as a complete room theme and also sell them on to retailers as they are a perfect way of displaying retail products as well as books. The rustic colour tends to sell best but for no extra charge we will paint these white for you "in house". The large ones are a whopping 197 centimetres high and even the smallest are a respectable 97 centimetres in height. The small one has the one shelf as well as the base shelf and the medium and large ones have two shelves as well as the base. Practical and attractive nautical furnishings and these look really good in white with our large shells displayed. These are a made from natural wood and as such, there will be blemishes and some uneveness in the design, however the overall effect is stunning. Great piece of nautical furniture as beach house furnishing or nautical office design.

Beach Hut Wall Shelf Unit - DG9074

Beach Hut Wall Shelf Unit

Wooden old England style beach hut wall shelf unit and the term we use - beach hut - doesn't really refer to this having the shape or style of a beach hut but having the look to fit perfectly into a beach hut or nautically themed room.

These nautical style cupboards are 83 cms high and 65 cms wide and have a depth coming off the wall of 20 cms. The Beach Hut Wall Shelf Unit is great for storing or displaying your seaside inspired ornaments.

These arrive assembled and row boat nautical furniture will add a maritime theme to practically any room in the house. Having shelves, you are of course purchasing a practical piece of nautical furniture too. We do have to add a small disclaimer regarding these boat bookcases being for use as seaside furnishings and they are not for sailing or to be considered using for sailing in. Not even in the bathroom please.

Wooden Boat Shelf with Hooks

Wooden Boat Shelf with Hooks

Wooden Boat Shelf With Hooks

This wooden boat style shelf with hooks is a very popular item both online and in the shop. It looks great in any nautically themed hallway or kitchen. One of our recommended lines but tricky to photograph! These shelves have 4 hooks and measure 63 cms in length with the depth of approximately 38 cms so a dual purpose boat for storing and hanging! Not deep or long enough to interfere with the hallway and we have had customers placing one of these above the other, so a small discount for two. Makes a great boat shelf for toiletries in a nauitcal bathroom.
