Mahogany is a beautiful and elegant wood that stands the test of time and is one of the best materials furniture can be made from - especially bookcases.
Bookcases make a statement whichever room they are placed in and will almost certainly prove to be a talking point - not just because of the tomes they store, but also for their design.
At Woodlands Furniture, we have a large selection of mahogany glazed bookcases in various styles and sizes. From those that reflect the elegance of Chippendale designs to those crafted in a Georgian style, you are sure to find a piece of furniture that suits your taste and interior.

The benefits of mahogany reproduction furniture
Solid mahogany is one of the best woods for furniture making due to its durability, stunning appearance and class.
This is particularly apparent when used to make a large item such as a bookcase as the craftsmanship that goes into such pieces is exquisite.
If you choose handmade mahogany glazed bookcases, you can enjoy the fact that every one will be slightly different because they are individually crafted, rather than made in large volumes on a production line.
Adding to this uniqueness is that the colour of mahogany will turn into a deep red-brown as the wood ages, which looks particularly effective and is a charming feature of these types of bookcases.
When decorating our homes, sometimes we can only dream of purchasing genuine Chippendale, Georgian, Victorian and Regency pieces, among many other eras. Such furniture dates back hundreds of years, with Thomas Chippendale Senior and Junior's work prominent in the 18th and early 19th centuries, for example.
This means they can be difficult to come by, as well as very expensive.
With mahogany reproduction furniture, you are able to enjoy the prestige of world-renowned designs at a fraction of the price, allowing you to furnish your home with beautiful glazed bookcases and other items without breaking the bank.
It is also easy to keep mahogany glazed bookcases in a good condition, especially since the wood features few voids and knots. A quick dust is all that it takes to clean finished surfaces, while the natural shine can be maintained with beeswax.
Glazed bookcases are perfect for protecting the items within, while open ones are perhaps more suitable for storing tomes. Rather than just being placed in a study, glazed bookcases can prove to be a great talking point in different rooms of a house.
When in a traditional-style kitchen, they can hold dining sets and if you purchase one with drawers, important paperwork can be safely stored.
For a piece of furniture that is as eye-catching as it is functional, why not take a look at mahogany reproduction bookcases?
