Here at Beyond Shades, we have one team member that loves to read, and thus over the years has accumulated quite a lot of books. A lot.

By a lot, that is, thousands.

Of course so many books need bookcases. The books have been in three different homes: a 2-bedroom condo, a historic 19th-century home, and a modern split-level.

Each home had its own challenge. However, different but lovely solutions were found.
