Winsborough Bookcase

Corner bookcases are a problem design-wise. The corner area is often dead space and there is no pleasing way to artfully join the timber panels.

To deal with this issue, it was decided to embrace the corner and celebrate it with a pillar design.

This bookcase sits below a painting, "Return to Jerusalem", by Nigel Brown, one of New Zealand's most celebrated artists. The geometric motifs in the painting provided inspiration for the symmetrical end grain design at the top of the pillar. Thematically, macro/microcosm is evident with the smaller segments of end grain echoing the larger shape of the pillar itself.

The back is solid, shiplapped Blackwood panelling and the corners of the bookcase are joined with hand cut dovetails. The shelving is secured in place with through wedged tenons.

A bookcase in celebration of New Zealand art, built for New Zealand homes.
