Style Inspiration: Barrister Bookcases For Every Room

March 21, 2019

Hale Heritage Barrister Bookcases in white finish provide classic storage in the kitchen

The stately Barrister Bookcase, with its elegant sliding glass door shelves, is the epitome of a traditional law office. The tiered shelves, filled with towers of well-read classics, law journals and literary collections, evoke a reverence to higher learning and studious research.

Many of our shoppers replicate this classic look at home, using Barrister Bookcases to add serious style to a study or library. Other shoppers take a more casual approach, spotlighting the Barrister Bookcase’s versatility and modular design in just about every room in the home.

The Hale Barrister Bookcase’s interchangeable, stacking shelf sections and wide variety of wood finishes make it easy to fit in any room. Check out these Barrister Bookcases at home:
