1x1 Modern

Highly Bookcase

DESCRIPTION

In our humble opinion, the Highly bookcase is one of the most dramatic pieces of furniture that we offer. We dare you not to be awed by its drama... A lot of the drama comes from the fact that the Highly bookcase is designed to stretch from floor to ceiling. You could put the Highly bookcase against a wall, but we think it would be more dramatic to place it in the middle of a room as a room divider bookcase.

After you choose wood veneer or color lacquer, you will also be able to choose the level of glossiness for the protective polyurethane coating. We offer two levels of coating glossiness: Satin and Glossy

  • Satin coating is not very reflective (more like a dull, indistinct shine) on both wood veneer or color lacquer, and is generally a good choice for most household furniture and would complement well the other furniture you have.
  • Glossy coating is very reflective (like very shiny nail polish), and that is good for accent piece or special pieces that you might want to make stand out. Glossy coating on a big piece of furniture can look a little overwhelming, however.

Nickel Satin Brushed Steel: Because of the way the steel supports of the Highly bookcase are made, they are only available in the nickel satin brushed steel finish.

 

FAQs

What are the dimensions of the Highly bookcase?

The Highly bookcase is custom made to your size specifications, so it can be any dimension you want, anywhere from as small as 30 cm (11.8 inches) wide by 30 cm (11.8 inches) deep by 80 cm (31.5 inches) high, to as large as 150 cm (59.1 inch) wide by 50 cm (19.7 inches) deep by 300 cm (118.1 inches) high.

For the Highly bookcase with "Extended" sides, measure the Width as the entire length of the shelf. The steel support structure would run 20 cm (7.9 inches) in from the side edges.

For the Highly bookcase with "Enclosed" sides, measure the  Width as shown below.

PLEASE NOTE: For the Highly bookcase to fit in your room, the Height you specify should be the distance from the floor to the ceiling. The steel structure that attaches to the ceiling provides you with a wiggle room of plus or minus an inch (2.5 cm), so that even if you are slightly off in your Height measurement, you should be able to fit your Highly bookcase in your room.

If the Height you specify is less than 180 cm (about 6 feet), then we will omit the steel structure that attaches to the ceiling, at which point the Highly bookcase would be a free standing bookcase meant to be pushed against a wall. Also, if the Height is less than 100 cm (about 3 feet), then that is the height of a console, and we'd suggest you check out the Warmly console or sofa table.

What is the shelf spacing for the Highly bookcase?

We will place the shelves about 25 cm (9.8 inches) to 35 cm (13.8 inches) apart depending on the Height you specify, so that there are regularly spaced shelves in your Highly bookcase.

Are the shelves of the Highly bookcase movable?

No. The shelves of the Highly bookcase are attached to the steel support structure and they are not movable or adjustable.

How can I create a wall of Highly bookcase?

Depending on the sides you want (whether "Extended" or "Enclosed"), you would need to order several Highly bookcases.

Is the Highly bookcase custom-made, made-to-measure furniture?

As with any 1x1 Modern furniture, the Highly bookcase is custom made to your specifications in terms of size (anywhere from as small as 30 cm (11.8 inches) wide by 30 cm (11.8 inches) deep by 80 cm (31.5 inches) high, to as large as 150 cm (59.1 inch) wide by 50 cm (19.7 inches) deep by 300 cm (118.1 inches) high), and finish (wood veneer or color lacquer, glossy or satin coating) for the shelves. Because of the way the sturdy support structure of the Highly bookcase is made, the steel support is only available in the nickel satin brushed steel finish, which, in our opinion, it looks great with.

We realize that the Highly bookcase can be made quite small, at which point it would be more of a console than a bookcase.

Is the Highly bookcase finished on all four sides?

Yes. All the sides of the shelves of the Highly bookcase are finished with your choice of wood veneer or color lacquer, so you could use the Highly bookcase as a room divider if you want. For your safety, please ensure that the Highly bookcase is attached to the ceiling as securely as possible using appropriate hardware.

How long does it take to make and deliver the Highly bookcase?

Generally, it takes about 5 to 7 weeks for us to make this furniture and have it delivered to you, although there might be circumstances where we might be able to have it done sooner or later. We will constantly keep you updated on its status throughout the process. If for any reason we cannot deliver it to you in 12 weeks or less, then we will offer you the option to cancel the order for a full refund.

Can the Highly bookcase be made a little differently one way or another?

Yes, of course. We are a custom furniture company. Please contact us and just let us know.
