A bookshelf is undeniably a central staple to the country house style, and there’s no better way to compliment a welcoming country-esque vibe than with an aesthetic collection of classic literature and antique books. Given that country house designs predominantly utilise warm colours, wood and rustic textiles, natural materials and organic shapes, a wooden bookshelf with 18th century, 19th century, and early 20th century books summarises everything the trend stands for. It originated in the early 18th century, after all, so without these books you’d really be missing a trick.
Not only are our vintage book collections ideal for a country house home, but they are also a perfect choice for what the style conveys. A country house home is all about being natural, earthy and environmentally friendly - and one of our core messages is that no book should ever end up in a landfill. That’s why these beautiful vintage books are all reused, secondhand, and vintage by nature, complimenting and staying true to an eco-friendly design choice.
