First, assess your needs. Determine whether or not you have a massive book collection to store, a few reading materials with some artful accessories, a little of both, or maybe you just have some negative space on the wall you'd like to fill. Once you gauge what you want, it's time to go over key points for shopping for your new, multi-tasking bookcase.
Measure the space you are working with. That will help narrow down the size of bookcases to focus on in a sea of options. Be sure to measure shelf space if you choose a bookcase with fixed shelving. Factor in head room above the books as well.
Bookcases will serve the purpose you are looking to solve regardless of material. However, material does play into how long a bookcase will last as well as how easy it is to move. Solid hardwoods and metals are an investment piece and will last you longer. On the flip side, they are much heavier and more cumbersome to move. Wood veneers and plywood are common materials used in bookcases, great choices for rustic or more traditional décor themes.
3.) Adjustable Shelves.
Customize your storage and play around with different heights to suit your needs. Not all books and décor are created equal, so if you have varying sizes and want the freedom to change up your items, adjustable shelves might be the way to go.
4.) Open Back Bookcases.
Do you share a space or want to give the illusion of a larger room? An open back bookcase works well as a room divider, and it's accessible from the front and back. Open back bookcases can be placed anywhere, not just against a wall or in a corner.
5.) On Display or Hidden Away.
Consider a bookcase with doors and/or drawers to hide any unwanted clutter or items you don't want on display. Bookcases with doors are also known as bookcase cabinets. They have the added security of keeping contents concealed and dust-free. A display bookcase, or an open bookcase, is more common and not only stores your items but displays them also. If you have mementos, pictures, or art work that you love, a display bookcase is for you.
What looks good in one space may not suit another, so consider all finish options (even bold colors, if you so desire!). Have an open mind with style too. For instance, if your style is more on the modern side, you might be surprised to find that a rustic, weathered bookcase fits in perfectly.
7.) Bookcase Types.
Choice is a beautiful thing. Read on to learn more about the different types of bookcases and find the perfect fit for your space and storage.ZAVA FURNITURE – DUC TIEN CORP. TELL: 02866 831 049 HOTLINE: 0903 666 014 – Mr. Đức
Where does food end and etiquette begin?Table manners define the meaning of a meal. Eating is a physical need, but meals are a social ritual. The 150th anniversary of Mrs Beeton's book Household Management this autumn draws attention to this weird and wonderful world of manners. In many ways it is a very modern book: Mrs Beeton's recipes and kitchen tips are the kind of thing you still get in cookery books today. Maybe her language is a bit clinical: there's a chapter on how to cook "quadrupeds". But the one thing that truly places the book in the past is its advice on table manners. At a dinner party, "the lady begins to help the soup … commencing with the gentleman on her right and on her left, and continuing in the same order till all are served. It is generally established as a rule, not to ask for soup or fish twice, as in so doing, part of the company may be kept waiting for the second course." The complex rules set out by Mrs Beeton still exist (at a formal hall high table at an Oxbridge college, say), but even at the smartest restaurants, the rigorous order of Mrs Beeton's dining table is rarely preserved nowadays. It was, in fact, the culmination of hundreds of years of changing manners. The children learning their table etiquette in Chardin's 1740 painting are in the avant-garde of a cultural revolution. Cutlery, as opposed to eating with your fingers; sitting up straight in a high-backed chair; these were innovations in the way people defined themselves at table in 18th-century Europe. New meals were even invented specifically as occasions for polite manners: the English tea time dates from the 1700s and is richly illustrated in paintings by Hogarth and Devis. They show the stylised rituals of pouring the tea and holding the delicate porcelain cup. This is the height of British table manners five centuries before Mrs Beeton. And Chaucer, of course, is laughing at this over-refinement.
Some more little thingsGo back thousands of years to the early Homo sapiens who lived at Cheddar Gorge, and gnawed bones found in the cave suggest the kind of mealtimes that were enjoyed here. Oh, some of those gnawed bones are human by the way. And a cup formed from a human skull has also been found. The rich courtly gear of a Saxon king found at Sutton Hoo, meanwhile, includes a massive cauldron and drinking horns, suggesting the importance of feasting to our ancestors. But there is nothing to indicate any refinement – there is no Sutton Hoo toothpick. Only in Renaissance Europe do paintings and artefacts reveal the dawn of table manners: just to contemplate the extreme beauty and fragility of a 16th-century Venetian wine glass is to realise how sophisticated the parties were where such miraculous ware was used.
Today, it might seem as though we have returned to the sloppiness of medieval feasting, or even Cheddar Gorge.Barbecued wings and legs eaten with your hands, burgers, crostini, pizza. The finger foods of the world merge in a great casual banquet, often eaten in front of the TV. Only at restaurants is some semblance of high dining still maintained. And yet, in truth, the rise of table manners shapes our lives as firmly as it did those children painted by Chardin. We still see straight-backed chairs and laid-out cutlery as essential to a "proper" meal. We still drink out of individual glasses. We may go to Starbucks instead of rushing home for a traditional English tea, but the consumption of a latte is a stylised act. As Mrs Beeton said, all creatures eat, but "man only dines". Etiquette changes radically but it always exists. In manners as in recipes, we are not so far as we might think from her well-regulated world. ZAVA FURNITURE – DUC TIEN CORP.
