This revolving book case was commissioned as a surprise birthday present for a home office. Our client was after a fairly classic, well-built piece of furniture for her husband and complete discretion until the official unveiling. We were also working on their kitchen at the time, and the book case was an additional order.


The finished design is simple, elegant and practical. The piece has been designed and made to be sturdy and solid – virtues needed when it will be holding books on each side, as well as being able to revolve.

The delivery date and time was carefully planned and the surprise was kept until the appropriate time and both our client and her husband were delighted with the finished product.
