Inspired by an early 19th century English bookcase design, this was made specially for contemporary lifestyles.  The top remains stationary as the bookcase section revolves, and is sturdy enough to handle significant weight on the top.  The columns are ebonized mahogany with Ionic capitals, and serve as the handhold to rotate the bookcase.
