If you associate rotating bookshelves strictly with stores and waiting rooms, think again.  Sure-fire conversation pieces for your living room or study, custom bookcases designed to stand away from the walls can function as multi-faceted room dividers and provide plenty of storage with a compact footprint.

Ron Schroeder of Wisconsin Wood Products built this cherry and ash rotating bookcase for a customer who wanted something you couldn’t buy in a furniture store.  The artisan obliged him with a piece that features three roomy 14” tall tiers that rotate independently atop a lower cabinet with a dovetailed soft-close drawer and a pull-out shelf.

This summer, Design by Jeff Spugnardi introduces the “Cyndy Three Six”rotating bookcase.  Ready to spin on a lazy Susan device rated to support 1,000 lbs., these four 14” wide and deep shelves can hold books or LPs.  The beautiful full dovetail construction ensures this unit will serve you well for many years.

The modern helical shelves by City Joinery can fit in your home in many ways. “This set of shelves for books or objects,” writes furniture maker Jonah Zuckerman, “is designed to serve as a room divider, filtering the space between a living and dining area, for example. It also sits well in a corner, perhaps at the end of a couch or bed, its rotation allowing access to all levels.”  The set shown here is made from poplar and blackened steel, but many wood and metal options are available, as well as custom sizing.

In 2007, Glendon Good Custom Fabricating designed, built, and installed the fixtures, displays, and lighting for the Mesa Arts Center Museum Store, including these aluminum and bamboo bookcases.  With the addition of optional locking rubber wheels to these shelves, you, too, can have stylish, mobile, and versatile display and storage space, constructed from renewable and recyclable resources, that’s perfect for either retail locations or home offices.
