The Antiques you need for a perfect World Book Day Library Renovation
World Book Day has become a popular holiday for young and old alike. Stories and fables are some of our oldest records that connect us to our ancestors. Of course, we love the stories each piece of our antique furniture tells, but there’s nothing like a classic book!
If World Book Day has inspired you to pick up the paperback once more, make sure you’re enjoying your reading in style. We offer a variety of antique furniture pieces that would look perfect in any library.

Antique Monumental Georgian Glazed Library Cabinet
Now here is a cabinet worthy of holding a mighty book collection. This piece dates back to the 19th century, around the end of the Georgian period and the beginning of the Victorian. It is made from wonderfully aged mahogany with ornate carving at the top and front feet. The feet are made from concealed brass casters, and the front lock has been replaced with a simple turn mechanism for ease of use.
You can dismantle this piece into three for easy transport, and the four inner shelves are fully adjustable. So when you’re looking for a gorgeous new home for your book collection, we cannot recommend this piece enough.
Antique Victorian Oak Throne Chair with Reading Stand
A throne fit for reading royalty! Thanks to its unique adjustable reading stand, this Victorian oak throne chair is sure to become the centrepiece of your library. This chair features a gothic influence in the carving around the sides. It has been loving reupholstered by one of its previous owners in dark green.
The condition of this piece is perfect, and your reading will be luxurious with the help of this armchair.
20th century Bronze effect lamp
This is a 20th-century lamp with a lot of charm, making it the perfect nighttime leading companion. It’s made with a thick, durable resin with a bronze effect finish. This light is fully working as is, meaning you won’t need to find a new bulb before setting this up for your next reading session. This antique light will work well on a table anywhere in the home but may just be what your library needs to lighten up the room!
