Get the lawyer look (without all the fuss of passing that pesky bar exam) with our unique edit of vintage barrister bookcases!
Also known as lawyer’s bookcases, barrister bookcases are beloved for their chic, stacked silhouette and glass front panels.
Originally, the glass front panels both protected the books as well as provided a sort of status symbol: Because not everyone in the 17th and 18th centuries could afford books, a barrister bookcase indicated wealth and education.
Today, these highly coveted bookcases are perfect to hold not only books but other knickknacks that you want to keep dust-free.
