A collection of wood, iron, and rattan bookcases that range from petite to large, and featuring unique bookcases including an "A" frame and a "DNA" bookcase.

5 5 shelf maple bookcase1

Whether you use them for books, magazines, or for displaying your favorite sculptures or knick-knacks, a bookcase is something that every home needs. Luckily, bookcases come in tons of different styles, colors, and materials that will suit anyone’s sense of style.

Our featured bookcase is a lovely light maple shelf available in three, four, or five shelves, with each size falling under $100.

The majority of bookshelves you can find for under 100 dollars are modular, ready-to-assemble pieces in black, white, or espresso finishes. They tend to be sleekly designed, and many are foldable and easily portable. Most of the pieces in this collection are slim and modern, with varying shapes, including an A-frame shelf and an asymmetrical cube bookshelf.

Look for unique pieces, like the rattan-style shelf later in this collection, or the iron corner shelf.

We hope you’ll find a piece that appeals to both your sense of style and your budget.
