I see barrister bookshelves, also known as a lawyer bookcase, at antique stores all the time. Until I really wanted one! I'm hung up on the idea of a barrister bookshelf for a client bathroom. Wouldn't it make a great a linen cabinet? I love the height and scale they usually come in. It would be the perfect amount ofstorage for towels and toiletries with display on the top.
Originally design for....you guessed it, Barristers, they have a glass front and each section is movable to allow the barrister to travel with the only the selection of books they needed.
If you see one let me know!
