Our Most Popular Modern Contemporary Bookcases

If you asked people their favorite aspect of shopping with Nathan James, you’d get different answers - some say its affordability, some say it's how easy our furniture is to set up. 

But, many tell us it's the diverse selection we have and the beautiful design elements we produce. We offer a great selection of minimalist bookshelves to choose from, and the perfect one for your home is just waiting for you to find it below!

The Theo Modern Ladder Shelf Series

Our Theo modern ladder shelf series is one of our most diverse, with 8 different unique options to choose from! These range from as few as 3 shelves all the way up to 6 shelves and can be mounted directly on your wall to save floor space and create a modern, minimalist look.

Color options range from gold finish with white shelves to black finish with a rustic oak or nutmeg finish. No matter what your preferences are, you’ll find that the Theo modern ladder shelf series has something for you!

The Theo Modern Bookshelf / Desk Hybrid Series

If you’re looking for the same type of aesthetic as the modern ladder shelf series but with a bit more functionality, consider the modern bookshelf desks in the Theo series.

These not only will hold your favorite books, plants, drinks, or other items you wish to store - but you can pull up a chair and work right at the desk that’s integrated into these! This saves you the money on a desk so you can stretch your furniture budget even further.

The Sawyer Minimalist Bookcase

The most affordable bookcase you’ll find on our list is the Sawyer - which starts at just under $130. It’s a four shelf bookshelf with a slim, minimalist design that will complement any room.
