Are all your favorite books and magazines in need of a designated space? Laurel Crown's mahogany book trough may just be the solution for your home. In keeping with traditional construction techniques, our talented team of craftsmen carve, sand, and finish each Georgian book trough entirely by hand to ensure the utmost authenticity. Whether used to keep your reading materials within easy reach of the living room couch or add a thoughtful touch to your water closet, you will soon revitalize a love of reading for anyone who visits your home.
Georgian furniture is traditionally made of mahogany, so we use only the finest plantation-grown Honduran mahogany we could find to construct each antique book trough with special attention to ornamentation. This classic mahogany book trough features the same beautiful brown coloration and pleasing straight grain that you might expect from an authentic Georgian antique. This faithful reproduction has been polished with our signature satin semi-gloss finish to protect the wood's color and quality for many years to come.
Every antique book trough features an array of details:
- Narrow top shelf to display your first editions and collectibles
- Five partitions to help you catalog your favorite reading materials
- Hand-carved cross brace and long, straight legs that terminate to pad feet
Old-world simplicity lends to superior craftsmanship that will make this Georgian book trough an heirloom worth passing on to future generations. If you love the look of our antique book trough but a mahogany finish won't exactly complement the other wood tones in your home, you can customize the finish for an additional cost. Our selection of custom finishes includes cherry, oak, pine, rosewood, and walnut, just to name a few. Please feel free to contact us with any questions!
