A closer look at Carter

In a mix of oak and steel, Carter’s got an industrial feel, but its slim shape makes it timeless. This bookcase is sturdily built, but has a narrow frame – that means it holds a lot and you can also use it as a room divider. It comes in two widths, with six shelves placed unevenly for different-sized books.

The materials

We use oak for its beautiful grain, its durability and its sense of heritage (we’ve written more on its qualities here). Knots and variations in tone are part of its character, so every piece will be unique. In combination with the steel base, it takes on a rougher, tougher feel.

The finish

The oak goes through a seven-step process of brushing, staining and buffing to highlight its natural grain. It’s then protected with our IsoGuard® treatment oil in Vintage Oak, which guards against dirt and scuffs while giving it a deeper tone that works well with steel. The metal’s powder-coated so it’s almost black, but with a hint of bronze – a finish that’s designed to age well, even after it’s had a few scratches.

Design details

As metal frames can be hard on all kinds of floors, we’ve given Carter tiny rubber feet so you don’t have to worry about it catching on anything. It also comes with fixings so you can secure it to a wall.

Where we see it

You can use Carter on its own, or combine multiples to create a larger piece that suits your space. When doing this, we tend to use the different sizes together (such as two slim and one wide, or vice versa) to vary the pace.

Need to knows

You don’t have to secure this bookcase to the wall, but it’s something we recommend, especially if you have children or pets.

Carter’s shelves are fixed in place, but we’ve placed them at varying heights so you’ll have space for both small and large objects.

Carter’s made from natural timber, which will expand and shrink slightly as it responds to the humidity and temperature in your room. We’ve used joinery techniques that’ll help to counteract this, but small changes are completely natural. In the unlikely event that there’s a significant change to the structure, we’ll be here to help.

Taking care of Carter

We’ve put together a series of guides on how best to take care of our pieces, so you can keep them looking as good as the day you first brought them home.
