Dark wood bookcases fit in with a variety of color palettes. Cherry or walnut bookshelves make a big impact against beige or white walls, while a dark wood bookcase in cappuccino works well alongside cool or warm furniture, like a teal accent chair or a terracotta loveseat.
In studio apartments, dark wood bookcases can also function as room dividers. Look for tall backless models with multiple compartments to hold vases, potted plants or storage baskets. If you have a large family room, use a dark wood bookcase to create a separate area for a home office or a quiet reading nook.
