The low-profile Dexter bookcase is a unique addition to your home’s office or den. It offers ample space to store your books or other items, and boasts a number of features that enhance its visual appeal. Like all our furniture, it is handmade by a team of skilled Amish artisans and can be counted on for a lifetime of use.
The Dexter’s most notable characteristic is the X-shape design on its sides. A refreshing alternative to conventional bookcases, the Dexter is distinctive without being overly showy, and will fit in with both traditional and modern furniture.
Quality construction is evident throughout the Dexter. Its shelves and top are made from solid wood and fixed in place for added stability. All told, the piece measures 32 inches wide by 14 inches deep by 30 inches high — small enough to fit comfortably into a crowded home office or other room.
We offer the Dexter bookcase in oak, cherry, brown maple and quartersawn white oak. All materials are carefully chosen for their quality and stained the color of your choice. Options include a natural finish that highlights the beauty of the wood, or darker tones such as the Coffee, Ashbury and Acres stains. Because all our furniture is made to order, you have the freedom to create the piece you want — our team can accommodate additional modifications upon request.
Purchase the Dexter bookcase as part of a complete furniture set to qualify for discounts of up to 33 percent off retail pricing. For more information or to request a quote, contact the AmishOutletStore.com office directly.
