There is a fantastic collection of bookcases and shelves for those who love boats and rivers perhaps. St. Louis Loftstyle presents Bosuns Gig shelf unit, Captain Gig and Man of Eight Bookcase. Dispatched for victuals for the captain’s table or canvas for a sail blown away in a storm, gigs were invaluable when in port or moored outside. These pieces are made of natural dark wood with dark or light finish. The shape is unique and can decorate any traditional or modern study or even office. The dimensions are 12″ L x 73″ W x 27″ H. Man of Eight is inspired by racing eights – races of fraternities in Oxford, Cambridge and other old universities.
