Library Ladders for commercial use

Library Ladders for commercial use

We work closely with interior designers, architects and developers to specify our products for commercial use in a whole range of spaces.

Our rolling and hook over library ladders have become increasingly popular as a practical solution for reaching high shelving whilst adding a unique style feature at the same time. 

They can be seen in restaurants, hotels, coffee shops, brasseries, hairdressers, distilleries, wine merchants, interiors showrooms and much more. We supplied a record length of rails that wrapped around all four walls in a large library in London!

Brave Design at the Port Hotel - as seen in Elle Deco

The sleepy seaside town of Eastbourne wasn’t the obvious choice to launch a chic boutique hotel with an interior you might find in Manhattan or Miami. Designer Imraan Ismail chose a full rolling library ladder in a raw finish for the bar area. The simplicity of the black rail and horizontals of the rungs works in complete harmony with the geometry of the bar design, rows of bottles and shimmering pink disc as the focal point.

‘Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful’ William Morris. Library ladders are more popular than ever as they combine practicality with style. They burst back into our interiors consciousness around four years ago, becoming an instant hit. But far from being a fleeting trend, savvy homeowners are realising their value in almost every room in the house.

The sky's the limit with our rolling library ladders

The sky's the limit with our rolling library ladders

The classic rolling library ladder often evokes images of majestic libraries, full of epic bookshelves, and maybe Belle sing-songing about escaping her provincial life. But they can be used for a great variety of purposes – from straight utilitarian practicality, or adding a unique sense of design and room architecture.
