They Say:

Great Little Trading Company (GLTC) aims to ensure every family home is a happy and fabulous place by creating functional furniture and inspirational toys. They understand what parents need to ensure the best for their children: to nurture them in a lovely home, to inspire them with creative play and to support their learning at school. An award winning online retailer, GLTC understands that there is no need to give up good looks for practicality, therefore they design stylish, space saving storage systems, toy boxes, play tables, bookcases and more to ensure every part of the home is looked after.

• The Greenaway bookcase is a simple yet innovative design which provides functionality, simple assembly and meets every family’s storage needs.

• Books can be forward facing, meaning that children (including non-readers) can recognise books by the cover, rather than the spine, allowing them to easily find their favourite book. 

• With a simply designed sturdy frame, the Greenaway bookcase not only looks supreme but is practical too - at a height of 118cm, and available in two width sizes, the shelves are perfect for all ages, with the larger shelf being perfect for younger children’s picture books. 

• At a depth of 12cm, the shelves are deep enough to hold several books and the low shelves can be easily reached, even by toddlers, so that they can select books themselves. 

• Exclusively designed by GLTC with family living in mind, this shelving unit, in white and made from durable MDF, will fit into any colour scheme and is ideal for getting books tidied away and off the floor. When floor space is a premium, this stylish bookcase can also be mounted to the wall. 

Judges Comments:

"A great way to display books - the design is functional and plain, so shows off the real stars of the show: the books."
