Hooker Renaissance Bookcase Hutch & Credenza

This is a magnificent piece of furniture, the perfect place to display books, art, sculpture or anything that is important to you.

The base, or credenza, has three cabinets with shelves, a perfect place for keeping things out of sight.

The bookcase hutch has three sections. Each section has a top light, concealed by the casework. There is a wood-framed, top, glass shelf and two wood shelves for four surfaces per section.

The finish is elegant distressed cherry.

Purchased in 2001 for my office as the CEO of a small non-profit company, it sat behind my desk, dominating the room at seven feet tall by six feet wide and eighteen inches deep. Alas, the company closed and my house is too small for this beautiful piece of fine furniture.

Hutch - 73 1/2 X 16 X 55 Hooker model # 052-70-167

Base - 71 3/4 X 16 X 28 Hooker model # 052-70-165

Each piece weighs about 250 lbs.
