Good Questions: Where Can We Find a Short Bookcase?

AT:SF, We've just moved into an little apartment with great, large windows in the living room. After looking around a bit, we decided that a short bookcase underneath the windows, with room for plants on top, would be an efficient and pretty use of the space. The problem is, we can't find one low enough that fits our needs, and we're not sure where else to look...

...The largest piece (or combination of pieces) we could have there is 24" high, 110" wide. There is a
heater vent there that may be in use a couple of months each year, so it would optimally be something that could be partly moved aside or has an open back. Our other furniture is medium-colored mid-century
modern (mostly family heirlooms or estate-sale finds) so similarly clean lines are important.

We're just starting out and we're trying to avoid going the Ikea route, but Design Within Reach is, well, not at the moment. Any ideas or stores to suggest? Thanks!
