Dear AT,

I'm looking for a black bookcase to fill a narrow space in my office.

The ideal bookcase would be similar to the Riley from World Market (see picture) -- at least 6 feet tall, BUT no more than 18 inches wide (16" is even better).

Bonus points for adjustable shelves and some sort of decorative molding.

I've been looking for months and have had no luck!

A last resort is getting unfinished furniture, but even the selection there is limited (and becomes surprisingly expensive when you add in the finishing)...

I'm surprised that with all the hype about small-scaled furniture, it's still very difficult to find a basic narrow bookcase.

(Yes, I've looked at Ikea, and unfortunately, the black-brown color will not go with the rest of the furniture). Thanks! A.M
