Bookshelf

Rather self-explanatory, a bookshelf is a wooden piece of furniture with horizontal shelves to house books and other decorative items such as pictures or vases. The term is used interchangeably with bookcase — though many in the latter term have glass cases to shield books from dust. The shelves can be fixed or movable depending on the style.
