Lucy & Co Perfect Adjustable Shelving

In the 1880's Arthur Lambert teamed up with W Lucy & Co, an iron and steel fabricator in Oxford to manufacture the 'Perfect Adjustable Shelving system. Strong steel upright columns feature continuous grooves to carry shelf brackets that adjust to a desired height and then lock into any place. Metal book shelves were also deemed better than wood because they allowed more air circulation, lower humidity and reduced risks of insect infestations and moulds in paper.

Lambert's shelving was installed in many prominent institutions such as the Bodleian Library in Oxford, the Linnean Society and at the Patent Office on Chancery Lane.

Our shelving units are extremely versatile as they can be configured in numerous ways; bookshelves, clothes hanging, home and shop use etc. 

We have installed the Patent Shelving in many homes and shops, proving that Lambert's design offers flexibility and a practical solution for contemporary living.
