An award winning bookshelf

We were chuffed when Good Design made us a winner, but this isn’t just a head turner. With three sizes that can be assembled in minutes, the Koala Timber Bookshelf is suited to any Aussie home.

No More Space Invaders

It’s Your Life, on Display.

Our Koala Timber Bookshelf is a game changer. Featuring bold, open-timber shelving that can be assembled with no tools in under 10-minutes – it’s got the space you need to proudly display your favourite items, and a closed lower section to help put away the odd stuff (like that weird old cord collection we all have hanging around).

Throw the Book at It

A Bold and Beautiful Timber Frame.

Whether you’re displaying your records, books, photos or figurines – the Koala Timber Bookshelf gives you the perfect display space. Our tough timber frame is the perfect long-term frame for your life’s collections.

Choose Your Own Adventure

It’s Your Say on What to Display.

You know that weird box of stuff that follows you from house to house? Well now it’s got a home, out of sight, with our closed-shelving lower section, helping you sort the riff from the raff.

Made to Move. Built to Last

Hassle-Free, No-Tool Assembly.

We know what it’s like putting together other bookshelves. You start happy and full of promise, and finish a broken shell of a human. Well enough of that. Our bookshelves feature fast, no tool assembly. Seriously. And it’s just as easy to take apart. All that and a 5-year warranty make this the perfect piece for your house. Case closed.

Beauty Of Eucalyptus

It's furniture to be spoken about.

The beauty of eucalyptus lies in its natural variations. Like a fingerprint or a snowflake, no piece of eucalyptus is the same, so no 2 Koala bookshelves will be the same, giving you a bespoke piece of furniture, without the bespoke price tag.

The Good Wood

Built Responsibly.

Don't stress! Koala uses only PEFC Certified timber in our bookshelves - so we're looking out for the planet while you're looking at your book collection. Koala is committed to making the Earth a better place, and PEFC Certified timber from sustainably managed forests ticks all the boxes for us.

Risk Free
