They come in a big quantity of different materials such as wood, metal, resin or plastic material that will go with nearly any decor you might have. Some are designed to either stand upright or laid down on its side to provide a longer and shorter divider. You can even find an unfinished bookcase and paint or stain it to match your existing furniture.
