Not all shelving is meant to be designed as corner shelving. It would be impractical for a book case to be made in the corner shelving design, because there would be valuable shelf space that could not be used to store books because of the angle of the back side of the shelves. A china cabinet or hutch would pose the same design problem.
Shelves can be made out of almost anything. Glass, plastic, wood, metal and pressed wood are just a few of the options available. Many times the choice of which type of to buy is based on where the shelves will be placed. Shelves that will be seen by others are usually more decorative while shelving that is for storage can be very standard without any decoration.
Designer Tip: Lower or remove the top shelf on each book case and hang a framed print on the back of the book case... to fill in the back wall of the top shelves. Then place one or two small decorative objects on each shelf. Or remove one middle shelf (this is more ideal for narrow book cases) and display a tall object... like a vase... flower arrangement... scultpure.
