I think vitsoe would be a better bet for those alcoves

I don't agree I do like Vitsoe but it looks better in modern or mid century houses. I saw a pic of it in an arch full of books and it didn't look great.

Yeah it looks cool just not what I'm looking for.

Had some v cheap scaffolding board shelves made for my alcoves for books - why not just put up some shelves you like? Having a unit like that in the archive won't look good imo, especially with the flat top in the round alcove.
Nice fireplace by the way, those tiles OG?

Mine or 70’s? The tiles and fireplace are both original

Good shout that it is too tall though would be a shame to cut it down too.

for what its worth Id just mirror the built in you have on the other side, I think if you put a non custom made unit in that space with the arch top it will always look cramped and awkward. mirroring the unit will give symmetry and then you have a surface you can place object/objects on as you please and the arch will frame nicely in my opinion.
I love vitsoe but I also dont think it will work in that space, as the arch makes it feel like a feature, which its not really supposed to be.

I think seenmy is right, unit at the bottom to mirror the other side with some shelving above it

They won’t be cheap, Emily’shouse sell similar and they tend to be around the £1k mark
