Zoe [SH262] - $699.00 : - URBAN HOME -
Forget dull metal bookends that serve as only functional, minus the "fun" -- your at-home library deserves a little character, whether your collection includes a fond selection of your favorite fiction or a boring set of textbooks that could use a good dose of humor. Art Ori Designs is known for its clever metal works, all featuring silhouettes of different characters that bring a little life to otherwise boring household objects like napkin holders and coin trays. Their latest addition is the Falling Books Bookend, which supports your books at an angle in a way that conceals its frame, giving the illusion that your books are about to squash the tiny figures below! But don't worry -- the frame is sturdy enough to keep the cute little guys safe, and you won't have to crane your neck quite as far to read the book titles! It comes in three different colors and two shapes -- check them out at Design My World!Price: $35Who Found It: xgalexy was the first to add the Falling Books Bookends to the Hive.
Is your New Year's resolution to organize your closet, your house, your life? If the things around you in your everyday life are in order, you might find yourself with a more orderly mind as well. So we've found some great storage items to help you reduce the clutter in your home - and maybe add to its beauty at the same time! Look for furniture that does double duty, such as a trunk-style coffee table in which you can store magazines and books. Put clothing you don't use year-round under your bed and out of the way. Hang CDs and DVDs from a door with a media rack. Save space with shelves that lean against the wall instead of a bulkier bookcase. Or put up photos on an interesting wall shelf from West Elm. You're sure to clear up space and clear your head. Check out the SLIDESHOW!
