Top Five Bookends for Young and Not so Young Adults

Richard Artschwager, bookends, 1990. New York Collection Walker Art Center. Not for sale reason why are not included in top five.

Hola from the darkness!

No, I have not forgotten about you. I was just finishing my graduate studies and was sucked right away into a few intense interior design projects.

So Christmas is here, once again, and you may wonder what on earth to give to that young adult of yours. Well, let me tell you, young adults and not so young adults are now becoming more aware of design and still have needs at home such as having a shelf to hold books. Believe it or not, many adults still hold to that bit of history called a nice book to read or a helpful cooking/wine book. Personally, I am in the market for a pair of bookends and have increasingly become aware of their need and beauty.

Here are my top five bookends for people who cannot spend a fortune, yet appreciate a touch of design at home. ~order is irrelevant~
