Every home is much improved when it’s filled with well loved books. I admire any well styled bookcase that incorporates found objects and also smart, stylish bookends. Not just for function, bookends are that fabulous opportunity to inject sophistication or whimsy, or to tell a story about travel adventures or place your personal style on display.
Bookshelves make themselves at home in so many spaces from living and family rooms, to offices and even dining rooms, so why not give them a dose of style with unique and decorative bookends that blend with your décor. Here’s a roundup of bookends from fun to fabulous to consider for your bookcases at home.
