Etagere Bookcases

We’re on the hunt for some pretty etageres for two different home offices we’re currently working on. One of the most famous etageres were designed by Billy Baldwin for Cole Porter’s library. Here’s Baldwin in his Manhattan apartment flanked by a pair of his etageres. Chic, chic, chic! bbaldwinA beautiful brass etagere looks lovely in one corner of Reese Witherspoon’s California house:etagere2Below left, Milo Baughman-inspired etageres and right, Maison Jansen style etageres:etainspoWe love how the living room below is thrown off slightly by the asymmetry of the walls on either side of the fireplace.  For many, the first instinct is to put a pair of something on either side of a fireplace whether it be a pair of demilune tables, love seats, consoles, etc. What’s great about this room is how the sides don’t match and instead symmetry is created using a pair of velvet upholstered chaises. etagere1Below, books (and bags!) artfully arranged on two different styles of brass etageres:etagerebagsWhile you can find l0t’s of great vintage and antique etageres on 1st Dibs and Ebay, we’ve narrowed down our favorite retail options below that can be ordered online and ASAP. etageresFrom left to right: Oly, Williams Sonoma Home, Crate & Barrel, Ethan Allen.
