spine bookcase from hold everything (lower photo)–the cheaper version ($145) of the dwr original ($198 to $250, upper photo).i don’t want a full bookcase in my living room. this is a nice solution; does not take up too much space horizontally; can be used in tight nooks/corners in the room. i’ll wait for it to go on sale. i could use two black ones–one for the living room and another for the kitchen.
i also bought these nesting tables from west elm. i think i will use them in the kitchen, the corner near the window–for my mini component/radio and cookbooks. they were on sale. just $79.
