Derived from France and defined as a piece of furniture with a number of open shelves for displaying ornaments, the Etagere is currently all the rage in the design world…I am seeing it everywhere and I happen to love it! These handsome shelving units come in an array of finishes from rod iron, to aged bronze to antique brass to wood…and they are fabulously stylish! This beautiful piece became popular in the nineteenth century for displaying knickknacks which was typical in Victorian home decor…and is still being utilized the same way today in every genre of design….just look at the variety…
Not only do these attractive pieces add flare and interest to a space, they also provide function for storage…a place to preserve books or collectibles…brilliant! Of course, anything I can style makes my heart flutter so these fun and funky pieces are special to me:) Could your home use an Etagere?
Yours in design,
