Book Inspired Home Decor

Check out these amazing pieces of pieces of furniture inspired by, yep you guessed it, BOOKS!

How cool is this? A bit pricey at $899.00 (on sale from $995.00), but a girl can dream, can't she?

Nettlestone Library Ensemble

In the true tradition of fine European trompe l’oeil wooden furniture

What initially appears to be a bookshelf slides apart to reveal a library table with two tone-on-tone cushioned barrel chairs on casters and hidden compartments for your coveted first editions! The extraordinary, hand-painted, lacquer-finished top is faux burled wood with an ebony trim. Whether you choose it for its sleek, space-saving design or its elegant and novel style, this wooden heirloom will garner compliments in home or office.

I have the perfect spot for this lovely...

 The Lord Byron Wooden Side Table
This distinctive piece will speak volumes of your style and of your love of literature!

Our Toscano-exclusive trompe l’oeil side table “fools the eye” with its intricately hand-painted volumes that create a wooden work of furniture art. Faux books with authentic metal pulls slide out to reveal a single drawer, while others open as double doors for convenient storage near a favorite chair or in an entryway. This clever addition to any room is truly part fun and part function that’s perfect for the most avid bibliophile! Simple assembly required. Shown with our William Shakespeare Sculptural Bust.

22"Wx14"Dx28"H. 48 lbs.

This table reminds me of the DIY Floor Lamp that I wrote about a while back.

Power of Books Sculptural Glass-Topped Side Table
What’s more appropriate in an English-style library than a tower of artistically stacked books? If you have a penchant for the literary, add our Toscano-exclusive table next to your favorite reading chair! Cast in quality designer resin and hand-painted in a delightful, antique patina, our unique table is sculpted 360-degrees and topped with a 3/8”-thick pencil-edged glass top to be admired from all angles.

16"dia.x21"H. 22 lbs.

 Don't you just love this?

Chaucer Wooden Book Side Table
Be "book smart" with this artistically crafted side table that speaks volumes! A single door and richly flocked drawer appear almost invisibly as this trompe l'oeil side table "fools the eye" with its intricately hand-painted volumes in a wooden work of furniture art. An accent table for library, den or entry, this imaginative piece is as much fun as it is functional. If you have a penchant for the literary, this Basil exclusive is the perfect place to rest a reading lamp, a lush pot of greenery or your favorite work of art.

14"dia.x29"H. 20 lbs.

I would just have to smile when grabbing a tissue from this dispenser.

Book Tissue Dispenser with Drawer
The "classics" cleverly camouflage a hidden drawer in the bottom book to keep your jewelry, or "fun money" safe. A boutique-sized box of tissues is concealed in the top. Handcrafted of hardwoods and handpainted. Hinged lid and plush lining. 7"L x 6 1/2"W x 8"H.

And for your bigger boxes of tissue...

These are so pretty.

Large drawer holds your stamps, stick-on notes and desk essentials. Handcrafted to resemble antique leather-bound books; wood, vinyl and metal. 15 1/2"L x 7"H x 6 1/2"D.

Not sure how I feel that The Bible is incorporated into a wastebasket design. But still pretty cool.

Book Wastebasket
A literary wastebasket that looks and feels like a collection of eight leather-bound books on a shelf. Crafted of wood and painted with beautiful olde-world detailing with the look and feel of leather. 10" x 12".

That's all I have for now.
