While flipping through my copy of the extra-large Williams-Sonoma Home catalog the other day, I spied with my little eye something gorgeous: a French oak and-cast-iron baker's rack
much like the ones used in Parisian boulangeries.
Being a writer/editor with very (very) limited resources, I will likely spend years pining for it. So I decided to play a game of high-low to find similar versions at multiple price points. (Though, if you love and can afford the original, more power to you!) Here's what I came up with:

And my personal favorite, a bookcase made with reclaimed railroad ties

Which would you choose?
