When it comes to my requirements for an ideal bookshelf, this model by Julian Chichester
satisfies them all. The overall shape takes advantage of floor-to-ceiling space, while the open, backless grid of the metal frame keeps the piece from overwhelming more modestly proportioned rooms. The textural parchment (available in brown and ivory) against the patina of the brass adds a luxe finish to this modern shape. Sure, this would be a great media organizer or bookshelf in the living room, but the dainty knobs of the dresser also feel appropriate for a dressing room or walk-in closet.
