Vintage bookends most definitely fall into the "cool but useful" category, and I've been lucky enough to find quite a few sets lately! Here are some of my bookend finds from the last month or so:
A couple of cast brass lighthouse bookends. Preppy and nautical!
I also picked up this heavy marble set of bookends. What would you call them?
Mexican/Mayan/Aztec Totems/Gods/Statues? I've seen similar sets referenced as all of the above! I think they're kind of charming.
I picked up two of these brass shells...simple and chic. I recently saw a design blogger who used a set of these, back to back, to hold bills on top of her desk.
I need to shine this pair up, but once I do, they'll be amazing in a kid's room or nursery.
Seriously, could they be any cuter? I think not. :)
This guy is probably my favorite recent bookend find. He's kind of bronze and really solid.
I only found one, but I still love it!
There are so many vintage bookends out there; this is just a sampling of the ones I've come across recently. How about you? Do you collect anything vintage that you can put to use in your modern home?
