Bookshelves and more

There are some wonderful things being presented on the design*sponge guest blog. With our recent posting on cut paper, we thought our readers might enjoy some of these lovely items:


One of the most difficult items to purchase for the home is a distinctive piece of furniture to house your books. Didier and Clotilde of Presse Citron have designed an intricately framed bookshelf that hangs on the wall. For those interested in the book as art, this seems like it would be the perfect gift. They come in three different versions and three colors: pink, black, and white. You can read more about Presse-Citron at the Three Layer Cake website.


Another fun gift idea are these two hanging chandeliers designed by Louise Henderstrom, for Belysningsbolaget. Like the work of Tord Boontje, these laser-cut lights are fanciful, functional, and well-designed. These particular examples present an interesting dialogue between the delicacy of constuction and the use of cut paper versus more precious materials, like silver and crystal.
