Daily Covet: Proximity Console Table

Well, the holidays have come and gone, and we are still organizing and moving things around now that our decorations have been put away.

I’ve mentioned my living room in other posts – it’s long and narrow and although I want to move things around, I’m just not sure how to accomodate the furniture that we do have (maybe pull some out?)

Either way, we are in desperate need of some book shelves and also an “anchor” of sorts for our sofa. When our straw-colored velvet sofa isn’t up against the wall, it tends to slide – or get pushed – backward. This beautiful Proximity console table, which would allow us to house our favorite books and some regularly played board games, would also provide our couch with something to butt up against.

I recently purchased several lamps with this same brushed-bronze finish to match. Now if I could pull together everything else, I’d be in good shape…

Daily Covet: Chinese Chippendale Étagère

We need shelves like no other.

This house contains boxes of packed-away books, tables with stacked books, and small bookcases with way too many books too.

I’m always on the hunt for places to store books, trinkets, art and more.  When I saw this amazing Chinese Chippendale Étagère this morning on OneKingsLane.com, I was instantly smitten.

Now if I could just find this beautiful piece on the cheap at a local esate sale instead!

Daily Covet: Jane Mount Ideal Bookshelf

I have long been intrigued with Jane Mount and her ideal bookshelves.

I’m a reader, my husband is a literature buff, my small boys die to be read to.  That’s why I constantly keep my eye on 20×200’s collection of Jane Mount’s art.  She makes “ideal bookshelves” for everyone – over 600 to be exact.

Dr. Suess and Pat the Bunny grace a children’s bookshelf.  There is one with all the classics for the professor of literature, and now the perfect shelf for a fashionista.

Some of the books are ones I actually own, which makes Mount’s Fashion bookshelf even more fun.  This will definitely go to the top of my Christmas list!

Daily Covet: Ask, and Ye Shall Receive

Levels of Discovery Monster Double Revolving Bookcase, Zulily.com $97.99

My weekly blog for Momaha.com put the call out for gift ideas for a two-year-old, whose five-year-old brother already has everything.  Zulily.com must read my blogs, because in my email this morning, came these adorable revolving book shelves.

There’s only one problem:  Finding a wall or corner that doesn’t already contain furniture (furniture that is currently housing books I might add!)

Well, if I can’t find space for it, that doesn’t mean you can’t!
