Shabby Chic Bookends

Shabby Chic, Industrial Chic and Steampunk Decor Can All Use These Bookends!

The hottest trend in decorating is the chic look: Shabby Chic and Industrial Chic. This type of decor combines both the look of soft and hard, iron and fabric, wood stain and paint. It is all about the combinations and how they compliment each other and look together.

You do not have to decorate the entire room in this, who has the budget to toss everything and completely replace the entire decor of a room? That’s the great thing about the chic looks, you can add touches of it, and change the feel of a room without having to completely redecorate!

It’s all about the accents! If you want to start changing the decor of a room, a budget friendly way to do it is to start with your accents. Almost every room has books, so a great accent to start with are bookends. They look great on bookshelves, but try them holding three or four books upright on your mantle or your desk. They also look great on a hutch in the kitchen holding up cookbooks. Bookends are a great way to give any room a touch of that awesome, new trendy chic look!

  1. I really like those industrial looking bookends.
    When our local bank closed, they sold off the marble pieces from the interior (vintage 1880). I bought two pieces that make beautiful bookends.
