Recently we were at the new Firefly store in Venice when our friend commented on how much she liked the solid, simple shelves they were using for a display. She was surprised to hear where they were from and even more surprised to hear the price:
Not only is the design simple but the natural wood looks modern and somehow, expensive. The shelves are solid enough to stand on their own and don't wiggle around even with heavy books on them. Use them to divide a space or to create a private nook. The lower version could make an excellent under-a-window storage system or extra counter top in the kitchen.
