Ornate is generally not our thing (case in point: Brocade Home), but we're finding it has more appeal when rendered in plastic. Case in point #2: the $8 Baroque Wall Shelf from German home accessories design house Koziol, makers of our houseplants' favorite watering can, the Elise (we like it so much that we actually use it). This little (6.5"w x 3.75"d x 5"h.) shelf has wit and pizzazz. A great spot for something with modern contrast, like a sleek lamp, or your iPod. In transparent orange and pink, white, or black, at Rose and Radish.
