LA Good Question: The Perfect Bookcase?

LA Good Question: The Perfect Bookcase?

ATLA reader Anna wants to outfit her new loft apartment with just the right bookcase or cabinet. Anyone out there with suggestions?

My husband and I live in a gorgeous loft-ish apartment in Downtown LA. When we merged our worldy goods, we had almost all the furniture we needed - but after our recent marriage, we have been given many beautiful new things and have very little room to show them off! We've decided to invest in a new bookcase or cabinet (see attached photo). We'd like to get something that is good quality but not spend more than $1500. As you can see, our style is eclectic and we have all manner of finishes and materials in our other furniture. My husband thinks the new piece should be dark wood and possibly Asian-inspired - while I lean toward plywood and stainless steel. Can you help us decide?
