Display the Anchor

Bookcases and display cupboards anchor a room.  They provide scale and functionality allowing you to display your favorite objects.

image4The dark glass front piece contrasts nicely against the white walls providing scale to a high wall without  taking floor space and allowing the room to still feel open and the furnishes around to provide texture without feeling cluttered.  The tapestry chair contrasts nicely with the painted table and tree trunk stool  to provide a sculptural element to the space.
