Bookends That Make a Statement

By: Susan W., Renter (Oakland, CA)

These are pretty special. They are both graceful and solid. I was a little apprehensive about buying something that "needs to be a certain way" (able to hold my heavy art books on a shelf), and all that apprehension was for naught. Right and left hemispheres are holding strong, and looking very cool.
