YOU may or may not know that I am a bit of a DESIGN BOOK junkie…
I love Design Books, they are my Porn, they make me so happy and when New ones come out
I am usually one of the first in line to get them…I LOVE them.
…for the MANY I DO HAVE there are as many that I WANT…My favorite ones are the Design Books that have good text in addition to amazing photos.
You know the ones, these are the design Books that tell a story, the author writes and I learn something about the Designer or ARtist through their unique VOICE..
….come to think of it….Similar to the way I am engaged by a BLOG and it’s author.
My book collection had begun to spillover onto all surfaces, and I only have two coffee tables!!! …Recently I stumbled upon this amazing bookshelf at the Greenwood Country Store…
The sales person at The Greenwood Country Store told me that this shelf was a Special line designed in the 1950’s-60’s by Drexel Heritage for Military families to use in their homes …
I just love it, it had already had a pretty makeover, so I all needed to do was bring it home (the sucker is HEA- EV -VEE!, solid as a rock, but I pulled it in and set it up.
I have not yet “styled”it, almost on purpose, I pull the books our so often, I just put them in….and went to the beach!!!
Now that I am back home..I am thinking about possible ways to style it…thoughts….?
how do you weigh in on color coded bookcases….?

love how it looks with all the books stacked like that!
Awesome find! I like it the way that you have it right now.
I like it just as it is right now. What a marvellous find! I kind of love colour coded bookshelves just for pure aesthetics but I think it looks too obvious, styling wise. I don’t know, I kind of like the regular way better in real life. But do whatever rings your bell I say!
Great find, Lesli. I am going to need a shelf for my growing collection of design books soon, too!
I like the way you have it now.. :o) and I want a close up because I need to see all the titles you have! I love design books too! (and want to buy more) :o)
I Just went back and added a photo for you!!!
I love the Greenwood Country Store…I always find something awesome there. I am not much for ROYGBIV organization. I am an alphabetical person at heart, but I can appreciate the rainbow look.
That is exactly what I want!!!!
Now that I know what you mean, I will look everywhere I go…to find one for you!!!
I am a reformed army brat and can confirm the bookshelf story. I inherited my parent’s quartermaster’s bookshelf and while it’s a slightly different design, I can see the same lines. Mine needs a paint job – the veneer is in rough shape from our many many moves. It’s sort of hard to bring myself to do it though…
This is so cool!! Thank you so much for your comment!!!!xo
