Bookends

Indice Bookends (Grey)

If you’d rather not infuse your bookshelf with an array of rainbow color, you’re in luck, as there’s now a subtle set of grey Indice Bookends that does the job quietly without shouting (red!orange!yellow!green!blue!). Not that there’s anything wrong with color, mind you, just that sometimes it’s nice to do without.

Book Binder

Hmm, here’s something different in the world of bookends. Instead of two separate stand-alone ends, this book binder has an elastic band to hold the books together. The flexibility of the band allows you to remove or add books as you like without them tumbling over and also makes it possible for the stack to be freestanding wherever you wish.

WAKA WAKA’s Shaped Bookends

Fun bookends? Yes, please. WAKA WAKA’s Shin Okuda turns ordinary plywood into these colorful bookends. They’re sold in sets of two, in mismatched colors, mind you, so tell your books to stand up straight for their semi-crazy and exciting new friends. You DIYers might feel an itch to replicate these with your own shapes and colors, and, if so, go for it, as you’ll only need some plywood, glue, paint, and some sort of metal bookend to sandwich between the wood (right?).

Hay Book Ends

If you have books falling over on or off a shelf, consider these steel bookends from Hay. They come in a set of three (in either a color mix, black, or white) and have different heights to work with your books. Quite similar to the Steel Bookends from the Jasper Morrison shop, which are a little less price wise if you’re in the UK.

Steel Bookends

Bookends need not be fancy. Case in point, these utilitarian steel bookends from BOOK/SHOP. Perhaps they have the slightest flair with their “sporty side flanges” but really, those aren’t frilly or even close to fancy, they’re sporty, as the retailer states. Available in 3 powder-coated colors; Dark Grey, Light Grey, and Yellow.

Cork Planter Bookend Set

Like anyone else, I’m completely charmed by a full and well-organized bookcase. However, having a second stash of go-to or display books has an equally important role in a well decorated home. Finding just-the-right bookends may be a daunting task, but I can’t see too many rooms where these won’t fit it perfectly. The Cork Planter Bookends are made to accommodate small houseplants such as succulents and miniature cacti. The high-density natural cork also serves as a place to pin up notes, making it a perfect desk companion.

Bookstops

These became unavailable last year, much to my disappointment and several of yours, if my memory serves correct. Happily, they are available again through A+R.

Love how the bases of these bookends (or bookstops) are concave to allow for desktop storage (paperclips, rubberbands etc.)…

Bird’s Foot Bookend

These Nambu Cast Iron bookends initially confused the heck out of me when trying to figure out who they were designed by… Here they say Tadahiro Baba, here it says Tetsutaro Nakabayashi, with the other cast iron items being T. Baba, here Tetsutaro Nakabayashi, while at DUDYE it definitely shows the bookends in the interview with Tetsutaro Nakabayashi (with a chrome version shown, very nice)… So, that’s what I’m going with. I’m guessing there’s an obvious connection that I just can’t find at the moment.
