I’ve always admired the work of
Greene & Greene, two architects
who designed Arts & Crafts
homes and furnishings in the early 20th century. Their
detailing is exquisite. I love the softened edges, pegged
joinery, square motifs and overall lightness of their work.
When I needed bookends to hold some special volumes, I turned to these gifted artists for inspiration.
This bookrack works on a very simple principle: friction.
The bookends are adjustable, sliding on two rails to hold
any set of books. But when you push the ends up to the
books, they tilt slightly and bind against the rails. They’re
locked in place. When you pull a book out, the ends are
released and free to slide again.
