Bookends are more than just random items to keep your freestanding books from falling over. They’re also pieces of art, little sculptures, to keep your books company while also holding them upright. So you should absolutely up your decor game with these unique bookends that can be found on Etsy.
I have an embarrassing amount of bookends — most of which are just stacked around my library because my bookshelves are too full to accessorize. Unicorns? Check. Ampersands? Obviously. Metal blocks in various colors? Yep. And when I receive more bookends as gifts, I’m not even mad. It’s just an excuse to find somewhere else around the house to store some freestanding books. As decor, of course.
But that doesn’t mean I’m not imagining my life without these gorgeously unique bookends. Whether you love pieces that are chic, minimalist, rustic, artistic, or utilitarian, we surely have something for you in this collection. A word of caution: Some of these are an investment, not a frivolous purchase.
