Alternative Bookends Made From Finials

Cool Idea: A Bookish Twist on Artichoke Finials

Shopping in one of my favorite local consignment furniture shops, I fell hard for this pair of white wooden artichoke finials, originally meant for the ends of a curtain rod or bed posts. I really have no use for them as curtain rod finials, but I instantly realized they'd make great bookends! They have a regal, statuesque shape that's practically destined for bookshelf styling. And their wooden form gives them enough heft and stability to parenthesize a literary collection of nearly any width and weight. Want a pair for yourself? Check out the wide selection of finials on ShopStyle!
