etagere

May 31, 2011

One thing I love about having the internet at home is the benefit of being able to learn something new every now and then – be it trivial places and events or even just a single word from a dictionary that I’ve never come across before – words like etagere [ey-tah-zhair] – which in simple English means a shelf. Uncommon, isn’t it? But we sure already have seen or perhaps own one.

Old people’s idea of collecting trinkets and displaying small ornamental objects of trivial value is what stimulated the production of this whimsically named piece of furniture in France somewhere in 18th century.

Stylish and elegantly made etageres will certainly make a wonderful addition to any room at your home. The one you are seeing right now is perfect for displaying cherished photos, plants or collectibles – my personal favorite from etagere store’s collection.
