Displaying Items in Unconventional Ways

Displaying dinnerware in bookcases

We have a lot of decorating mantras here at How to Decorate, but one of them has to be that if you’re going to invest in a quality furniture piece, it needs to be able to serve multiple uses in your home. The way you live in your home is bound to evolve. What may have been a spare office could turn into a child’s bedroom, or perhaps a sunroom off the kitchen turns into your dining space. No matter how situations may change in your life, it’s important to have furniture pieces that can evolve with you, moving from room to room and still being functional and beautiful. Because of this, we love showing unconventional ways to use our pieces in the pages of our catalog, like in this dining room where we used our Toulouse Bookcase to display dinnerware!
