Feel free to judge these books by their covers — their extroverted graphics and bold colors and prints make them equal parts great reads and design statements.
From 1940s Swedish novels to language primers, these books are the perfect rainy-night reads. But we’re also judging them by their covers — and, on that front, they score big. From antiqued leather to patent to something a little more wild (leopard print), they’re as much design statements as they are literary ones.
A bookcase is not just practical — it's a chance to show off good design. To that end, we've got plenty of statement-making vases, bookends, boxes, and even framed art here that’ll help you curate an inspired look.
