Description

There is a reason why every traditional Florentine home I have ever visited has an étagère. They are both stylish and practical. A storage piece that doesn’t impose on a room, yet elegantly displays your treasures. Appropriately, we picked up this 19th century gem in Florence. Perfect for a small space, this narrow étagère with four open shelves offers plenty of display space for books or other collections. Would even be lovely in a bathroom. This étagère features beautiful walnut veneers, an attractive shape, turned legs, and a small railing around the top shelf to keep your treasures safe.
