Unique Bookends to Up Your Shelfie Game

Oprah Daily Logo By Brigitt Earley of Oprah Daily | Slide 1 of 21: There are some home design purchases you agonize over—the right rug for your main living room, the perfect everyday dinnerware, or the comfiest arm chair for your favorite reading nook. And then there are the smaller, seemingly insignificant items that you seem to gloss over, like, well, bookends for instance. But when you look at the overall picture, these smaller, humbler items can make a surprisingly big difference, pulling the whole aesthetic together and instantly upping your shelfie game. (The gorgeous Instagram-ready picture of your bookshelf, that is. And yes, it's a real thing!) Not to mention, the right bookends are supremely functional, since your beloved book club picks can't very well stand up on their own. And when that ever-expanding collection of romance novels gets too big for the succulent or vase you have propping them up? Well, you're asking for a broken objet and a big mess. So no matter what room you're putting the finishing touches on—the home office, nursery, or even kitchen—don't forget to consider the finer decorative details, like bookends. When you're ready to shop, these unique finds in cool finishes like wood, metal, and resin are the best options out there. (And don't forget: Bookends make a great gift for any book lover, too.)
