Taking a very rare home/design request

I got a note the other day from a reader named Mary Kay requesting that I cover “attractive and not too pricey” bookends, and the note came just one day after I was contemplating just such a post. That felt like kismet, in addition to which I was in a procrastinatory mood book-wise, so here we go: These come in a set of three, and I like that they’re a classic shape, but such good colors.

Mary Kay requested nothing pricey, but I couldn’t not include these, from Fornasetti, because they are just too good.

This is very modern-in-the-70s, in a good way.

I found these at Target—they’re part of a collab with Dwell magazine, and I like the unexpected shape and most excellent redness of them.

These are just rather clever.

And I think the clouds here are pretty cute, if a bit twee.
