If you love interior design, chances are that you also love getting small decorative objects. But what do you do when you accumulate so many home accessories and have nowhere to display them? Get an étagère or two! Étagères will display your collections and are beautiful to look at themselves. They can also help anchor a room, make a huge design statement and draw the eye up to create an illusion of a higher ceiling. Here are some of my favorite étagères. — Jessie from Mix and Chic
