{décor inspiration: 70's brass étagère}

sophisticated seventies

. . . always exceptionally fond of sophisticated seventies style on the runways, but had never considered it at home until happening upon this beautiful brass étagère, that works as perfectly as a bar area for pimm's and glassware in the kitchen {above, before & top, after}, or as ingenious storage books and things in the office . . .

Oh thank you thank you!

And to answer the question about where to find it, I totally lucked out and found it at a thrift store for $90! I believe ModFruGal (top two pics) found hers at an estate sale. So obvs. they are out there to be had, and loved!
