Bookcases are the go-to accessory these days. So many ways to style them and so many uses. I am currently in the process of adding some to my dining room and I have been planning to layer some arm chairs in front of them. I just wanted to create a little seating area but partly I was adding the chairs just because I like the look of something partially in front of the shelves. So when I saw this image I had a little aha moment…how smart, ottomans in front with a throw pillow for back support. Totally looks like a little chair and adds so much character to the shelves. You could easily find some ottomans at Goodwill or on Craigslist and have them recovered. I love smart people!
