My Fascination with é·ta·gères



I have a fascination with etageres......
 (Insert theme song: Human League's "Keep Feeling Fascination".)

There's something about the open, flowing, spaciousness of them that gets me. Add a shine like chrome or mirror and I'm sold. It all started with my obsession to find some mid-century modern, chrome, open back shelves from the 70's. I knew they had to be out there and that Craigslist was my outlet.


Just for you, a medley of my favorite etageres set to the lyrics of "Keep Feeling Fascination". Enjoy!





If it seems a little time is needed
Decisions to be made
The good advice of friends unheeded
The best of plans mislaid



Just looking for a new direction
In an old familiar way
The forming of a new connection
To study or to play




 And so the conversation turned
Until the sun went down
And many fantasies were learned
On that day

Keep feeling fascination
Passion burning
Love so strong
Keep feeling fascination
Looking learning
Moving on


 (are you singing out loud yet?)






Well the truth may need some
Re-arranging
Stories to be told
And plain to see the facts are changing
No meaning left to hold

And so the conversation turned
Until the sun went down
And many fantasies were learned

And now, drum roll please.......


My wonderful Craigslist find: 
A pair of 1970's chrome metal é·ta·gères

The accessories could still use some tweaking. Always a work in progress.
