Pining for Pineapples and Other Bookends...

Styling a collection of books on a tabletop or within a shelving unit is always made easier with fashionable bookends. Whether they're in a typical library motif, such as classical figureheads, or if they're  more obscure in funky shapes such as the wonderfully wacky pineapples below, having a collection of bookends in materials and shapes you adore is a great way to jazz up your library.

Mix them in with personal photos, vases and other mementos, such as Gucci creative director Frida Giannini did in her Italian villa  for a totally personal look.

Here are some of my picks that cover a wide range of styles:
