Liberate Your Pages
The coffee table book paradox: they're filled with gorgeous images—that you can't see when the book is closed. (Which it usually is, because coffee spills.) Jamie Esslinger and Michael Smith's's ingenious hanging holder puts an end to this woeful impasse. The lightweight-but-strong mahogany frame at top and bottom are joined by a jute rope that's instantly adjustable. Show off almost any size book or framed artwork, or hang one in the kitchen to keep a cookbook page at eye level. It's a handsome piece of rustic decor, but the best part is that you can easily change the pages to create a new display. Once you try it, you'll never go back to the old way. But buy some flowers for your coffee table so it knows you still love it, OK? Handmade in New Jersey.
