wall niches





As much as I prefer
giant industrial shelving
I also enjoy a bookshelf that is
disproportionally smaller than the
rest of the room, more like a little
wall cubby to place just a few things.



It reminds me of those tiny
wall niches in old Etruscan towns
where people place 2 or 3 things
of special value.

it could be a lit candle,
a little vase of flowers,
a religious crucifix,
or the Madonna.

the best part,
is that someone changes it everyday:
replaces the flowers, rearranges the stones, etc.
it's like an anonymous love letter
to
the townspeople.



have you seen this before?
