Favorite Purchase

I purchased the Macon Metal Etagere Bookcase from Wayfair when I moved to New York 9 months ago, and it is my pride and joy. It holds all of my books (which is a lot) without compromising on looks, and I love the modern design with its intricate metal details. The grey wash wood color of the shelves blends in seamlessly with the rest of my décor, making for a rustic chic aesthetic.
