What we look for when we first enter your apartment:
- the ratio of floor space to dirty underwear
- your CD/mp3 collection
- your DVD collection
- your books
After all, as Rob points out in High Fidelity (an old fave), “what really matters is what you like, not what you are like.”
And when we see a smart book collection on an even smarter bookshelf…we’re sold.
This Pack of Dogs shelving — designed by Oscar Nunez — is exactly what I’m talking about. Named after famous Mexican wrestlers (Aguayo, Superastro, El Santo, etc.), these pooch-shaped pieces can be used as side tables, stools, benches, bookends, and my fave: the bookshelf.
