Arch Bookends - White Ash

Regular price$195.00
Tax included.


Arch Timber Bookends are minimalist yet striking bookends that will quickly become a design favourite in your home.

The bookends are defined by their arched and chamfered form that accentuates the natural grain of the wood. We love the elegant silhouette and the weightiness of Arch - they are sophisticated, timeless and are so much more than a humble bookend.

The Arch timber bookends contain a steel rod for extra weight and are strong enough to hold your heavy hardbacks with ease. They also have a felt bottom to prevent surface scratches. They are available as a Pair or a Single bookend. 

The Arch Bookends are designed by industrial designer René Linssen and crafted by hand in Canberra.   

Size: 13.5 x 5.7 x 18cm, 1.5kg per bookend

Material: White Ash, steel rod

Made in: Canberra
