Design Porn: 10 Shelf-Worthy Bookends

It has been an interesting few months in the world of bookends. No, seriously. First, lawyers representing Jeff Koons demanded that San Francisco’s Park Life stop selling bookends that look like balloon dogs. (Luckily for everyone involved, the ridiculous case was later dropped.) Then a man in Deland, Florida almost blew himself up after using a pineapple-style active World War II grenade given to him by a neighbor as a bookend for years. All drama aside, bookends are more than just decorative (and in some cases, dangerous) objects — they’re also pretty darn useful. That’s why after the jump, we’ve rounded up 10 of our favorites for your consideration; let us know in the comments if you’ll be adding any of these to your own bookshelf.
