A little bookshelf, a pair of smart bookends, a candle that smells like an old book, and a minimalist literary poster are more than enough to create an ideal home library or a nook you can escape to every time you need to spend some time with your favorite book characters.

Thanks to books we get smarter and smarter. Cleverly designed bookends can express that. At least half of the examples in this overview add context to the fact it’s all about the books.

In the following list, you will see, among others:

  • Heavy bookends made from geode and agate
  • Slim geometric bookends that use the weight of books to keep them in place
  • Cool and fun bookends that are hidden behind book covers
  • Amazing geometric bookends for contemporary spaces
  • Pop culture bookends: Star Wars, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, and more
  • Bookends combined with other home decor items

What kind of bookend are you looking for?

Bookends differ in style and functionality, but their most important role is to keep books in vertical position as firmly as possible.

Bookends that are heavy – they are made of a heavy material that prevents them from moving over a bookshelf surface. Concrete, steel, and stones are most popular, but you can also find bookends that are weighted with a heavy material that’s put inside. These bookends usually have a layer of non-slip material glued to their bottom.

Bookends that use the weight of books – these bookends and book stops are cleverly playing with the fact that books are heavy. When you slide a bookend’s bottom horizontal arm under a stack of books, they will be heavy enough to keep the vertical arm in place. Some designs use magnets to create stunning effect that play with space and gravity.

Quartz is the second most common mineral in the Earth's continental crust. It is mainly composed of Silica or Silica based minerals. Although Quartz is known by a variety of names, the most important distinction between types of Quartz is that of macro-crystalline, individual crystals visible to the unaided eye, and micro-crystalline, where aggregates of crystals are only visible under high magnification. There are many forms of Quartz including Chalcedony, Amethyst, Citrine, and Carnelian which are results of mineral impurities or heat treatments.

This ash was exposed to heat and pressure that resulted in turning it to stone. The bright banded colors are a result of exposure to high concentrations of iron oxides. The material is similar to that of Granite, Pumice and Obsidian but due to the cooling process when formed, Rhyolite did not form any crystals, thus changing the texture of the material.
