Whimsical and a great deal of fun, the "Face" designed by Alexi McCarthy is both a decorative and functional. The bright red abstract image looks great when made the focal point of a room. Particularly when it is placed on a simple, light colored wall such as the one shown here. What will serve as a great accent on the wall, will also serve a very useful purpose. The "Face" is actually an delightful and unique way to display books. This is a book shelf that will get a good deal of attention and is certain to spark a conversation or two. I think it would look fantastic in a young person's room - in fact, I think children of all ages would benefit from these adorably unexpected bookshelves.
