Etagere are furnishings that include open shelving where items might be displayed. They can be simple bookshelf style units, ladder shelving, or even small shelves that are incorporated into the side of a mirror or larger cabinet. While they can be used for book shelving, they are frequently more suited to showing off various small objects d’art. The shelving is usually decorative in nature, but can sometimes be utilitarian. An important feature is that it is sturdy, capable of holding up variously sized items. The exception to this is small shelving for knickknacks or spices.
