Design Toscano OA946 Stacked Books Side Table

Have you seen furniture that looks like books? There are all kinds. Some are wood, some are resin and all are really fun and functional furniture

Carved wood furniture is hand-painted to look like stacked books.

Our Toscano-exclusive trompe l’oeil side table “fools the eye” with its intricately hand-painted volumes that create a wooden work of furniture art.
