UPDATE: I've just counted and along with my second shelf I now have 267 books.is this a problem? I wish my other shelf had way better lighting as it has more books than this one. I've lost count on how many I own.
"The large wood fan above the fireplace is by artist Christopher Hewat. It is the first significant piece of art I bought for myself. The black lampshades are from Oriental Lampshade Company. The staff is the nicest and most helpful, and they actually had black lampshades in stock! Just try finding one, let alone a pair. The black lamp bases are from David Stypmann, where I have always found fantastic things."
