Carlton bookcase

If you are a fan of colors then the Carlton bookcase from Memphis Italy is sure to speak to you. This piece was designed by Ettore Sottsass in the 1980s. This multicolored bookcase is made of pattern laminate. I find this piece interesting, especially when I look at the two small drawers at the bottom. The two drawers and top look like a children's dresser in its own right. The rest of the bookcase is entirely wild building out from the two drawer area. The Carlton bookcase is probably the most famous piece from the Memphis, Italy line. I can see how, since visually speaking the bookcase is certainly going to leave an impression on any viewer. Expect to pay in the range of $6,000-$8,000 for an example in this condition. Dimensions: 75"w x 12"d x 76"h
