Years ago, I purchased this brass easel to display a favorite Jane Booth painting. I simply cannot create an interior without artwork and — in a room with very little wall space, like my wine room — an easel is the perfect way to create a tabletop display. Unfortunately for the many people who have inquired after seeing this photo, that particular easel was long ago discontinued … and I’ve been unable to find a similar replacement ever since. To make matters worse? My easel also came with a very affordable price tag — which left more money to spend on the art!
But guess what I spotted. Wisteria is now carrying an acrylic easel! If there’s anything I love as much as brass, it’s most definitely lucite. Lucite works in both traditional and contemporary interiors … and it won’t compete with the artwork. Best of all? The easel comes with Wisteria’s affordable price tag.
The only question in my mind is — how many should I buy?

Restoration Hardware carries a very similar easel in oil-rubbed bronze and polished nickel. Too bad they left out brass, huh? But I love mixing metals … which makes these easels a fantastic option. Thanks to super-savvy blog reader Tonya for sharing this info!
