"A pair of pagoda-topped archway-shaped brass bookends that reminds us of the old city gates in the city of Shanghai. Whether you are super freaky for chinoiserie or not, these delightful Asian lovelies will win you over long time. Plus, rampant dragons that shimmy and shake across another pair of vintage brass bookends that are just too chic. This pair will make a strong statement as they roar in their splendor.
John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon are the dynamic duo behind Madcap Cottage, their Brooklyn-based interior design firm. Known for their whimsical use of color and pattern, the Madcap gents scour the world for eclectic finds that capture their unique and gimlet-eyed view of the world. Imagine a British country house that pairs Grannys antiques and a spirited dash of chinoiserie chic with a side of Moroccan marvelous and Indian lan. If you are looking for beige and boring, says Jason, go bark up someone elses tree.
