Yung-Hsing has a section, or maybe it’s a chapter now, on Levenger in her book. I don’t know how we got to be familiar with Levenger now. It must have been back in the days of catalogs. When you would purchase something from L.L. Bean or some other slightly upscale catalog, you would find yourself receiving catalogs from all the other slightly upscale merchants. Levenger came at us with an assortment of pens and book cases. We could, at the time, only afford the low end pens. Now we can afford the occasional bit of furniture.
Yung and my mother teamed up this past Christmas to give my home study a bit of an update:
The matching rolling ottoman-filecart and small writing table work really well with the bench we picked at World Market. The bench, unfortunately, is presently home to a pile of receipts and other “inbox” things that is, fortunately, hidden in this image.
I couldn’t help but notice that Levenger is having a sale on the book cases that go with my current office furniture. [The Skyline bookcase is quite nice]. (You can even add a drawer to it!)
I should, I know, probably consider building my own bookshelves. (And I think I have an idea of what I want/need.)
