Étagère

An étagère is a piece furniture with open shelving for the purpose of displaying ornamental accents.

Étagères, though they can be used functionally for storage purposes, are meant to be decorative and pretty.  Interior designers love them because they provide a beautiful backdrop for showing off visually interesting household items and accessories.

One might use an étagère to display a pottery collection, a set of rare antique books, or treasured family photos.

Here or a few examples of etageres:
