For display purposes only

Wow, a third décor post of the day! Perhaps Tuesdays should be décor day around here? We were just perusing through some recent Design*Sponge posts and were struck by this highly adorable robot under glass in the home of Sarah Coombs and Andy Pratt. Glass domes – like old-school cheese platters, cake domes and the like – can often be found for cheap at thrift stores and flea markets (we spotted one at Goodwill just this weekend and are now kicking ourselves that we didn't purchase it), and we love the idea of creating a similar quirky display piece.
Knowing us, we would probably use it to display our vintage shoes or favorite accessories, kind of like the displays at Bombay Electric, the amazing Mumbai boutique owned by our incredibly stylish and creative friend Priya. They display their sunglasses for sale under cake stands (below). Such a great way to use your serveware more often, no?
