Wine boxes also create more visual weight than the average piece of art. So, if you have an area, like a long wall, that needs to be broken up and you can't or don't want to use a piece of furniture, try wine boxes. In this particular room, we had an unusual dilemma, a 35 foot brick wall with a ledge running along the floor next to it. While the wall desperately needed to be visually broken up, a piece of furniture against it was not an option. Enter the wood wine boxes...
Note that some of our wine boxes have backs and others do not. I picked them up from local wine shops. Then, "stained" them with a vinegar and steel wool stain.
This is idea also works well with only one or two wine boxes, if you have a smaller space.
Consider pairing a wine box with framed pictures or less traditional art, like the carved wood block (used for printing) seen on top of the "Ravenswood" box
