Writing on the Wall with Typewriters
My vintage typewriter collection has outgrown my home’s desks, bookshelves, and even stacked vintage suitcase “tables.” While some will eventually find their way to other homes, I still need to find a way to showcase my beautiful collection without starting to use my dining table and kitchen counter as displays!
How about literally writing on the wall? With brackets, typewriters become beautiful wall art, yet still retain their functionality for short bursts of upside-down typing, and I especially enjoying viewing them from a different perspective.

How can you display your typewriter collection if you have more than a dozen of these treasures? If you are a writer, you should showcase them in your bedroom, which will certainly bring the power of typewriter osmosis to your dreams, as seen on HGTV.
Talk about a new perspective! Before seeing them on a wall, did you ever know about all the facial expressions typewriters could exude? Highlux did and captured this fantastic typewriter display on a wall at the Lyttelton Coffee Company.
Spotted by Kazi Noor at Anthropologie, even one typewriter displayed on the wall creates a charming and whimsical (written) conversation piece.
What do you think of displaying typewriters on the wall? Where do you keep your typewriter(s)?
