Despite all of the technological developments of the past several decades, typewriters are still a staple in many of our homes. Whether we inherited one from a relative or picked one up at a favorite vintage shop, many of us just can’t get enough of them. I recently purchased one on Facebook Marketplace, and while it is in working condition, I mainly just thought about how cool it would look sitting on my bookshelf (and, I’m not going to lie—it makes a great conversation starter when guests come over!). Have a typewriter at home but not sure how to work it into your existing decor? Take a look at the photos below to see how others have styled this special piece.

Move over, bar carts… we’re all for typewriter carts (but seriously, how cool is this display?! Just don’t spill!).
