Places of honor: a trio of shelves.

The way one shows off art, flowers, and souvenirs can be just as striking as the items on display. Los Angeles designer Gere Kavanaugh created the lighted mantle above left. Made of 1-by-4s, it's 10 feet long and 10 inches deep. Inside, 40-inch-long fluorescent tubes, mounted to the base, operate on a dimmer. A notch in the top edge holds 1/4-inch white acrylic plastic. L-brackets attach the unit to wall studs. For the shelf below, Kavanaugh used an irregular 2- by 15- by 40-inch hardwood slab supported by pipe dowels. (See detail at right.) The T-shaped platform above right, by Los Angeles architect Kaye Secomb, resembles a Japanese tokonoma flower display niche). She nailed blocks to a stud, wrapped them with gypsum board, and finished them to match the wall. El
