Shelving/Storage

Dash Wall-Mounted Shelving

If you’ve ever wrestled with floating shelves, you know that finding studs or installing anchors is usually a huge pain in the ass. The Dash Wall-Mounted Shelving by Darin Montgomery (of Urbancase) promises easy mounting via a smart system that requires no stud mounting locations. Really, no studs. Each thin shelf holds up to 40 pounds, so you could confidently stack some books or set a couple of speakers on there without worrying about the whole thing tumbling down.

Farmhouse Modern Cupboard

The beauty of a walnut armoire/cabinet done in a minimal, modern design is just plain hard to resist, no matter the cost. Chadhaus (a favorite of ours here at BLTD) has released this new design and it has the same quality marks we’ve come to know and expect (and love) from their previous pieces.

The hand-built nature of the solid wood case and custom-veneered doors guarantees that it will last for generations to come, and the adjustable shelving and a pullout drawer makes it suitable for storage in any room. Picture it in your dining room, living area, office, or bedroom, with its shelves semi-full of perfectly organized, useful things. Now, tell me, doesn’t that picture look nice?

Stone Shelf

If you don’t need a small-ish shelf, then good for you. For the rest of us, we could probably use a small perch to set our phone and/or keys when we walk in the door, or as a diminutive ledge for the bathroom or bedside for our watches and jewelry. This one from Fort Standard is made of marble, which adds an extra ounce (or ounces, as the case may be) of luxury.

Hay Denmark Pivot Table

I bet you’ll have some fun with these Pivot Tables. They’re made from steel circles, and each one is folded in different ways in order to create varying geometric compositions. Four variants plus a multifunctional mount let you place the Pivot in just the right spot, and I dare say it would be a shame to order only one, as it seems like a grouping would make the most impact.

360 Shelf

This isn’t an ordinary wall shelf- it turns 360 degrees for custom display options. A built in adjustment system lets you angle it any which way- books, magazines, tablets, you name it, and it’ll look more interesting when you switch it from a 45 degree angle to a 70, just because you feel like it. Group a few together for a bigger statement or just get a couple for your favorite reading spot. Fun!

The Floyd Shelf

Thankfully, the clever people behind The Floyd Leg didn’t stop with increasing the amount of tables on this earth: there’s now The Floyd Shelf. One set of a left and right shelf bracket can create one shelf- you just have to supply the flat surface. Maybe you’ve got some wood lying around, maybe some other mysterious material, but put your brain to work in thinking up ways you can utilize your existing ‘stuff’ to create a new shelf to put your other stuff like books and plants and such.

Leaning Wall Pocket

Put in a pocket! Why not hide your sundries away in a pouch? It looks to have a marsupial sort of security with its leaning angle and soft sides. Plus, you know it doesn’t hurt to have a one place to put all those mittens, maps, and hats, as that’s the only place you’ll have to look when you’re ready to venture outside of your home territory. Hang it in your entryway, office, closet, or wherever you need a place to put stuff.

Billy II Box

Speaking of desks and storage space for paperwork, there’s always the option of adding a roller file underneath your existing desk if there’s room. You could get a ho-hum boring rolling file from an office supply store, or you could shell out more dough for one that actually looks like a good deal of design thought went into its creation. Ethnicraft’s Universo Positivo collection has caught our eye before, and their Billy II Box stands out for its combination of solid oak and lacquered stainless steel. A large opening in the back accommodates cords (not apparent in the picture above, fyi) while one drawer provides just enough space for essentials. Need a stack of drawers instead? Consider the Oak Billy Box, an alternate version.

Aura Credenza

You’ve seen the Aura Media Unit featured here before, but this is the Aura Credenza and it might just be the answer to your storage issues. Wood veneer and lacquer mix well for contrast, and the three drawers plus an open shelf and two cabinets will hold all sorts of stuff. Removable shelves and a cord escape means it would fit well in an office or living area, hiding your printer and/or other electronics without sacrificing a streamlined, elegant look. I might just have to buy one for my own home office, especially as it’s on sale.

Marble Wall-Mounted Shelf

If you’re a complete snob, you might turn your nose up at “Carrara-style” marble, but marble is marble is marble for most people, and a smallish shelf for just under $50 might just go a long way to helping a storage problem. Maybe you could use an extra surface in the bathroom or in the kitchen? Snap one (or two) of these shelves up for an easy fix.

Profil Aluminum Wall Shelf

If you’re in need of an affordable sort of steel ledge, you’d do well to check out CB2’s Bent Metal Wall Shelf, $199. It will hold your sundries and art objects just fine. However, if you’re after a longer, leaner look, you might want to consider digging into your wallet a bit more for the Profil Aluminum Wall Shelf by Jörg Schellmann. Made of extruded aluminum with a powder coat paint finish, each shelf may be used upside down to create a sculptural top to another unit or combined end to end for larger display. Side panels are also an option.
