Shelving/Storage

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.

Color Block Bookcase

I’m not one for too much color in my own home; grays, browns, and blacks are normally my choice of furnishings. That said, this Color Block Bookcase looks awfully tempting as a storage solution with its soft color palette of grey, powder blue, yellow and red/orange. At first glance, the shelves almost look like translucent glass, yet instead the color is hand-applied enamel poured over smooth, metal shelves.

Graded Shelving Kit

Now, here’s an interesting take on a shelving kit. Notice how the legs thicken towards the bottom? That enables “precisely machined plastic collars” on each of the five shelves to fit at certain spots, thus creating shelving space. Those legs are produced in collaborations with RJH Custom Pool Cues, as those of you who play pool might have noticed. No other hardware is needed, just slide the shelves over the four legs.

Reflect Sideboard, Small

Perhaps you were fond of the undulating front of the Reflect Sideboard, but you pinned your hopes on a smaller version. Lucky you, those hopes have materialized into the little brother/sister version you see above. Measuring in at 41.3″ wide, this Small Reflect Sideboard will be able to fit into those not-so-large nooks that its bigger sibling simply can’t, and will provide you with storage space and Scandinavian style all in one.

Alex Building System

What’s the deal with this jumble of junctions and thumb screws? It’s the Alex Building System, and you’re going to have a lot of fun if you like putting things together with your own two hands, no tools needed. Various junctions can be tightened with the thumb screws onto wood sections to create anything your brain can dream up; coffee tables, consoles, side tables, shelving systems, etc. And, man, talk about the clean design- can you believe those joints look as nice as they do? It won’t be cheap no matter what size item you plan to build, but the possibilities are endless, so you may alter it as your needs change, and that makes the system worth every penny.

Gridy Fungi Shelf

Don’t be put off by the ‘Fungi’ word in the title of these Gridy Fungi Shelves, it serves merely as a reminder that they were inspired by the shelf fungus that grows horizontally out of trees in the woods and forests. Three different sizes will fit wherever you might need them. Think of a few in the hallway for display of certain special keepsakes, a couple in the kitchen for spices and small recipe books, or just one in the bedroom for your reading stack beside the bed.

3.14 White Bookcase

Well, looky here, this 3.14 White Bookcase ticks off the right boxes. Hight-gloss white? That’ll fit into almost any interior scheme. Can it float in a room? Yep, it could act as a room divider. Would you be able to line a couple up for a big bookcase wall? Yes, indeed. Anti-tip hardware? You betcha. What about levelers for wonky floors? Yep, and, it’s just under the $500 price point.

10×10 Shelves

Now, fair warning, this pair of shelves isn’t cheap. However, each 10×10 shelf may be installed in either orientation, which gives you a variety of arrangements suitable in many locations throughout your home. Maybe your office needs an extra ledge, or a spot to put extra books? Perhaps your bathroom needs more storage space for lotions, or all those beauty potions? There you go, two problems solved with one set of shelves. And, if you’re thinking that the 24″ length is a tad too small, you’ll be happy to hear that custom sizing (and wood species and finishes) are available.

Rigby Media Console

What’s that price tag doing on such a modern media console? And it can be mounted directly on the wall without the base, thus bringing the price down to $999? Hmm, perhaps we need to consider where it could live in our own homes. I especially like the option of the wall mount version, as it could be hung at any height and do the job of an entryway console or dining area buffet.

Tab Shelf

Sure, it’s a shelf, what of it? Well, this powder-coated steel shelf has a ridge down the middle to keep photos and art propped up as well as a lip on the front. That allows you to display all sorts of things without worrying about little (or big) things falling off, which makes it suitable for anywhere you need an extra display or storage space.
