Here’s another steel wall shelf to consider, and there’s quite a few appealing colors, so, fair warning. Blush, Grey Green, Marine Blue, Putty, a deep Red, and the requisite black and white… just how will you decide? You have the choice of small (24″w) or large (40″), and there’s an added felt pad to make a softer landing spot for keys, phones, and other miscellany.
Purchase Information:Price: $89.00 - 129.00

Do you need a simple, modern shelf? This mid century inspired version is made of metal, so it’ll last longer than you (probably). Installation is straightforward (see the two holes at the top back?), so just make sure your nails or screws are level and you’re good to go. Available in black, white/grey, red, or blue.

Do you need a new bar cart? One that holds a little more liquor perhaps? You could do a hell of a lot worse than this Blackened Steel Bar Cart by Brad Sherman. It’s oversized and suitably sophisticated; there’s nothing overly ornate or precious about it, so it’ll withstand a fair bit of use and still look good. Hitting just under 30″ in height, it can float behind the sofa or stand against a wall.

Such a smart solution for versatile storage! The new Stack Collection by Debra Folz utilizes long, diamond-shaped runners to hold drawers or shelves in place. It’s easy to move the pieces around and you can customize a precise or random look depending on your preferred placement. Stacks of drawers or shelves with an optional quartz top are apart of the introductory collection, with three different wood stains to suit your color scheme.

Who needs a tiny shelf to hold smaller things? Maybe your keys or your phone? How about your prized trophy (small, though it is) or your toothbrush? C’mon, you know there’s something you can store or display on the Seed Shelf. It comes in a handful of lovely colors and has a mounting mechanism that easily fastens to the wall, making installation a snap.

If you are disorganized, and tend to stuff any available storage cabinet with everything in haphazard way, then just ignore the Haze Vitrine. If you are organized, and tend to neatly stack and arrange items, then this Vitrine was made for you. Textural armored glass hazily hides the details of what’s stored inside, while sleek powder coated metal gives an industrial edge. Think of it for a storage space for dinnerware in the dining room or for towels and beauty essentials in the bathroom.

Treat your books, art, or tchotchkes right with the Want Shelf by Andrew Coslow’s studio. The interior is kept at a natural wood grain (with protective clear coat) while the outside is finished in a white wash. The warm wood grain guides your eye towards the items on the shelf, while the end caps seemingly give them a protective embrace- no bookends necessary.

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.

Warm, solid wood wrapped in cool, smooth steel sounds like a match made in heaven. Add storage to the mix and you’ve got us hooked. The Clad 3 Door Credenza is right at the 2 grand price point (walnut is just over; hickory, just under), which is pretty reasonable considering the sturdy and sleek materials. Integrated groove pulls keeps surfaces clean while soft closure mechanisms keeps things quiet. There’s a smaller 2 Door Credenza if you’re short on space. And, even better, the Clad Collection is from Blu Dot, which is has a 20% off sale from now through October 30.

Every once in a while there’s a furniture or accessory item that makes me wish I had a totally empty house, just so I could start with one piece and build outwards, completely tailoring the whole house around one single aesthetic. Ethnicraft’s Oak Blackbird Sideboard is one of those pieces, to be sure, as its black outline neatly delineates its stack of natural oak doors, compartments and drawers. How could one be messy with this sideboard sitting in one’s dining or living room? (I’m sure you’ll try, but I’ll roll my eyes and shake my finger at you if I see even one little paper out of place.)

Need more storage space for paperwork? You could get a ho-hum boring rolling file from an office supply store, or you could shell out a little more dough for one that actually looks like a fair amount 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 or Walnut Billy Box.

One of the more exciting things to happen in the furniture retail world this month is the arrival of Commune’s collection over at West Elm. I won’t bother with talking about how this represents a shift in design sense or quality, because hopefully that will knock you over the head once you look at the pieces up close. The piece I’m most excited about is the Storage Bench, mostly because it has a mid century vibe with its black and white sliding doors and removable leather cushion. You’ll most likely see the rest of the collection (at least the Sling Chair and Marble-Topped Coffee Table) featured here on our site over the next couple of weeks, as they’re great deals to be had*.
