Score Storage

This Score Storage by Debra Folz integrates a textile to soften up the hard edges of case goods. The interchangeable 100% wool panels are magnetically attached to the outside, so they’re easy to switch out when you want a color change. Combine several colors if you’re feeling particularly brave or stick to a nice monochrome palette; either way, it will be nice to mix things up with a quick color change.

Lap Shelving System

So, maybe you remember the Lap Shelving System feature from earlier this year (see the post for more pics), but now that it’s available stateside, I can’t help but shine a little light on it again. The novelty of the design lies in eliminating shelves in favor of movable trays and boxes that provide organization without additional storage pieces. The powder-coated sheet metal works nicely with the solid oak frame and gives a clean modern edge to the collection. If I needed shelving this would be a serious contender.

Designed by Marina Bautier.

Bentwood Walnut Shelves

Am I reading this right, $369 for walnut wood shelves? Seems entirely suspicious, doesn’t it? Yet it seems to be true. Designed by Sean Dix, this shelving unit with slightly upturned ends has a distinct multi-cultural feel, which is no surprise when learning that Sean Dix has lived in Europe, Hong Kong, Fiji and the Philippines.

Available in a choice of American walnut or white oak.

The shorter bookcase holds up to 50 books, while the tall can accommodate up to 70.

Lap Shelving System

I do believe I’m enamored with Marina Bautier’s Lap shelving. One of your fellow readers commented on the Muir Coat Rack the other day (thank you fourthandnorth) stating preference for Bautier’s Portemanteau Coat Rack, which is incredibly similar to the Muir, yet hides the mail slot and features off center pegs.

So, naturally after checking out the Portemanteau, I saw the Lap shelving and fell in love a little bit. The solid oak frame provides support for a variety of sheet metal components, including a regular bookshelf, a tray shelf, and a deep and shallow box. Now, it’s really the tray and boxes that catch the eye as they offer a distinct advantage to corral various items, giving organization options without the need for additional storage pieces.

This tilted bookcase is just strange enough to be interesting, yet, thankfully, despite that allure its price tag remains well under the $1G mark. Whether you use it as a room divider or as a normal bookcase against a wall, it’ll display your treasures in a minimal (and interesting) way.

SR Bookcase

Do you remember Scout Regalia of garden box fame? Well, now they’ve introduced the first piece in their indoor furniture collection and it doesn’t disappoint. The SR Bookcase is available as a 1, 2, or 3 bay system, which means you can customize it to fit whatever space you need and there’s a whopping 210 paint colors and sealed wood options to choose from. Standing at 7′-8′ high with 5 shelves and 2 adjustable shelves within the base cabinets, I’d say it’s sure to fit a fair share of books and such.

Cubo by LOT61

Movable storage units are handy to have, especially if you get bored with the way your furniture is arranged or if you move around a lot. Just recently I ran across these Cubo storage units by LOT61, a small furniture workshop founded by Datumzero Design Office. Doesn’t mean much to you unless you’re in the biz, I guess, but they specialize in contemporary storage pieces, all of which are particularly nice and worth checking out if you’re in the market for consoles or credenzas. We’ll most likely do other posts on more of their collection soon.

Mix Box Set by The Utility Collective

There’s nothing like a bunch of boxes to fit random storage needs. This set by The Utility Collective includes six boxes of varying size that you can stack any way you want. If you get bored, just mix/move it around. It’s also nice that the more squarish boxes can double as end tables if needed.

Woody Shelving System

This rather simple shelving system gives a sense of lightness despite its size. Soap-treated oak sticks, powder-coated steel and screws give the frame strength and stability, and don’t worry if pink and sky blue don’t quite suit your interior plans, as both sizes are available in three different colors.

Material: Soap-treated oak, Powder-coated steel
