Rock N Roll Shelving System

This is a little similar to the OTO100 Storage System obviously, but it’s different in that it’s made from paperboard rolls and is velcro’d together. Anybody see a DIY project waiting to happen? Just have to find some paperboard rolls…

Made in Sweden, Rock’n’Roll is a unique eco-shelving system. Made from paperboard rolls and velcro’d together however you like – fun and functional.The price is for five units in different sizes.

The rock’n roll shelves comes in set of five different sizes: 32cm, 37cm, 41cm, 47cm and 52cm diameter.

Ikea PS Nybygge Shelving unit

Okay, so if this doesn’t give you some amount of hope for big box retailers (of the blue and yellow kind), then I don’t know what will. Maybe we’ll all become immune to this shelving unit’s charm after walking past it a bajillion times, but presently the staggered supports and overall look have me slightly swooning. $229, folks, $229…such a reasonable price for a pretty sizable bookshelf.

Fulton Desk, Bookcase, Media Console

This is bare bones minimal with a tiny bit of rustic wood to warm it up. I’d say the prices are reasonable, or at least they don’t hurt the eyes.

Fulton’s minimal lines and mixed materials make a streamlined, rustic-modern statement. The warmth of the richly-figured, reclaimed teak veneer top contrasts beautifully with the industrial black metal frame, finished in three steps for an oxidized effect.

OTO100 Storage System

I think I love this.

PIL BREDAHL ON THE DESIGN: “The storage system is made for the modern nomad and inspired by the fact that we move more often in our lives than ever before. It can be separated and assembled very easily. It has a clear sculptural value and you can put it in the formations you like best. When it’s not used for books, magazines, clothes, etc., It can lay on the floor, each ring inside the bigger ring creating a beautiful pattern.”

Hidden Bookcase

Who doesn’t wish they had a hidden door or secret passageway? My childhood readings of Nancy Drew (and the Hardy Boys) lodged that particular want early on, and looky here, if I had 3 G’s I could make that wish come true.

If you’re the do-it-yourself-er type, woodweb.com has drawings for a Hidden-Pivot Bookcase Door worth checking out.

Hidden bookcases smoothly slide on a floor-based rail (included) and conceal any room in your home or office. They open and close very quietly–by pulling–and exhibit no sign of entry when closed. Up to 500 pounds of books and decorations can be placed on the shelves. Instructions are included, but we can set up installation if desired.

Made of oak wood, maple wood or cherry wood, high-strength rail system
Large: 88″h x 66″w
Medium: 88″h x 54″w

Versatile storage design shifts positions, shifts functions, shifts perspective from upright bookcase to horizontal media console. It shifts from positive to negative space too, with a finished, closed back square and open rectangle on each of three fixed shelves (which also means it can be used as a room divider). Align vertical multiples dramatically down the wall, or you can even stack two or three on their sides. Engineered wood is finished in a new rich teak melamine. Also in black melamine.

Studio North Design Modular Shelving

Pictured in the post below (classic study solution), this modular shelving unit is a great alternative to the basic elements most of us succumbed to in our university years; not only can you combine the elements in whichever way you choose (low tv stand, medium credenza-ish bookcase, etc.) but you can add to it as your needs grow.

“Sabrina and Dylan Jones launched Studio North Design (SND) in 2001, bringing attention to an often overlooked material: forest-salvaged, old-growth Douglas fir. A straight-grained, amber-colored wood, it’s acquired through forest salvage logging, where skilled sawyers mine usable wood out of logs that have long since fallen in the forests of the Pacific Coast. Their Modular Shelving (2004) refines the basic concept of dorm-room-style cinderblock and plank shelving. Consisting of simple blocks and shelves in coordinating sizes, the additive system means that shelves can be added and taken away as desired. Compose the pieces horizontally as a credenza or media storage, or build vertically to create a bookshelf. The Joneses’ non-wasteful approach to design includes up-cycling: Remnants from the creation of one product become the basis of another. It’s their belief that wood used in its natural state, that’s consciously sourced, is one of the most eco-friendly materials available.”

Medium Box: H 14″ W 7″ D 11.25″, $165.00

Kast Tall Storage

While this might be high on the price scale, it sure has some nice attributes: the very large size and the odd (but good) door colors.

Kast is a storage unit that is modular in structure. Supplemented by two simple wooden crates and a further basic module, a shelf/wall cupboard combination arises. Van Severen paid special attention to the color for the sliding doors, which not only emphasize Kast’s elegant and yet seemingly classical proportions, but also give it a fresh and optimistic sense.
Kast tall storage is offered with eight sliding doors in pink, dark green, bronze-grey, dark blue, sulphur yellow and bright white powder-coated sheet aluminum.

The Pisa Book Shelf

This is such a strange bookshelf…it is definitely more sculptural, and at just over 5′, I’d almost be tempted to have a few floating around a big room, or maybe just lined up against a large wall?…hmm…

“Tall sculptural bookshelf makes a strong statement in any environment. Dark wood veneer (sonokeling), certified harvest.”
