Bookwave Hanging Storage

Whoa. How amazing is this storage unit? It sort of reminds me of those shoe closet hanger thingies except bigger/better/stranger. I wonder if this could be replicated in a DIY sense, for those of us that can’t afford the price tag? I can see it working well for newspapers or magazines, or even to store clothes (if you can afford such a thing purely for wardrobe purposes).

Felt fabric and stainless steel.
Designer: Mehtap Obuz – Demirden design, Brand: Ilio
Size of the hanging storage : L 60 cm x D 30 cm x H 210 cm – Ceiling rail : L 100 cm, Ceiling fixation included.

Claude Modular Collection from Jonathan Adler

Modular systems can offer much needed versatility to your home, and this system does so with a distinct mid century flair. A half drawer unit plus half seat (not shown) would be ultra handy in a entryway, and the look of the two-2 drawer units on a double base (shown at top) could look very nice as a bedroom dresser or console. The only drawback is it can get a bit pricey when you start adding up the costs.

White or Ebony.

Single base (26″ wide x 17″ deep x 9″ high): $195.00
Double base (59″ wide x 17″ deep x 9″ high): $395.00
2 Drawer Unit (32.5″ wide x 17″ deep x 15.5″ high): $800.00
Tray unit: $150.00
Tray Seat Cushion: $195.00

One Storage by Piero Lissoni for Kartell

Here’s another module storage system, this time by Piero Lissoni for Kartell. It’s made from a sturdy steel frame and acrylic resin doors, walls and floors, and will stand the test of time next to a cheaper version not made with the same materials.

I think something like this would look amazing in the kitchen.

Each unit is available with or without doors, and the base unit is available with either feet or wheels. The number of possible combinations is endless!

Price: $470.00 and up.

Hudson Media Cabinet

What a lovely media storage cabinet. It’s solid walnut (or cherry, if you prefer) with a stainless steel base. The shelves are large enough to accommodate the giant cable boxes that Time Warner seem to keep giving us, as well as all your dvd players, Roku’s, cable modems, etc. It’s pretty pricey, but it is one of those pieces that you will certainly have forever and ever.

Dimensions: 82w 20d 24h

Catcher by formfreunde

Check out this odd trapezoidal wall storage ‘catcher’. I’m not quite sure how it attaches to the wall or how much weight it holds, so you might ask before you buy, but it’s definitely an interesting storage option. It sort of reminds me of the Barnacles by Plodes Studio (in that it shares an organic faceted shape and functions as wall storage).

The Catcher is a practical wall covering. It consists out of as many elements as you like. The elements can be folded together to form one object. The Photos show a Catcher consisting out of eight modules. You can design you own catcher and order the amount of modules you need, or you tell us the size your catcher should have and we will suggest a configuration. The modules can be connected side by side or back to back, they can not be connected side to back.

PP Plastic.
The catchers sides have a length of approx. 34cm and it is approx. 17cm deep.
The price stated is for one module only.

Loadbearing MShelving

Customizable storage systems aren’t really a new thing, but Loadbearing’s MShelving does have a certain appeal with its industrial frame with pick-your-own door color options. With somewhat reasonable price points, it could fit your storage needs quite well.

MShelving… allows you to create your own look from a wide range of interchangeable colored steel and wood veneer sliding doors and half- and full- height drawers. MShelving was designed by Mathias Frei of Zurich, and is produced in Switzerland and Italy. It combines a sturdy, fairly industrial-feeling steel shelving system base with a refined, simple and attractive sliding door system… The shelving unit itself is made of galvanized steel. The wood finish doors are wood veneers (all from sustainable forests) on a particle board base with a galvanized steel handle edge, and the color and metallic finish doors are made of powder-coated steel.

Colors: Wooden Veneers, 21 Colors, Metal Finishes

Note: Keep in mind the prices shown below are for the units only, the price will increase depending upon how many doors you want and what wood or color option you choose.

media console unit: 81″w, 20h, and 16.8″d, starts $526.00

Cigar Box Wardrobe for Droog

B-LINE Zig-Zag Modular Bookcase

This modular bookcase can be arranged in several different ways to fit your space. From the description it seems as if two of the elements are included in the price, yet take note that it looks like three are shown in the above picture. Four would be needed to create a complete column or circular shape.

“The two elements that make it up can be alternated in such a way as to obtain a partitioning structure or a wall bookcase, or can simply be used to make up half-circles or columns.”

Four Degrees by MicroWorks

I love this so much it hurts my feelings. It’s still currently in prototype, but frankly I’ve been bored with all the available options for shelving so I wanted to post something a little more exciting. From a Tokyo based design firm called MicroWorks–the designers discovered that books tilted at a 4 degree angle don’t accumulate dust as quickly as books which are stored flat. Whatever the reason for the tilt, I love it.

Shelving Unit from Brick House

Seeing as I’m mightily impressed by this shelving unit, you might be too. Morgan of The Brick House built this unit out of plumbing pipe and fittings for about $200 (and apparently a lot of frustration). It sure looks good, and if you’re brave enough to embark on this DIY project, check out the supply list here.

Muuto Stacked Shelf System

Apologies for the crazy price linkage on this shelf system, but it took a while to figure out who had the correct listings and for the best price, and apparently there’s only one U.S. retailer (is that right?). The randomness possible with stacking blocks just can’t be beat sometimes…you can buy however many you need and organize them however you want. I like the mixing of pine and white as well, with green clips(!).

Available in 3 sizes / building blocks:
Small: 218 x 436 x 350 mm, £75.00
Medium: 436 x 436 x 350 mm, £105.00
