Shelving/Storage

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.”

Aziz Sariyer, 2009

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.

Oak Ligna Sideboard 3 Doors

What a sight for sore eyes. This could be the ultimate building block of your dining or living room. With such austerity in a storage piece, you could go all kinds of crazy with rugs, lighting, artwork, you name 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
Large: 654 x 436 x 350 mm, £135.00

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.

Sawhorse Console by Jonathan Adler

Hmm, sawhorse legs on a storage console…good or bad? I’m leaning towards good, but I’d like it a little more if there were other leg options to choose from.

Our pared down take on the classic sawhorse is used as a leg for this cabinet. Shown in white oak with ebonized doors in a surprising, chiseled finish. Touch latch door closure.

white oak with hand-planed blackened maple doors and ebonized oak legs.
Console also available in ebonized oak or oil and wax-finished natural walnut

Mayfair Steamer Secretary Trunk

I post this with considerable trepidation. On one hand, having a huge trunk to stuff all sorts of work papers and items plus a computer would be exceptionally nice in that you could close it all off and see a nice looking old trunk instead of a messy workspace. On the other hand it is absolutely huge and might look like an elephant in the corner, plus some people might assume you have a Real Doll in there, and that would not do your reputation any good whatsoever. So, it’s up to you to decide whether the risk is worth the advantage, but don’t say I didn’t warn you. (Also, if you’re into the antique steamer trunk thing, there’s a sizable collection of them (media stands, dressers, etc.) to check out at Restoration Hardware).

* Crafted by antiques dealer and furniture maker Timothy Oulton of London
* Reproduction antique steamer trunk
* Features a pull-down desktop and multiple drawers, cubbies, wire management and bookshelves
* Stands on wheels for mobility and closes for storage and privacy

Dimensions: 39″W x 29″D x 76″H

Melli Compact Lounge By Urbancase

Keep those ‘emergency supplies’ close at hand with this wall mounted bar cabinet. (Shame that the price is quite high, but maybe that means it’s made extremely well?)

safety is always first, but happy hour is a close second. named for the bar at tempelhof airport, the melli compact lounge is slim, wall mounted and provides storage for your favorite elixir. bar tools are included but liquor is not. the laminate work surface is easy to clean. and…in case you need a nightcap…the soft open hinges prevent the door from slamming.

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.

Fiberboard, Oak veneer, Clear acrylic lacquer

Width: 71 1/4 “,
Depth: 15 “,
Height: 60 5/8 “,

Cubic Shelf

I love love love these modern free standing shelves. I think the key to these is that you really need the space in a room to have them set away from the wall with enough room walk around all sides comfortably

.

Fixed or swivel bookcase, with square base. Matt lacquered wooden structure available in black, white or cappuccino, in 4 different heights. Max load: 7 kgs (15 lbs) per shelf.

Shrine Shoe Rack by Fernando A. Robert

I saw this at this year’s ICFF and was instantly drawn to the idea of highlighting a few pair of special shoes. If I had any room in my house for a walk in closet I would definitely use the shrine shoe rack.
