Shelving/Storage

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.

Bender (Shelf)

I don’t know about you, but I could use several of these to tidy up my stacks of magazines (all of which have flags of things to post or research) that currently take up most of my available desk space.

How often do we find ourselves with piles of magazines hard to access?
This rack is ideal for the storage of precious documents such as books, magazines, etc.
Bender comes as one whole sheet of metal. It’s easily folded and there’s no need for additional tools. Due to its vertical storage-system less space is utilized making it also ideal for tight areas.
Bender can be hung in a variety of different ways, combining colours and positions.

Designer: Hiroshi Tsunoda, 2008
Available in White, Black, or Red.

Stack

I saw this in person recently (at Matter, which might be my new favorite store), and I have to say it is one impressive piece. Sure, it looks more like an art object than a usable storage tower, but it’s delightfully both.

Stack is a tower of ‘floating’ drawer units that can be pushed and pulled in both directions. This will often result in a random and irregular formality that is both fascinating and unusual to the eye. Stack is available with 8 or 13 drawers.

Designer: Shay Alkalay
Materials: MDF, plywood
*Dimensions and pricing are based on the 8-drawer version. Contact Matter for further pricing.

Naked Line Large Cabinet

MIO’s Jaime Salm and Stephen Cooke utilize particleboard in this smart storage cabinet.

Much of today’s contemporary furniture incorporates hollow-core materials covered by various veneers. In direct contrast to these pieces is Naked Line, a cabinet that proudly reveals the sustainable materials we have come to hide. Taking advantage of the color, texture and cost efficiency of formaldehyde-free particleboard, this cabinet represents a naked and honest approach to affordable furniture. Made from 100 percent pre-consumer waste wood, this piece has sturdy sliding doors and back panels made from powder-coated steel.

Designers: Jaime Salm, Stephen Cooke
Measurements: 16 in/41 cm high, 32 in/81 cm width, 15.5 in/39 cm depth

Showtime Multileg Cabinet

Interchangeable legs and a drop-dead blue color qualifies this cabinet for my wish list…unfortunately, the price makes it go into the ‘if-I-win-the-lottery’ subcategory.

Interchangeable legs support this Showtime Cabinet as it expresses dichotomy and symbiosis. Things internal and external play out in organic forms and established classicism, resting against each other, elegantly coexisting. Noticeable inspiration comes from classical MGM musicals in terms of the dramatic and personified shapes for which the Spanish designer seems to have a penchant.

Wings Shelf

These remind me of the Flying V Shelves, except they have more of a wing (which makes them different enough).

Functional shelving with a graphic edge! Store books, magazines, kitchenware… or leave empty as decorative wall-art! Group several units together to intensify the lighting and shadows. Still not enough drama? Then try a version with perforated filters and amplify the contrast!

Designer: Nauris Kalinauskas

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.”

Pawnee Media Console

Modern media consoles usually seem to be super shiny and pretty expensive. Not that there’s anything wrong with super shiny, but I do like how this ‘rough hewn’ piece gives a casual warmth and contrast to any gadgets displayed on top…and it’s under the $1G mark (even if just barely).

Low flung walnut media console with rough hewn doors that add a contrasting texture to the satin finished frame. Sitting on scaled down beam legs, the Pawnee also features Corian inserts around the finger pulls.

Cloud Shelf

This is pretty darn cute, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be just a kid’s shelf. It could work just fine in a bathroom or wherever.

Adorable as it is functional, our brand new Cloud Shelf provides storage for books, furry friends and even a small back pack! Each shelf is laser cut from heavy grade metal and features a 6 inch deep shelf + hook for all their modern treasures. A stylish and decorative storage solution with an affordable price tag!

You can pick what size, legs, fabric, and filling you want, which means you decide how much you spend.
