Shelving/Storage

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
Dimensions: 31.5″L x 9.8″W x 7.9″H

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!

This retail site is actually pretty neat; you’re able to pick a frame and then customize it to your specifications. You can pick what size, legs, fabric, and filling you want, which means you decide how much you spend. Prices listed below are the starting price, so just for example, if you pick the Mota 84″ (shown in cream above), once you add Polyurethane Foam for the filling (+$246), Polyester Fiber for back pillows (+$124), fabric (at least +$180), and legs (as shown +$96), the price comes to about $1541, so keep that in mind.

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
