Shelving/Storage

Anga Shelving

I’m pleased with this new arrival to the Ikea catalog. It’s perfect for a home office and comes with a much slimmer price tag than some of those fancier Italian versions.

$510.00 as shown on left. Pricing depends on configuration.

Bee Board Storage on sale

So, yes, yes, we’ve seen this before, but they’re on sale so I’m reposting. And maybe it’s the compulsive mover in me that finds these shelves so irresistible (they’re incredibly light). Is it that they arose out of humanitarian work? Or maybe that it’s almost 50% off?

Opus Incertum Shelving Unit by Sean Yoo

Though this has some weight restrictions, it’s quite a find. Completely recyclable and indoor/outdoor friendly, it’s got credentials that justify the price.

“recipient of the design distinction award by ID Magazine, the opus incertum is made from expanded polypropylene and measures 39.4″ x 13.8″ x 39.4″ and can be stacked. useful for a moderate amount of books or as a display shelf, a single unit has a capacity of 110 pounds. please note that this capacity stays the same when you stack the units- so the base can only support 110 pounds in total. can be used indoors or outdoors. ”

Sapporo Shelving, One High

It’s so nice to know there is modular furniture out there that can grow and change according to your needs. This system can be changed depending on how high or tall or wide you’d like it, simply by adding or taking away an individual unit. The photo shown here is one unit with a steel base (the doors are sold separately), but you could afford to buy this now as a tv stand (for example) and then add on later to make a bookcase. The back is completely finished as well, so you could also use it as a room divider if you went with buying a taller unit.

“The Sapporo Shelving System by Jesús Gasca combines the elegant minimalism of Japanese design with Spain’s technically refined modernism to produce a system of case goods that meets a multiplicity of needs in a gracious and flexible format…”

Mod Cork Credenza

This provides plenty of inspiration to cover all available doors in cork. Not that you would, of course, want tacks stuck in all sorts of places, but it does liven up the possibilities for art in unexpected places. This credenza has worthy environmental credentials as well.

“Clean modern lines and a strong focus on environmentally friendly materials inform the Cork Credenza. The cork doors are made from the renewable bark of cork trees without harm to the tree itself. The cabinet utlizes rapidly renewable bamboo for the frame and FSC certified birch plywood for the interior (both materials are made with formaldehyde-free adhesives). The credenza is finished with low VOC topcoats for healthier indoor air quality.”

Joy Rotating Wood Shelf Unit

I posted this over a year ago, but I just found it from a US retailer so I thought it was worthy of a repost.

“With its ability to rotate every shelf to a new or different position, joy has a versatility that can be claimed by very few shelving units.

The upright and shelves are constructed of a honeycomb core with steel reinforcing inside and finished in a choice of bleached oak or wengé-stained oak or can be constructed of a medium density fiberboard with internal steel corner reinforcing and finished in scratch resistant embossing in a choice of various colors. the steel supporting joints are painted in a choice of black aluminum or graphite color.”

Lace Cut Storage Unit

With oak wood construction, invisible hinges, and 4 adjustable and removable shelves, this storage unit looks like a steal for the price. I’m really quite taken with it- the intricacy of the doors makes it look like it should cost at least a few more handfuls of hundred dollar bills.

39″w x 16.5″d x 65.5″h. ($125WG)

WAVEFORM by plodes studio

An accessory for the home inspired by mathematics, this shelf is really something special. Multiples on one wall would make a strong statement.
