Shelving/Storage

10×10 Shelves

Now, fair warning, this pair of shelves isn’t cheap. However, each 10×10 shelf may be installed in either orientation, which gives you a variety of arrangements suitable in many locations throughout your home. Maybe your office needs an extra ledge, or a spot to put extra books? Perhaps your bathroom needs more storage space for lotions, or all those beauty potions? There you go, two problems solved with one set of shelves. And, if you’re thinking that the 24″ length is a tad too small, you’ll be happy to hear that custom sizing (and wood species and finishes) are available.

Rigby Media Console

What’s that price tag doing on such a modern media console? And it can be mounted directly on the wall without the base, thus bringing the price down to $999? Hmm, perhaps we need to consider where it could live in our own homes. I especially like the option of the wall mount version, as it could be hung at any height and do the job of an entryway console or dining area buffet.

Tab Shelf

Sure, it’s a shelf, what of it? Well, this powder-coated steel shelf has a ridge down the middle to keep photos and art propped up as well as a lip on the front. That allows you to display all sorts of things without worrying about little (or big) things falling off, which makes it suitable for anywhere you need an extra display or storage space.

Conceal Vertical Display

You’ve most likely already seen the Conceal Bookshelf, and know of its apparently magic floating effect, and now you can trick the eye with the Vertical Display version. That’s right, make books float against your wall with just a simple bracket and voilà! cover art is displayed where everyone can see it.

BrickBox

If you find you move quite a bit, this shelving system might be something to consider. The BrickBox is an individual stacking module that can be assembled in various ways to create a larger bookcase. It’s made of white laminated plywood, and, as you might expect, is easy to assemble from a flat pack. Have several small BrickBoxes for a smaller, lower bookcase, or stock up on several large Brickboxes for a more serious storage statement. No screws are necessary- small nylon plugs keep the boxes in place. And, when it comes time to pick up and move, you already have all your books and such in boxes- handy!

Magneto

Nice! This petite shelf system uses powerful neodymium magnets to hold each shelf to a metal panel. That means you can move the shelves around as you wish, and use them to hold up papers, photos, etc. so you won’t misplace anything (ever). The back panel measures in at 18″ x 24″, so it could fit in all sorts of spots.

HS1 48-Inch Wall Shelves

The HS1 48-Inch Wall Shelves by Henry Julier have a unique bracket which acts as a shelf support as well as a bookend, and that’s good news for everyone, as there’ll be less book avalanches startling us out of our reveries. Maple shelves are combined with the steel brackets, and you can select 2, 3, or 4 shelves for your space, as well as several bracket color options. If you have more to store, not to worry, there’s the HS1 108-Inch Wall Shelves with a longer length; for a smaller option, there’s the set of 2 HS1 Wall Shelf Brackets (shown below).

Babel Modular Shelving System

Every once in a while I’ll have to plug in the name of a piece into BLTD’s search bar to see if we’ve posted it before, which is no surprise, really, considering there’s over 8,000 posts and my memory refuses to remember them all. Such was the case with this Babel Shelving System. It’s modular, so you can place the block modules in the layout you desire, as long as you maintain a staggered design to keep it structurally sound. I smell a DIY opportunity for someone crafty with a table saw and a whole lot of patience (and math skills). However, if you avoid DIY projects like the plague, luckily the pricing isn’t so prohibitive that you can’t save up for it (eventually).

Paper Cabinet

Primary colors might not be your thing, but you might want to reconsider when it comes to buying the next storage piece for your home, as Moooi has some new color options for their Paper Collection by Studio Job. If you’re not familiar with the line, each piece is made entirely of paper, cardboard and papier-mâché, and possesses enough classic lines to regally nod at the past while thumbing its nose (so to speak) at it as well with its uncharacteristic materials and colors. The Paper Cabinet, shown above, has four shelves for book and media display, with two bottom panels more storage space.

The whole piece is easy to assemble yet requires no screws, nuts or bolts; this gives the cabinet a “seamless, light sensibility with loads of personality.” Do be sure to take a look at the Paper Patchwork Cabinet (shown below) if you’re a little more brave when choosing multiple colors in your home’s scheme. There’s also the Paper Cupboard in white (also below) for the less adventurous.

LAX 4×2 Bookcase

Do you know how annoying it is when books topple over for lack of bookends? Good, because that saves me from explaining why integrated dividers in a shelving system are a sanity saver. This particular bookcase in the LAXseries gets high points for its spare, simple lines and the natural finish on the solid English walnut wood.
