Shelving/Storage

Muro Media Storage

Here’s a great, relatively inexpensive way to mount a flat panel TV and all the accoutrements (tivo, dvd player) without having to hassle with all the wiring. You attach this storage unit to the wall and paint it or wallpaper over it to make it blend in with the rest of your decor.

The Muro Media Storage systems are suitable for televisions 32″ (min) to 50″ (max) wide, weighing up to 100 lbs. Each shelf has a weight capacity of 12 lbs. Wall-mounting hardware not included. Assembly required. Made in Italy.

how does your shelving grow?

I love this shelving. Conceivably, you could use it all over a room and not need any other storage. The shelving would unite all the disparate items into one theme, thereby reducing the visual clutter.

Parsons Tower

Assembling furniture is definitely not my favorite thing to do, but saving money is, so that’s why this shelf is a sight for sore eyes…nice classic modern shape would fit very easily into any room and budget.

Assembly required.

Available in acorn, chocolate and white.

46″l x 16″w x 77″h.

Cubitec Shelving

Hmm, what’s that? Storage on a shoestring budget? Well, you could go the cement block route, as there’s invariably that time in one’s life, or you could spring for this particular shelving system. It looks pretty nice for the price, and you’d be able to buy a bunch without hurting your wallet (or maybe it would hurt a little, but not a whole lot).

“Each kit contains 18 panels to create six attached cubes. Two cubes can be doubled in depth, using the remaining parts to accommodate larger items. The cubes can be attached vertically or horizontally with the included plastic hardware, and easily anchor to the wall with common fasteners (not included) for configurations that exceed heights of three cubes. Made of hollow injection-molded polypropylene, a corrugated core allows the shelving components to be superbly strong and lightweight. Each shelf is able to hold 55 lbs. The Cubitec shelves to be equally at home in playful or sophisticated environments, and even includes a clear option for subdued retail or gallery display.”

Available in Blue, Orange, Red, or Transparent White

Dimensions per cube:
H 18.25″ W 18.25″ D 10″

Drip Shelf & Puddle Table

These two pieces are quite exceptional, and for that reason only am I neglecting to provide the price. You might have heard of Susan Bradley’s Outdoor Wallpaper (if you haven’t seen it, it’s worth a look), we posted it long ago, and recently she’s expanded her collection. These two pieces are customizable in color and size; please contact Ms. Bradley for pricing.

“Both Drip shelf and Puddle table are created from powder-coated steel in a range of colours – ‘Blood’, ‘Oil’ and ‘Milk’ (gloss red, gloss black, and gloss white respectively).”

Puddle Table, Dimensions: L540mm x W350mm x H350mm.

cube cutout media cabinet

If you don’t want your TV to be the focal point in your livingroom, this is a nice subdued way to keep it out and hide all the electronics that go with it. Now that flat screens are becoming cheaper I bet this will become more of a trend.

Chest of Drawers

This is genius. The “Chest of Drawers” consists of used drawers with a new maple compartment built to house each one, which is then cobbled together to form one conglomeration of storage. I love this because it’s a great way to utilize some older pieces that have been tossed asunder, and that it’s so visually impressive.

Thanks, B.A., for the link to matter matters!

mshelving: Media Console with Walnut doors

I just found a great company called “loadbearing” which makes all kinds of great tables, storage, etc. What’s cool about the company is that each piece they make can be customized by you, the consumer. They have a flash interface in which you can drag and drop different color styles or wood types and the price updates accordingly.

“At 81″ wide, 20″ high, and 16.8″ deep, this sturdy unit is the perfect size to support your TV, peripherals and stereo, and store your DVDs as well, hiding the embarrassing ones behind nice closed doors.”

Breeze Cabinet

First, I apologize for posting something pretty pricy. Second, how great is this thing?

And now I have a Haiku for you. Well, it’s not exactly a Haiku, but if a product description ever sounded like a Haiku without actually being one, then this would be it:

“A little wave moved by a light breeze. A little wave that implies the handle of a fold down door. The shape is pure – not a technical component in sight. Behind the door: three open sections, seperated by vertical dividers. Made in MDF, door in plywood. Two widths, two heights. Aluminum base comes in two heights. The white cabinet has a blue inside panel behind the handle, all other versions have a white one.”

Cabinet dimensions without feet: 14.5″H x 22-24″D
