Shelving/Storage

Square Slippery Shelf

A shelving set that’s versatile: it’s nice to know you could change it up a bit every now and then, accomodating different sizes of objects or just for the heck of it.

“The Square Slippery Shelf is part of the Slippery Shelves series by Mark Righter and offers a new take on floating shelves: the shelves slide through a back panel into infinite configurations. The back panel mounts easily to the wall and the shelves slide right in.”

Back Panel Dimensions: 23.75″ wide x 23.75″ tall
Shelf Length: 5.75″ deep x 41″ long

Amber or Natural wood finish.

Sande Cubes

Now, don’t get too excited- these are the smaller cubes, not the larger side-table size. They’d be pretty useful for organizing office gear on a desk surface though…

“Sande is a new line of avant garde designs that explore the relationship between nature-inspired forms, tactility and function. The striated look of these pieces is achieved by repeat laminations of a new eco-friendly plywood from Ecuador – sande.”

6.75″W x 6.75″H x 6.75″D

Set of 3.

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.

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).”

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.”
