Sussex Collection

These are quite lovely. If I needed a storage-type cabinet for a wide-screen television, I think I’d invest in this one without a second thought. There’s also several other sizes for your other storage needs.

Natural or wenge stained oak veneer; powder-coated steel frame.

Hilton Sideboard

I think this sideboard would fit the bill for storage/surface needs. It’s sleek and contemporary, has a nice large surface for depositing keys or office papers or food (or whatever else might strike your fancy), and it has nice options for the top. I’m not one to drop lots of money on just one thing, but it bears reminding that you usually get what you pay for, and I think this would be worth every penny.

Wood lacquered in silver. Mirror glass doors with aluminum frame. Top: wenge, bleached oak, cherrywood, white or silver lacquered

Easyshelf(s)

This is something to take note of: a shelf that can be mounted on the wall various ways by folding it whichever way you want. It’d fit in lots of different settings as well…bathroom, office, living, etc…

“The shelf achieves its special form when folded. Its surface is of brushed aluminium, which, together with the continuous band of black industrial plastic between the two aluminium layers, determines the shelf’s appearance. Because the material is just three millimetres thick and the folds characterize the shelf’s form, the shelf may appear either as a simple line or a folded sculpture, depending on your vantage point. The shelf’s form is stable and can be stressed between the folds with
of a load of, for instance, up to 31 CDs or several books.”

23.5″W x 5.6″D (.12″ thick)

Thomas Wold Block Party Credenza

The panels of this credenza move around to display your worldly goods in a coy sort of way. The lower shelf is tall enough for lp’s and there are holes in the back sized perfectly for cords of all sorts.

Jazz Buffet

The shape and proportion of this buffet looks remarkably like my walnut knoll credenza. For a little DIY, you can make this look a lot better by simply getting rid of the spindly 50′s legs and replace them with something more architectural looking, like these Ikea kitchen cabinet legs. My Knoll credenza has 6 legs (center supports in front and back), so I would purchase two sets of the legs.

This would be perfect in an office (as intended by Knoll) or you can also use it as an entertainment center.

Cloud Shelving System

It seems to me that we would’ve posted this before, though I can’t seem to find any record of it. And if we have, I think it’s well worth another entry. It’s such a great design and so terribly great-looking as to inspire need (as in, I need that piece of furniture). And, of course, it’s by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec for Cappellini (2004).

“the cloud shelving system…has garnered much attention due to its original form and its use of innovative materials. cloud allows for the repetition of elements which can be stacked and aligned to create large bookshelves or room dividers. in theory, there is no limit to the size of a structure other than the size of the space containing it. cloud is made of a high-density polystyrene and is available in 4 colors: white, light green, dark green or red.”

Bamboo Stagger Shelf

Whenever there’s a comma in a price tag, I get a little nervous. But I think something like this would be timeless, so the comma would be a relatively small price to pay for something that would last decades.

“A striking shelving unit designed to maximize displays areas through a variety of spaces. Irregular and asymmetrical shelving sections opens up the possibilities for a less traditional display of objects. The Stagger Shelf is made of toasted vertical grain bamboo and finished with organic, non-toxic Hard Oil. Stainless steel screws and adjustable steel feet.”

Spinny Cabinet

From the studio of Joe Columbo (currently being run by Ignazia Favata) comes the Spinny Cabinet which rotates around a central spine. Also available is a wall mounted version. I am pretty excited about that one. I think it would not only be visually stunning but also think of how convenient it would be.

Rustic Wood Shelf

Oh, I do believe this little shelf is worth highlighting. The unfinished edge gives it a nice natural texture and makes it a bit more special than just any ol’ modern floating shelf.

“Made from colonial-era railroad ties which have been procured from Northern India, these recycled solid teak shelves have been waxed and polished to a deep sheen. No two pieces are alike. The width of each shelf may vary. Wall-mounting hardware is included. Not recommended to support heavy weight.”

18″ l x 5″-7″ w x 2″ h

Shadow Box Tower

This piece would be perfect as a floating divider or along a wall in multiples. But, hey, if you just want one against a wall to show off your stuff, then that would be good too. There’s also a shorter version with four openings/cubicles.

Cold rolled steel
Hand-applied patina adds depth and texture

Scrapile crate and tray

We’ve posted stuff from the Scrapile guys before. If you’ve forgotten, here’s the run down. I think their work is pretty awesome. They take something that would have just filled our landfills and turn it into something useful and nice to look at. Also, they use non-toxic glue coupled with their intense woodworking skills.

“Each item is handcrafted and unique, and may contain a wide range of materials, including poplar, walnut, bamboo, plywood, yellow pine and cherry. The striations of the wood not only look fabulous, they also will pick up on and coordinate with whatever dominant wood color you have in your décor.”

oblique solid oak by marcel wanders

I thought this a clever idea for magazines…no doubt that some enterprising soul will be able to make this for a little less than what this particular one is selling for, but nevertheless, it’s worth pointing out.
And, I guess if you’ve got the money, you might as well spend it on this, right?
