Shelving/Storage

Aura Media Unit

Hello, hello. With such a stream-lined look, it’s a relief that this media unit is under the $2G price point (even if only just). Let’s get to the important stuff: Super sleek look? Check. Adequate storage space? Check. Cord management/escapes? Check. Sturdiness? Craftsmanship? Could handle a freaking huge flat screen? Check, check, and check. Choose between walnut or oak wood.

Mini Stacked Shelving System

Oh, nice! There’s now a smaller version of the Stacked Shelving System by JDS Architects for Muuto. The mini version can be arranged in various ways depending on how you position the two rectangles, and do play around with the spaces in between to make more room for books and other special things. The medium shelf has the optional color backboards, and, if you want, you can also spring for green or yellow clips.

Blow Wall Shelf

Inspired by pieces of paper being scattered by the wind, these shelves are made by bending thin A4 sized steel plates into curves and angles. Each shelf can be hung up or down, and with 5 different types to choose from, you can create your own variation on the movement. By Tokyo based design studio YOY.

Paperback Wall Shelf

Now, this is the way to show off your collection of books. Each of your precious volumes is displayed on its own horizontal shelf, allowing for an impressive array that becomes the focus of a room. 13 shelves may be arranged however you wish, and the unit requires only four screws to mount to the wall, though do make sure you fasten them securely to studs, otherwise you’ll have an unhappy mess of shelving and books on the floor.

There’s also three larger shelves that have protruding tabs that will be the perfect home for larger objects or tomes. If you have the money to spend, several of these side by side or one above the other would look fantastic filling a whole wall.

Fusillo Shelf

Don’t go thinking this is a static shelf- it’s made of modules that rotate around a central axis so that it can change according to your needs. Each module has a sharp curve at its inner end, so that when it’s flipped up/down, it acts as hook, and the top of the module could serve as a bookend, as shown in the photos below. One in a smaller entryway would work wonders, or combine several in a longer hallway for more storage. Cyclists: take note of the bicycle storage option (for low seats/handlebars).

Corniche Shelving

The Bouroullec brothers bring yet another lovely and functional object for the home: the Corniche Shelves. Put a few in your entryway for keys and wallets, or perhaps one or two in the bathroom for storing jars of cotton balls and q-tips. They’d look just at home in the living room with your smaller, more valuable items on display.

Wave Cabinet

Whoa, do you see all the decorative hand-carving on this cabinet? Maybe you shy away from embellishment on your larger pieces of furniture, but I find myself drawn towards the details. Made by the company Manulution and designed by Salih Teskeredzic, each cabinet is made from solid European wood (walnut and cherry logs are bought directly from villagers in Bosnia) and is produced in two versions: one with a spindly stainless steel base and the other with wheels. Read more about the company’s history on Manulution’s website.

Smith Storage Cart

Yes, we posted this years ago (2008!), but this multipurpose unit is still pretty impressive. It serves as a detachable file cabinet, a stool, a rolling cart and, in multiples, even stackable shelves. It’s also recyclable once the plastic wheels are removed, though for the price, you’d be better off selling it to a fellow design aficionado.

Simple Shelf

Sure, a simple shelf sounds okay, but then you see the frame sort of floats away from the wall, and that means extra dimension. Not an extra dimension (don’t get too excited), just extra dimension, as in, a pinch of optical illusion when you walk by. The robots and bus make it look perfect for a kid’s room, but the collectors among us know an extra shelf or two means room to show off those few valuables/momentos that are worth keeping.

Shilf Modular Shelving System

Modular shelving? For real? Yes, it’s true, and I do have to say these look great in person, so you have my personal nod of approval. This set certainly isn’t new, as we first posted it years ago, but it’s worth remembering if you’re in the market for a storage system. The Shilf System allows for custom configurations without tools or hardware- you heard me right, no tools or hardware. You can buy the components individually or purchase a set, either way, you’ll have some great shelves that are easy to put together and easy to alter should your storage needs change.

Seed Furniture

Someone’s got the right idea here. A bureau that can switch from a changing table to a bar, and back again when the time is right. Oh, and maybe you’ll want an armoire? Add a top. It’s modular furniture that doesn’t look cheap, and offers a variety of door materials and styles. And, if a changing table/bar/bureau doesn’t fit your needs, there’s a Media Cabinet and Bookshelf worth a look.

Framework Credenza

Still on the search for media storage? Join the club. If your budget is around the $500-$700 range, you could do a whole lot worse than this credenza. It won’t take care of tidying your cables for you, but it sure does have plenty of space for all manner of receivers, DVRs, and other such gadgets. The sleek iron frame with acacia wood planks are easy on the eyes as well.
