Shelving/Storage

Ash Bath Cabinet

So what, it’s a cabinet, you say. Well, so it is, but there’s something a little special about it other than the lowish price tag. If you view it from the side, it appears to float on its two front legs, which it does thanks to a secure wall mount. This clears up the clutter of legs and adds an extra oomph to the stream lined feel of the cabinet. And do I need to remind you that minimal-ish bath storage is quite hard to find? Designed by U.K.-based Lime Studio.

Comic Shelf

Check out this Comic Shelf by Oscar Nunez. It’s a good size at just over 3 feet wide, which means it would fit it in a variety of spaces- bathroom, bedroom, hallway, you name it. It’s now available through Groopti for $249.

Klaffi Shelf

Here’s a great choice for shelving, especially in small spaces. This piece designed by Finnish Eeva Lithovius only takes up space when open; when closed, it lays flat against the wall. Whether you choose just one or several grouped together, you’ll have a home for transitory books and magazines and, of course, more options with your own space.

Wall Clamp by Brendan Ravenhill

Designer Brendan Ravenhill makes a third appearance on BLTD with his newly released Wall Clamp. We previously featured his fabulous Facet Lamps and Cord Lamp, and we’re excited to see he’s continuing an industrial theme with this pair of shelving brackets. Inspired by the functional beauty of working tools, these brackets have nothing to hide in their appearance, and work exactly you expect them to work; mount them on your walls, clamp in your shelf. As of writing, Wall Clamp is available for pre-order with an approximate ship date of Oct 1 2011.

Silo Shelf

Is it a container, a shelf, or perhaps both? Designer Charles Job wanted a shelf that was large enough for storage purposes yet was “plain and pure in its expression” as not to dominate. I can see it working well in the bathroom, kitchen, laundry, or even (as one of the suggestions) a planter for the terrace.

Lap Shelving System

So, maybe you remember the Lap Shelving System feature from earlier this year (see the post for more pics), but now that it’s available stateside, I can’t help but shine a little light on it again. The novelty of the design lies in eliminating shelves in favor of movable trays and boxes that provide organization without additional storage pieces. The powder-coated sheet metal works nicely with the solid oak frame and gives a clean modern edge to the collection. If I needed shelving this would be a serious contender.

Designed by Marina Bautier.

The Sidebar by urbancase

Do you have an extra 3 grand lying around? If so, you could spend it on this handcrafted bar cabinet by urbancase. It has a sliding panel on the front that reveals compartments inside (perfect for glassware) plus a drop front drawer and a pull-out drawer for tools and such. Mostly it’s a great looking cabinet that doesn’t necessarily look like a liquor cabinet… and, there’s got to be some sort of pleasure in opening it up for the big reveal when you have guests.

Strung Shelving Unit

Nice. These shelving units are made of 1/2″ thick formed acrylic with rubber cord to create the illusion of floating space. From a distance they look hazy, yet up close they have an interesting linear pattern.

Enchord Mobile Cabinet

Yeah, yeah, you’ve seen the Enchord Desk before, but did you really take note of the Mobile Cabinet? Priced at $429, it’s definitely more expensive than a run-of-the-mill filing cabinet, but it looks a heck of a lot sleeker than those boring (if not awful) cabinets. A recessed tray on the top means small thingamajigs will stay in reach and there’s a handy cutout for cords and cables. More supplies fit in the front drawer, with books and such in one of the lower compartments, and the removable oak file bin is accessible from either side of the cabinet.

Line Media Console

This media console strikes a nice balance between function and aesthetics. The louvered front allows a remote control to operate the devices inside while shielding the messy cords and visual clutter. The wider 70″ version is shown above, but there’s also a 35″ option for smaller spaces.

Bentwood Walnut Shelves

Am I reading this right, $369 for walnut wood shelves? Seems entirely suspicious, doesn’t it? Yet it seems to be true. Designed by Sean Dix, this shelving unit with slightly upturned ends has a distinct multi-cultural feel, which is no surprise when learning that Sean Dix has lived in Europe, Hong Kong, Fiji and the Philippines.

Available in a choice of American walnut or white oak.

Filing Cabinet No. 1

If you’re planning on following Kris’s Paper-free Living guide, then just ignore this little filing cabinet. You won’t need it. However, if you’re the type to hold on to hard copies no matter what, this cabinet is pretty decent for modern-yet-affordable office storage.

Locking file storage accommodates legal or standard sized files.
Available in Black or White.
