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.
Purchase Information:Price: $429.00

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.

What the WHAT? This Triangle shelf is crazy good: made from Baltic birch plywood, it arrives in a set of 8 triangles that can be assembled with zipties in 5 different ways (instruction book included). Plus, it’s now on sale. And, if you like the look of it, also be sure to check out the T.shelf table.

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.

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.

Goodness knows you’ve seen the Sapien bookcases around. I was reminded just how much I like them when seeing a few side by side in the apartment of Christopher Hitchens (in The Sunday Times: here’s the only photo I could find). The shorter bookcase holds up to 50 books, while the tall can accommodate up to 70.

There’s been a few similarly convenient book rests that we’ve posted (Studio 1 and Book Rest Lamp are two that come to mind) but this one has a bit more space below for a larger stack, perfect for those of us that prefer to have several books available all at once.

This varnished buffet by moca is composed of multiple compartments in several different colours, as you can see. While it’s a bit high on the budget scale, the color options are entirely want-worthy and would probably jazz up any dull room in a split second. A black steel frame supports the compartments and gives a nice line to contrast with the visual blocks of color.
Purchase Information:Price: €3899.00 excl VAT

A blackboard cabinet, offering endless ways to entertain oneself by drawing images, words, etc. on the doors… just how much do your fingers itch to pick up a piece of chalk and get busy making marks? I’m slightly breaking the rules by posting this cabinet, as it’s a brand new, handmade prototype and a only available through placing a custom order. All that said, you can purchase it by emailing Peter Jakubik (peterjakubik.info(at)gmail.com).

These wooden studios by Ferm Living are perfect for a bedside reading rest. I’ve meant to post them before now (see Vertigo Bedding pic), but as usual, it was buried under other bookmarks that I just sorted through last week. They are available in a few different colors, as you can see above, but keep in mind that it’d be easy to change the color to anything you’d want by
covering a cardboard template in fabric or paint.

Every time I go into The Conran Shop, I admire this cabinet. With such clean lines and simple white (or black) doors, it’s pretty much the perfect sideboard. It also has a subtle push-click closing that’s a nice touch. We originally posted this back in 2008, but I think it looks just as good as when it first hit the scene.
W81 x D20 x H29 in.
Also available in oak with glossy black doors.
10-12 week lead time.
$3,495.00, Buy it here.

I do believe I’m enamored with Marina Bautier’s Lap shelving. One of your fellow readers commented on the Muir Coat Rack the other day (thank you fourthandnorth) stating preference for Bautier’s Portemanteau Coat Rack, which is incredibly similar to the Muir, yet hides the mail slot and features off center pegs.
So, naturally after checking out the Portemanteau, I saw the Lap shelving and fell in love a little bit. The solid oak frame provides support for a variety of sheet metal components, including a regular bookshelf, a tray shelf, and a deep and shallow box. Now, it’s really the tray and boxes that catch the eye as they offer a distinct advantage to corral various items, giving organization options without the need for additional storage pieces.
Purchase Information:Price: £356.00 and up

Reclaimed pine and steel give this bookcase its industrial charm. At 84″ wide (7 feet!), you’ll be sure to have plenty of space for stacks of books and miscellany… lots of room for those of you with big collections.
Shipping is about $185 give or take, fyi.
Purchase Information:Price: $875.00
