Shelving/Storage

Soorikian Long Console

Finding a modern media stand is no easy task. I know this personally, of course, and am quite familiar with the many requirements needed to house those precious electronic boxes that magic images up on the tv screen. Dimensions, ventilation, wire management, and above all, how it looks… all these things are important. So, that’s why this console caught my eye. It’s certainly easy on the eyes, with a lovely walnut finish and a low profile, with slats to allow for ventilation (and visual interest). The compartments can be fitted with a drawer or a space specifically for electronics.

Walnut finish.
84″ L x 19.75″ H x 18″ D
Pricing around $3,800.00.

Cork Media Console

We’ve been fans of Iannone Design for quite some time now, so it’s no surprise that this low storage unit would eventually have its turn in the spotlight. Just under 2 feet, it’s low enough to fit a good sized flat screen above or on it without sacrificing a reasonable viewing height, and the cork doors and plywood core edges add just the right amount of natural elements to balance out the tech.

Two compartments (each with an adjustable shelf) and wire/vent holes in the maple back.

Designer/Manufacturer: Iannone Design
Material: Amber bamboo/cork/maple plywood.
70″l x 20″d x 23.5″h

Indie Furniture

Indie Furniture certainly has hit a lot of the right targets with their new customizable furniture. Rather than selling a completed product, Indie Furniture provides universal shelving joints that ultimately require you to put together yourself with your own provided wood. The benefit of this is that you can customize your shelving to your exact needs, use any type of wood you desire, save a whole lot on shipping, and enjoy the task of putting together your own set of furniture. Customization is done through their online configurator which tells you final dimensions, how many connectors are needed, the cost of the connectors, and how many wood panels are needed—all in one convenient PDF! Brilliant I’d say.

036 Tone Cabinet

If you don’t know much about parquetry except in relation to flooring, well, you’re in for a treat. Parquetry is the technique of applying wood to make decorative or geometrical patterns on things, so while you might have seen it all over the place as far as floors, maybe seeing it applied to a modern cabinet deserves a second glance. This cabinet utilizes the traditional techniques of parquetry on furniture, and, as Leif.designpark states, “is an attempt at producing furniture using effectively materials and skills established in the Japanese culture.” Sounds good to me.

Available in solid American Black walnut, American Cherry and Chestnut.
Manufacturer: De La Espada
Designed by Leif.designpark
Dimensions: 72 5/6″ W x 17 5/7″ D x 29 1/2″ H

Eastvold Classic Media Cabinet

Do you remember Kris’s post on Eastvold Custom Cabinets? They do furniture as well, and, as you can see above, it’s worth a look or two. This media cabinet has wire passages through all the shelves and partitions (and back/bottom), allowing for cable organization (very important). Plus, it’s made from solid walnut, so it’ll look a whole lot better than any assemble-it-yourself media stand.

60″ wide x 20″ tall x 20″ deep.

Ooo, check out this modular bookcase by Autoban. You stack the modules up and put all your books and magazines in between, to “create your own reading environment recalling the tall, water-side grasses of nature…” hence the name Reedy.

Bamboo Bookshelf II Hemingway

So, get this, that’s the price. There’s no ’1′ missing, nor any zeros. And why does a bamboo bookshelf that looks this cool have the reasonable price tag of $699? Apparently the retailer doesn’t use distributors; they manufacture their products on demand and sell them direct. Hmm… any takers?

Created by LDK Design.
100% Bamboo

Angle Shelf by ALS Designs

I love these angled shelves by ALS DESIGNS. Whether alone or in a group, they’re a lot more interesting than regular ol’ floating shelves (which, of course, is reflected in the price).

Left or right pointing angle shelf. Urea formaldehyde-free bamboo with a zero VOC, water resistant finish with 100% natural Tung Oil.

Designed in Brooklyn & Made in the U.S.A.

Offi Nester Stacking Boxes

These would be super handy to own if you happen to move around a lot. Whether you stack them for book storage or use them as small tables, they’re certainly a smart upgrade from plastic milk crates (which we all had at one point in our lives, so don’t feel bad if you’re guilty of owning them now). I can also see them working well in a kid’s room, only if the kids are past the climbing up furniture stage, of course.

Like Russian nesting dolls the Nester Boxes fit inside of each other for easy transport and shipping. The small footprint also cuts down on the amount of packaging needed for shipping. Each box is finely crafted in molded ply creating simple and versatile storage. They can be used stacked for book storage or if used as singles they can function as small tables.

Walnut or Birch.
Sold only in sets of 4.
dimensions: 15l x 46w x 15h

Bookwave Hanging Storage

Whoa. How amazing is this storage unit? It sort of reminds me of those shoe closet hanger thingies except bigger/better/stranger. I wonder if this could be replicated in a DIY sense, for those of us that can’t afford the price tag? I can see it working well for newspapers or magazines, or even to store clothes (if you can afford such a thing purely for wardrobe purposes).

Felt fabric and stainless steel.
Designer: Mehtap Obuz – Demirden design, Brand: Ilio

Claude Modular Collection from Jonathan Adler

Modular systems can offer much needed versatility to your home, and this system does so with a distinct mid century flair. A half drawer unit plus half seat (not shown) would be ultra handy in a entryway, and the look of the two-2 drawer units on a double base (shown at top) could look very nice as a bedroom dresser or console. The only drawback is it can get a bit pricey when you start adding up the costs.

White or Ebony.

Single base (26″ wide x 17″ deep x 9″ high): $195.00
Double base (59″ wide x 17″ deep x 9″ high): $395.00
2 Drawer Unit (32.5″ wide x 17″ deep x 15.5″ high): $800.00
Tray unit: $150.00
Tray Seat Cushion: $195.00

One Storage by Piero Lissoni for Kartell

Here’s another module storage system, this time by Piero Lissoni for Kartell. It’s made from a sturdy steel frame and acrylic resin doors, walls and floors, and will stand the test of time next to a cheaper version not made with the same materials.

I think something like this would look amazing in the kitchen.

Each unit is available with or without doors, and the base unit is available with either feet or wheels. The number of possible combinations is endless!

Price: $470.00 and up.
