Whoa, this Oblique Shelf by BuiltIN studio qualifies as a top notch eye catcher for any room. The angles are impressive to be sure (see the side view) and it’ll hold your various possessions with some serious style. Each shelf is hand-made of solid American hardwoods and are finished with a low VOC polyurethane.
BuiltIN studio is a design studio based in Brooklyn, New York.

This tilted bookcase is just strange enough to be interesting, yet, thankfully, despite that allure its price tag remains well under the $1G mark. Whether you use it as a room divider or as a normal bookcase against a wall, it’ll display your treasures in a minimal (and interesting) way.

From the same company that produces the Cherner Chair comes this plywood construction credenza. Plywood construction doesn’t sound so fancy, but who needs fanciness when you get sturdy, good looking storage that’s built to last? It’s got mitered joinery and molded plywood pulls and legs that speak of quality with a nice midcentury vibe that we all (or most of us) know and love.

Do you remember Scout Regalia of garden box fame? Well, now they’ve introduced the first piece in their indoor furniture collection and it doesn’t disappoint. The SR Bookcase is available as a 1, 2, or 3 bay system, which means you can customize it to fit whatever space you need and there’s a whopping 210 paint colors and sealed wood options to choose from. Standing at 7′-8′ high with 5 shelves and 2 adjustable shelves within the base cabinets, I’d say it’s sure to fit a fair share of books and such.

Movable storage units are handy to have, especially if you get bored with the way your furniture is arranged or if you move around a lot. Just recently I ran across these Cubo storage units by LOT61, a small furniture workshop founded by Datumzero Design Office. Doesn’t mean much to you unless you’re in the biz, I guess, but they specialize in contemporary storage pieces, all of which are particularly nice and worth checking out if you’re in the market for consoles or credenzas. We’ll most likely do other posts on more of their collection soon.

While $175 for two shelf brackets seems a little steep in terms of price, there is something to be said for brackets that also double as super thin bookends. Two functions in one slim package sounds pretty good, especially if you think of the occasional avalanche of books due to an inappropriately placed bookend and how nice it would be to not worry about that sort of thing (ever) again… the price seems a tad bit more reasonable.

Jonah Takagi is a Japanese/American RISD graduate who I discovered through the Matter Made line sold at Matter. His work is simple and beautiful. This piece is made of birch and can be used as a storage system or room divider and it packs flat and uses no fasteners.

There’s nothing like a bunch of boxes to fit random storage needs. This set by The Utility Collective includes six boxes of varying size that you can stack any way you want. If you get bored, just mix/move it around. It’s also nice that the more squarish boxes can double as end tables if needed.

Talk about a modern classic, this sideboard from Atlantico (the people behind De La Espada) is sure to be a piece that stays with you no matter how many times you move. There’s a choice of American white oak, American black Walnut or American cherry, all of which are sourced from sustainable forests. And if you’re balking at the price tag, be sure to look closely at the joinery; as is often the case, you get what you pay for.
