Shelves

Readers’ Nest

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.

Studio 1 Oak

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.

Honeycomb Flexible Shelves

How’s a bit of bright yellow to cheer up your January blues? These Honeycomb units are by Quinze and Milan, who you might know for their Primary Poufs. Honeycomb geometry aside, they look to be quite the versatile shelving option. Made from thin walled polyethylene, the units are held together with a riveting system which allows for stacking up to 7 meters in two directions. You also have the option to remove a few units within the wall if you should so wish.

Keep in mind the $297 price is for one unit only, so it could get expensive if you went bonkers with them… maybe start with just a few and see if you need more?

Available in Honey, Black, White, Mint, Cherry, or Light Grey.
(Cherry, Mint, and Light Grey are a bit higher in price at $318.00)

Also, these are available from My Urban Child, whose website is the spitting image of home furniture + patio, so I’m guessing they are two heads on the same body of business.

Holly Shelf Bracket

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.

Fold Shelf

Take a look at this shelf: half wall sculpture and half functional storage object, it’s made from one flat sheet of metal which is then hand folded along perforated cuts, giving a stitched detail along the edges. There’s also two orientations you can use, which gives you an option to mix it up every so often.

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 neededall in one convenient PDF! Brilliant I’d say.

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.

Catcher by formfreunde

Check out this odd trapezoidal wall storage ‘catcher’. I’m not quite sure how it attaches to the wall or how much weight it holds, so you might ask before you buy, but it’s definitely an interesting storage option. It sort of reminds me of the Barnacles by Plodes Studio (in that it shares an organic faceted shape and functions as wall storage).

The Catcher is a practical wall covering. It consists out of as many elements as you like. The elements can be folded together to form one object. The Photos show a Catcher consisting out of eight modules. You can design you own catcher and order the amount of modules you need, or you tell us the size your catcher should have and we will suggest a configuration. The modules can be connected side by side or back to back, they can not be connected side to back.

PP Plastic.
The catchers sides have a length of approx. 34cm and it is approx. 17cm deep.
The price stated is for one module only.
