Shelves

Cubic Shelf

I love love love these modern free standing shelves. I think the key to these is that you really need the space in a room to have them set away from the wall with enough room walk around all sides comfortably

.

Bender (Shelf)

I don’t know about you, but I could use several of these to tidy up my stacks of magazines (all of which have flags of things to post or research) that currently take up most of my available desk space.

How often do we find ourselves with piles of magazines hard to access?
This rack is ideal for the storage of precious documents such as books, magazines, etc.
Bender comes as one whole sheet of metal. It’s easily folded and there’s no need for additional tools. Due to its vertical storage-system less space is utilized making it also ideal for tight areas.
Bender can be hung in a variety of different ways, combining colours and positions.

Designer: Hiroshi Tsunoda, 2008
Available in White, Black, or Red.

Wings Shelf

These remind me of the Flying V Shelves, except they have more of a wing (which makes them different enough).

Waveform Shelf as a desk

We’ve posted the Waveform Shelf before, but Danielle over at Apartment Therapy came up with the idea of mounting it lower and using it as a little laptop desk. For those of us with small quarters, it’s a brilliant idea. What’s more, the fact that it has no legs means it will take up no floor space, which we all know makes a space look larger.
