Comic Shelf

Check out this Comic Shelf by Oscar Nunez. It’s a good size at just over 3 feet wide, which means it would fit it in a variety of spaces- bathroom, bedroom, hallway, you name it. It’s now available through Groopti for $249.

Klaffi Shelf

Here’s a great choice for shelving, especially in small spaces. This piece designed by Finnish Eeva Lithovius only takes up space when open; when closed, it lays flat against the wall. Whether you choose just one or several grouped together, you’ll have a home for transitory books and magazines and, of course, more options with your own space.

Wall Clamp by Brendan Ravenhill

Designer Brendan Ravenhill makes a third appearance on BLTD with his newly released Wall Clamp. We previously featured his fabulous Facet Lamps and Cord Lamp, and we’re excited to see he’s continuing an industrial theme with this pair of shelving brackets. Inspired by the functional beauty of working tools, these brackets have nothing to hide in their appearance, and work exactly you expect them to work; mount them on your walls, clamp in your shelf. As of writing, Wall Clamp is available for pre-order with an approximate ship date of Oct 1 2011.

Silo Shelf

Is it a container, a shelf, or perhaps both? Designer Charles Job wanted a shelf that was large enough for storage purposes yet was “plain and pure in its expression” as not to dominate. I can see it working well in the bathroom, kitchen, laundry, or even (as one of the suggestions) a planter for the terrace.

Strung Shelving Unit

Nice. These shelving units are made of 1/2″ thick formed acrylic with rubber cord to create the illusion of floating space. From a distance they look hazy, yet up close they have an interesting linear pattern.

T.SHELF by J1studio

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.

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.

Oblique and Check Shelf

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.

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.
