FURNISHINGS

Modular Shelf by Wud

Everyone is familiar with ledge-type shelves, and as handy as they are to display objects, it’s nice to see some variety. The Modular Shelf by Wud has taken the idea to the next step by adding a contrast color and two small cubby-type boxes. A wide variety of colors and woods are available, which means you can pick the perfect combination to accent your room. The lacquer seems to be applied with the utmost care, and quality like that certainly makes the price tag that much more legitimate.

“This sculptural yet functional shelf is perfect on its own or grouped together. The painted interior of the shelves contrasts nicely with the rich color of the wood. This shelf comes with a mounting template for easy installation.”

Material: Walnut, Lacquer.

Inside/Accent Colors: Ice Blue, Light Blue, Cream, Red, Olive, Burnt Orange
Wood: Mahogany, Walnut, Maple, Wenge, Zebrawood,

Round Leather Ottoman

Silver isn’t your most common choice for a footrest, or for any other upholstered piece of furniture for that matter, and maybe that’s why it’s so appealing. If you’re not into the silver, it’s also available in chocolate.

“Sleek, chic leather is upholstered over a dense foam cylinder. Indispensable as a side table, footrest, nightstand or extra seat.”

24″diam x 13″h.

The Swag Leg Desk, designed all the way back in 1958, has found a new use with today’s Laptop computers. Temporarily and virtually obsolete, the desk has been altered only slightly for today’s needs to allow for cable management.

OFFI Overlap Tray

For those of you with a 30 second commute, I recommend the Offi Overlap Tray. Seriously, you don’t just want to put your laptop on your lap for a few reasons, namely radiation and excessive heat to your body, but also for the safety of your laptop to allow for the fans to cool so it doesn’t overheat the motherboard.

MASH Studios LAX Wall Mounted Shelf

If you have a spare wall and a need for storage, I really think you can’t go wrong with this LAX wall mounted shelf. Wall mounted storage is perfect for adding storage without making your room seem smaller. There is just something about being able to see the floor in it’s entirety that makes the room seem larger.

Square Slippery Shelf

A shelving set that’s versatile: it’s nice to know you could change it up a bit every now and then, accomodating different sizes of objects or just for the heck of it.

“The Square Slippery Shelf is part of the Slippery Shelves series by Mark Righter and offers a new take on floating shelves: the shelves slide through a back panel into infinite configurations. The back panel mounts easily to the wall and the shelves slide right in.”

Back Panel Dimensions: 23.75″ wide x 23.75″ tall
Shelf Length: 5.75″ deep x 41″ long

Concrete Console

The good news is if you can’t afford to buy this console, you might be able to make one like it. Concrete certainly adds an industrial feel to a space or room, and provides a nice contrast to other materials.

Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg Hare

The Nymphenburg figures are simply breathtaking.

“A Nymphenburg figure can consist of over 100 pieces, carefully assembled by a figure master whose craft runs so deep that they even craft the tools they use to work on the piece. The unparalled detail and realism are hallmarks of Nymphenburg quality.”

Sande Cubes

Now, don’t get too excited- these are the smaller cubes, not the larger side-table size. They’d be pretty useful for organizing office gear on a desk surface though…

“Sande is a new line of avant garde designs that explore the relationship between nature-inspired forms, tactility and function. The striated look of these pieces is achieved by repeat laminations of a new eco-friendly plywood from Ecuador – sande.”

6.75″W x 6.75″H x 6.75″D

Set of 3.

easy storage

This is a pretty cool shelving system. Once the back panel has been installed, the shelves essentially “hook” in and can be removed easily for transport. Why would you need to transport, you may ask? I can see this being a pretty great system for an inbox. It’s up and out of the way when you’re not using it, and when it’s time to tackle it (say, once a week) then you just pop it out and start working.

Also, can be used to provide support for electronic devices as cables are concealed inside the back panel.

Back panel is available in either white or aluminum with your choice of three shelving colors.
