Austin Floating Shelves

I like shelves very much because they are perfect for small apartments like mine. They help you organize and store things without taking floor space which is great. You simple mount them on the walls and display whatever you want to or need to like bookds, toys in the kids room, vases of flowers, ornament, flower arrangements, statues and so on. But there is one thing I hate about shelves: the way the hardware that supports them is seen underneath. That is why I think these Austin Floating Shelves are amazing, as you can’t see any such thing as a support or piece of hardware. Oh, and one important detail for parents: the kids won’t reach these shelves, so you can display the breakable items there.



Limited-edition metal chest

The ‘Rockwell metal chest of drawers’ is a beautiful classic furniture, where you can deposit a large amount of stuff. You can categorize your stuff, that you use in the ‘metal chest of drawers’, by genre (files, disks, CD, vinyl, books, etc.). For cleaning the drawers you will use a soft, dry cloth so that you will not damage the exterior look. That’s why if you want to protect the finish you should use abrasive or household cleaners.

The metal chest is made with attention and experience from crafted metal that looks like it belongs to an antique store. The chest is extremely spacious, it futures 24 drawers to fit your stuff. You can personalize your chest of drawers by using magnets on every drawer. You can use the magnets only for decorative purposes, but you can also use the magnets to know what you have in every drawer. The chest of drawers is a handy thing that you should have in your home. It could fit anywhere in your home and it will help you deposit a lot of stuff. You can also deposit stuff on the chest of drawers or under.


Green Glass Bookends

In my job I need to work with many books and I can’t keep them all at home, so I have to store them some place at the office. And since I share it with three other people I can only use a shelf for them. However, this shelf has no ends and my books do not take all the space, so I need some bookends in order to keep them standing. And because I am crazy about personalized items and also about unusual stuff, I decided to look for something more special and I found these Green Glass Bookends.


Panyl Expedit Customizes IKEA Bookshelf

Bookshelves are very important pieces of furniture because they are very simple in design and do not take too much space, but you can use them for storing or displaying a lot of things. Besides they are very easy to move from one room to another, depending on your needs. So the guys from IKEA, one of the most famous furniture manufacturers and suppliers in the world, thought it would be a good idea to offer a wide variety of shelves, among which the Expedit collection. Well, some other smart guys from Panyl had another brilliant idea: they designed some special drawers that you can use for these shelves in order to customize them as you see fit.

The Sea Defence Shelves and Table

I think we’ll soon get bored of all the conventional shaped furniture and try to find something more original for our homes. Instead of massive highly ornamented furniture we’ll begin to search for simpler modern items, special created to fit a youthful space and to preserve our freedom of movement.

The Sea Defence collection follows the principle of simplicity by offering clean-lined furniture products for your contemporary home. The collection is inspired by the sea defencers which floated by the coast of Britain. The Sea Defence gathers more types of home furniture, such as shelves, coffee tables, side tables, stools and lights. Thanks to the wide range of products you can furnish your entire room with this collection, offering it a more organic aspect. The pieces of furniture are hand crafted in Scotland. They are made from birch which gives them a more select and natural look.


Beautiful Vintage Suitcase Shelves

Ki Nassauer is the editor-in-chief of Fleamarket Style magazine, and a man who has good brain skills, because he put into practice something that looks like a genius interior design. This man is a practical one, who sees a double use for each object. On one hand, suitcases were famous by the end of the 70′s are used as pieces of furniture that decorate the room, and on the other hand those pieces of furniture are shelves where you can deposit objects.

The blue wall, on which the suitcases are mounted as shelves, gives the feeling that the man likes to travel. Oceans are blue, blue is the sky and blue is the wall, from which we conclude that this man is a traveler, making a sort of mini wall map, and bags are points on which the visitor has been.

With these type of shelves you have space to save in the room, you can store many things depending on how much shelve-suitcases you have, and you can mount the shelves all over the room if you want to fill like the cases are falling out from the sky. These bags have a hidden character, as in those movies where pirates have buried in the ground their filled bags with coins. You can also feel like you are waiting a train on the platform, among strangers, and I think these bags give you a feeling of hiking and going on the road 24 hour of 24.{found on WorthPoint}.

Modular Shelf from West Elm

Ever since my little girl was born and after that learned how to walk I had to place all the things on higher shelves because she was very curious and wanted to grab everything. In time this turned into a habit, into something that I like and I discovered I actually loved arranging all kinds of things on the walls by using different shelves. Of course the best results are obtained when the design created is dynamic and fluid, something unusual and asymmetrical like this Modular Shelf from West Elm.
