The Quby storage unit by Stefan Bench

Quby is an unconventional storage unit designed by B-line for items such as books and DVDs. It has a playful design and a versatile look that makes it great for modern and contemporary homes. Quby was designed by Stefan Bench for B-Line. It was conceived as a unit for displaying books of all sizes and DVDs. It’s a versatile piece of furniture composed of several modules with the same dimensions that have been stacked in order to create a compact unit.

Each individual module can also be used as such. However, it can also be used to create a more elaborate shape and to form the bookcase that you see in the pictures. The modules are made of rotomoulded polyethylene. All the modules have the same shape, same dimensions and same design. The only difference between them is that they feature different colors. This way you can combine them to form a multicolored piece of furniture.

There is never enough storing space for different items in a house, especially if there are more than two people living there.

This Gilt Metal Faux Bamboo Etagere is perfect for whatever purpose you might have in mind. First of all it looks great, as it is made of metal, but looks like bamboo, so it combines the good looks of the bamboo with the resistance of the metal.

The Tree Bookcase

Considering nature and books are two of my biggest interests, the next item is a dreamy one, it’s a projects I’m jealous I didn’t think about thirst. I’m talking about the Tree Bookcase designed by Roberto Corazza. The product is a shelve case designed as a tree. The support is opened in both sizes. This is an advantage because it gives the impression of space and light when it’s fixed on the wall, on one hand, on the other hand it allows you to install in independently in the middle of the room. You will have access to the shelves from each side and it will not block the light.

This bookcase is made from single-cast plastic case so it is easy to move and fix it wherever you want. Being made from a single piece it also has a uniform design and color and it is rigid. You mustn’t fear it will break or modify its shape under the book’s burden.

The modular Jacob bookcase by Clark Art Center

Bookcases aren’t what they used to be before. However, this doesn’t mean they should be. Change is not always bad. In fact, in this case we can say that bookcase designs have improved significantly. The Jacob bookcase is an example that shows exactly how different a modern bookcase can be from a traditional one. The Jacob bookcase is a modular piece of furniture that has a flexible design and that can take different shapes according to the space available and the user’s needs.

The Jacob bookcase was designed by the Brazilian studio Clark Art Center. The bookcase has a design inspired by the Jacob’s Ladder toy. It has a design as playful as the toy itself but on a whole different dimension. The Jacob bookcase is composed of five modules. They all have the same dimensions and they are square-shaped. These units or modules can be sued to form all sorts of shapes and designs. You can play with them just like you did with the blocks when you were a kid.

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.
