SheLLf by Ka-Lai Chan

Normally shelves have the same size from one edge to the other, I mean they are just as wide all over the place. But this interesting shelf that is used for storing different things, not only books, is a bit changed. It appears to be three dimensional, that is you can see it “growing ” from the wall, like a living organism that develops on the wall of your house. That effect is due to the different width of the shelf – it is more narrow on the edge and wider in the middle. It is called SheLLf and it was designed by the young designer Ka-Lai Chan. Even though she has Asian origins, she lives now in Netherlands where her amazing talent was discovered and encouraged.

The SheLLf is made of natural coloured wood that is painted in black on the edge and also on the outer side. This thing creates and amazing visual effect due to the contrast between the light colour of the wood and the shiny black outside. You can use it for storing different things and it also makes a wonderful display for certain pieces of decoration that you might want to use in your home. This item is available now in three different sizes, depending on the wish of the customer and also on the size of the wall it is supposed to be placed on. It fits perfectly a white or beige wall and can be used in decorating any room, no matter what style you use for that – modern or traditional.
