The Best Shelves Out There and Award Winners Too
This post is stuffed to the brim with award winning shelving for you to check out as well as some others that are so good they should have won an award! Here they are:
This unit won the Wallpaper Magazine Storage of The Year Award 2008. Designed by Carlo Cloumbo and available from arflex, it is a minimalist design with no fancy frills, its just incredibly functional with its different sized cubby holes for storing different passesions. Placed up against one wall it means that all your storage needs are satisfied in one big block. Fantastic!
Not an award winner but in a league of its own none the less.This is a truly striking piece of furniture that is guaranteed to get visitors talking. The designer says he took his inspiration from old style musical theater. Despite its quirky design and array of extra legs the piece itself is very practical, offering the owner a good amount of storage space at a low level, close to the floor. Plus you can stuff things inside there and no one will be able to see from the outside because of the cabinet doors.
This black box shelf with a chrome fame from smartfurniture.com hasn’t been up for an award either. Although, it is worth noting for the fact that items can be stored not only in the boxes but on top of them as well so your storage space is doubled in an instant. Plus its a really affordable price, which is helpful considering everyone is feeling the pinch with the economy the way that is is right now.
This shelving has been nominated for this years People’s Design Awards. With it’s bold inside and odd layout people with an eye for the quirkier aspects of design are going to fall in love with this one at first sight.
This one is not even in production yet, but is also up for a PDA. Designed by Abhinav Dapake, the shelf makes extra use of the corner spaces in a room which are often left unutilized. Its simple flowing line structure makes it both elegant and astounding at the same time. If this designer wins the award this procuct is sure to be available on the market pretty soon.
