What at first appears to be just a pile of wood is, at a closer inspection, a creative cabinet cleverly hidden under a wooden shell. The Facecord Cabinet is part of Cleveland-based designer Mark Moskovitz‘s portfolio and can be used to store or even hide things in plain sight. The name refers to the measurements for firewood. Composing either a rustic feel or adorning your modern interiors with its functional body, the deceptive piece of furniture will surely spark up a conversation once guests figure out what it truely is. Concealing your belonging in two small upper drawers and two more on the bottom, the firewood cabinet brings nature inside and reminds you to relax and unwind even if you don’t own a fireplace. By being a constant presence in your home, the cabinet will become more and more interesting for your visitors who will wonder why the stack of wood is always the same size and shape. Priced at $5,800, the Facecord Cabinet was first seen at The Future Perfect during ICFF 2011.
The Stacked system was designed by Julien De Smedt for Muuto. Held together using small clips, Stacked comprises modules of varied sizes that are arranged to create many different storage solutions and set-ups. The 835 Infinito modular bookcase was designed by Franco Albini for Cassina. Comprised of vertical elements, containers with doors or flaps and shelves in two depths, Infinito is an expression of possibilities that are designed to bring order to a space. Randomito from MDF Italia is a single unit hanging bookcase (available in white, orange, sand and green) that can also be turned upside down. Combining units provides a larger configuration with a striking visual impact.
An antique armoire can bring a sense of timeless elegance to any home, but not everyone can find a proper use for one — not to mention sufficient space too! In the old days they were used to store clothing and linens back when bedrooms didn’t have closets, and today some people use them to hold their televisions — but that trend perhaps isn’t as big of a deal as it once was now that TV screens are so flat and compact. You just need to have a look around at all your stuff and see what needs a storage area of its own! Here are some great ideas that might pique your interest.
