Are you on the lookout for an eye-catching shelving unit? Perhaps one with a bohemian-industrial feel, perfect for a vintage or a modern interior with a personality? For today, we would like to present the urban shelf, a fresh design meant to add a twist to your home decor. Discovered on Chiasso, this cool and creative project resembles a three-floor fire escape and goes great against a colorful or neutral background. The shelf was made entirely of sturdy epoxy-coated steel and weighs 6lbs. (about 2.72 kilos). This is why, when it comes to storing things on it, you can let your imagination run wild. The urban shelf can hold a variety of practical or decorative objects, from books and magazines to plants, supplies and artwork. Its overall size is 12? x 3.75? x 25.5”, its price tag is $98 and you should also know it ships in two pieces, for easy assembly.
And one of my all-time favorite shelf styling tricks is to display plants on the top layer of shelving, which will draw the eye upward, as well as create height and drama. Below we see shelf-top plants in a tour of my retro-modern home office. Last but not least, we shine the spotlight on the challenging task of styling kids’ room shelving, drawing inspiration from the product photography of The Land of Nod. The Zero Gravity Wall Shelf below illustrates a perfect balance of practicality and design flair, mixing carefully placed toys with books in eye-catching colors.
Some shelves are purely functional, while others leave a little bit of room for decorative flair! In fact, the decorative shelves featured in today’s post showcase a range of styling possibilities, from the minimalist to the overflowing.
