Think Outside The Box with Statement Contemporary Storage

Think Outside The Box with Statement Contemporary Storage

There’s an old adage that always seems to circulate at this time of year. And whether it was a housewife or Zen Japanese philosopher who coined it first, there’s no denying the truth of the matter. A tidy house is a tidy mind and in 2019, we’re leaving the clutter behind.

Before you start eye-rolling at our shiny New Years optimism, we’d ask you to hear us out for just a moment. While one of our pet peeves will always be excess clutter, contemporary storage is about more than just hiding things away. Done right, it can add architectural intrigue and clarity to spaces that are confused or poorly designed. Let us show you how…

Use Modern Bookcases as Room Dividers

For many interior designers, a modern bookcase or shelving system presents the opportunity to introduce lines into open space. In doing so, you partition the room, gifting privacy while doubling the number of available ambients in which to relax. Some of our favourite examples in recent years include B&B Italia’s Jack and Cappellini’s Cloud Bookcase. The former adds a Crittal-style window effect to modern lounges while the latter a whimsical sense of escapism.

Make A Design Statement With A Modern Sideboard

Contemporary sideboards are the design equivalent of a stunning soundtrack. While usually regulated to a supporting role, the right one can easily become a focal point in any stylish dining room. If it’s glamour you’re after, then you’ll want to pay attention to Cattelan Italia’s stylish ceramic sideboards. For the best in glass it’s Fiam, while beautiful wood sideboards will always take pride of place at Porada. Whichever you choose, each packs a serious style punch, ensuring no one puts these sideboards in the corner.

Make A Perfect First Impression

They say you never get a second chance at a first impression. With these striking hallway accessories, you won’t need one. Each of these functional designs does a lot with a little, maximising space while preventing clutter from spreading throughout the house. So no matter how big your hallway, you can afford to introduce a little style this season.

P.S. We’re also delighted to announce that we will shortly be introducing Schonbuch to our range of contemporary hallway furniture. For a sneak peek of what’s to come, follow the link here.

Discover Off The Wall Style

If you missed out on David Hockney’s record-breaking auction, fear not, there’s another way to deck your walls this season. Modular wall units are one of our favourite methods for transforming empty walls into stunning works of art. They offer an opportunity to get creative with the design while showcasing all of your most beloved possessions. Ranging in size and price from Cassina‘s clever thermoplastic shelves through to Laurameroni’s glamorous 40/40 system, they’re a practical luxury that adds interest to any space.
