Modular book shelf by CB2.

The powder-coated steel frame of this bookshelf could stand up against oversized hardbacks, magazine backissues, record collections, or any number of combinations of knicks, knacks, bits and bobs, and for those without the floor space it can also be wall-mounted.

Orange cube wall storage unit.

This piece is a refreshingly unfussy cabinet design that comes in reclaimed Douglas Fir, maple, walnut, or white oak. Read more about The Cube here.

Red shelving units.

The Waveform's generous 13 inch depth will support the larger hardbacks, while its 22 inch length lends itself to a mix-and-match modularity that will make a neat visual statement. Read more about the Waveform here.

Multi-colored modular storage.

We’ve never met a hot-dog vendor we didn’t like, and neither, apparently, has French designer Mathieu Lehanneur: The classic quilted street-food cart provided inspiration for his Delicious storage units. Click here for more information on the Delicious storage units.

Yellow Knitted Basket by Ferm Living

Huggable sweater-inspired baskets add a hygge twist on storage containers. Keep on theme and use them for storing yarn and knitting needles. Read more about this knitted basket here.

Magazine rack by Maria Bernsten.

This hanging rack meets all the requirements of the loft-owning glitterati: brushed anodized aluminum with a flowing, organic shape. Magazines must be folded to fit, but this Gehryesque flourish could just as well stand alone on your wall. Read more about the Wallpaper Magazine Rack here.

Wooden toy chest/chaise by Lisa Albin.

The Toy/Chaise from Brooklyn-based designer Lisa Albin is a durable dresser and storage unit that doubles as a comfy space for your kid to sit and lounge. The birch plywood box has a built-in backrest so the little one can take a rest after picking up her toys. Read more about the Toy/Chaise here.

Wooden block storage units

These blocky units lock together with the help of five holes per side––allowing them to take the shape of a miniature library, a bench, or an asymmetrical shelving unit. Read more about this clutter buster here.
