Best Quirky Storage Ideas

December 05, 2016

Organised Fun

We may be in deepest winter but it's never too early to start planning for the spring clean.  The best way to get prepared is to get some fun and functional storage solutions that are sure to put you in an organisational mood.

 

ABC Bookcase

ABC Bookcase – Floor-Standing Shelf

The ABC Bookcase from Saporiti is a modular storage system which enables you to spell out your message with floor-standing and wall-hanging shelves in a unique typography inspired design.  Choose a phrase like "TIDY UP" or "CLEAN UP THE MESS" to show that you mean business.

 

Opus Incertum

Opus Incertum Bookshelf

Inspired by the Roman wall-building method of the same name, Opus Incertum from Casamania is a super lightweight, stackable shelf which is great for toys or as a room divider.  Even the Romans would be impressed.

 

Palafitt 

Palafitt - Cabinet

Quirky and poetic in equal measures, the house-shaped Palafitt cabinet from Seletti is sure to raise a smile or two.  This would look wonderful in the hallway or a kid's room, perhaps even in the kitchen.

 

Plus Storage

PLUS 1 Storage

For something a bit more masculine try the Plus Storage units from Lyon Beton.  The units are made in concrete and are available in three different shapes, which can be combined to create great looking compositions to suit every need.

 

Treasure Table

Treasure Table Medium

The Treasure Table from Frederik Roije is designed as a sleek and multi-functional display case to present your precious objects.  We think it works just as well for balls of knitting wool, toys and other detritus of everyday life.  You could even put a string of fairy lights inside and turn it into a charming floor lamp.

 

Airplane Trolley

Bordbar Airplane Trolley - City

Last but not least, we have the Airplane Trolley from Bordbar.  These mobile cabinets are designed and built to the same specifications as standard airplane trolleys but have the additional benefit of customisable exterior graphics and interior inserts, from shelves to drawers and bottle holders.  They work fantastically well in bathrooms and kitchens and are perfect as a funky mobile bar.
