If you were on the lookout for some playful storage units for your children’s room, here is an idea. Created by OOO My Design and discovered on Furnishh!, Pin Press in an unusual method to keep your kids occupied. The rods that come with the product slide in and out, which makes storing books and toys fun. According to the designers’ description, “Pin Pres is a kid’s room shelf that makes the act of sorting up the room a playful experience where the shelf adopts its form to the toys, books and other things that are being stored. It is the only shelf that will make your kid actually want to clean up and declutter the room!” While I do not necessarily agree with the last part (because we published quite a few storage ideas that make children want to clean up), I like the creativity invested in this design, its crazy appearance, as well as the energy it inspires. Find it practical?
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. Enjoy browsing the images below while taking in a slew of helpful styling tips from top brands and design bloggers.
Speaking of “less is more” design, if your shelf offers little display space, consider opting for one or two standout items to showcase rather than a slew of small finds. In the next image, we see the Magical Thinking Peaks Shelf, crafted from glass and aluminum. Then again, there’s something charming about a curiously cluttered look, especially if items are thoughtfully curated. The Magical Thinking Pyramid Shelf below holds treasures and curiosities. When your shelves make a sculptural statement, don’t overwhelm and block them with clutter. After all, when the design is as fabulous as the Bamboo Step Wall Shelf in the next featured image, you certainly don’t want to cover up the bold form of your shelving.
