Shelf Happy :-)

I have been serious about the blogging for a few weeks now and as I have been actively following other sites (might be interpreted as wasting time) I am noticing trends in my likes and dislikes of categories. I have always known I have strong style preferences but I am noticing a distinct bias of furniture functions as well. I am not terribly interested in chair design - and there are lots of posts about them.  But shelving units - oh my! I get unreasonably excited over a well designed self unit. Here is a collection of some of the ones that have caught my eye this week. This first set starts as simple slotted boxes.....

But put them together and combine sets and Oh, My!  I am impressed.

Endless and changeable possibilities for interesting displays are created.

The second set speaks to the non-gamer in me.  I only like spatial relation games like Tetris.....

Example #3 is a wonderful replacement for the ugly kitty tower.  The stairs and hightop kitty perch are just excellent solutions.  

And the last sample is here just to let you know that my storage solution attraction is not limited to right angles!

I have no doubt that my love of storage shelves is related to my love of collecting stuff!

1. Slot Shelves: They have been all over the design blogs but I saw them first at SwissMiss
2. Tetris shelves were discovered at Opulent Items.
3. Cat Library was uncovered at Shoebox Dwelling.
4. Round Flexi Shelving was also from Opulent Items.
