Ok it’s not exactly like the picture in the previous post but it’s close enough to make me very happy.

Read & Roll

I just saw this picture over at Plastolux and I’ve now I’m obsessively searching for a Toilet Paper Holder and Magazine Rack just like this! No luck yet….

Love this Bath Life Shelf and Towel Bar at DWR …. and it’s 50% off…which would be nice if it hadn’t been so much to begin with.

Paul Koh Toggle Key Switch

December 8, 2009

I had seen these light switch plates awhile ago but I don’t believe they were actually on sale then. Now Bobby Berk Home is selling them.

However, every light switch near an entry in my house has more than one switch. Hopefully they come out with a multi one soon.

Strut Credenza

August 19, 2009

The Strut Credenza by Crate and Barrel is crafted of shesham wood with a matte walnut stain, an adjustable and removable shelf, a storage drawer and letter-legal file drawer.

MOSS SUND Architects and Fig Forty have created the fantastic CISTA Rainwater Harvesting System. The harvesting system provides 100 gallons of rainwater storage within an 8-foot vertical planted frame. Below right is the concept featured at the 2009 Interior Design Show in Toronto…..sure beats the typical barrel collection method!

Storage Beds

February 10, 2009

I have a thing for beds with built in storage underneath. It looks clean, simple and stops the unavoidable build up of junk under your bed (which I have tons of). This is my current favorite.

I usually try to stear clear of concept designs but I still check them out at yanko design. They just posted one I really liked the functionality of – the ‘Hang On Outlet’ by designer Paulo Oh.

Clamping Strip

July 17, 2008

I just came upon Christian Lessing’s ‘Clamping Strip’. I don’t know if it can be purchased but I loved the idea of using it for the trim around a door to provide hidden storage.

I don’t know anything about this, since the site is written in Japenese, but I know that I like it….

Low table that extends and changes its shape by doubling in size revealing generous storage for magazines, books, CD and DVD. Clean lines, functionality and diverse wood and lacquer finishes combinations between wengé stained oak and white lacquer.


Wall Straps

May 23, 2008

These would be a fun way to hold kids toys and what-not…or a bright storage idea for a entry/mudroom.

These wall straps can be used to hold things right against the wall.The further apart you place the two end screws, the more tension on the strap and the tighter the hold.

Folding Colander

May 23, 2008

My kitchen storage is a mess, so anything that may simplify it catches my interest.

12 polypropylene living hinges are incorporated in the design of the Folding Colander so that, when you put it away, it can be folded completely flat for easy storage.

Produce Design

I just love this Suture Bench with storage by Produce Design…. with oxidized ash and carbon steel handles and sutures. 

They also make a really cool pot and pan rack.

A reclaimed beam is milled for a magnetic knife holder and fins that hang pots below. Trays in the top accommodate the knife magnet, lid storage, and spice storage and display.
