Storage furniture can often get in the way, especially in small rooms, so anything that utilises the wall space has to be a good idea? Being stylish at the same time is a lot to ask but there are a few original and quirky designs that might just catch your eye?
Minimalist Wooden Book Shelf – OK, you’ll not fit a lot of books on it but how many books do you need to hand at any one time? You can store the remainder of your book collection somewhere more convenient. The design is also suitable for storing CD’s and DVD’s, or you could just use it as a display shelf? The 3 shelves can each hold around 3-4 books. It’s made from solid oak with a wax finish and is easy to fit. Dimensions: W15 x H42cm x D15cm. £60 via notonthehighstreet.com
