There is no doubt that modern furniture styles have come a long ways towards being more comfortable and convenient. A prime example of this is how the ottoman of today serves several purposes, versus only offering a resting spot for feet and legs. The once heavy bases of vintage ottomans have been replaced with hollowed centers that turn the normal ottoman into a storage ottoman. A Little More than a Storage Bench.
Modular bookcases come in sets that can be stacked, stretched out or even used individually. You can use them to create a traditional looking bookshelf or you can mount them to the wall in creative ways. These bookcases also come in a variety of sizes and designs, so you can use them just about anywhere. Barrister bookcases have glass doors protecting each shelf. Each door has its own hinge, so you can easily slide the glass out of the way when needed. These bookcases are generally fairly large, and they are perfect for protecting your favorite books, knickknacks, collectibles and other important memorabilia.
When you install any type of corner shelves or unit, you not only salvage valuable untapped space, you often make the whole room feel more spacious and airy. When you break the "squareness" of the room, it adds interest and charm to your decor. Not only that, but in some cases, using this area in this way can allow a room to have more than one function. For instance, a corner shelf unit for childrens toys can separate that part of your living room off for the kids while allowing you to reclaim the rest of it for toy-free relaxation.
Storage tables with just one big compartment accessible by lifting the top can also make it really easy to do some last minute clean up of a room when you are getting unexpected company. You can just toss in the odds and ends from around the room and deal with them later when you have more time. One option like this is the Tropical Abaca Small Astor Table by Jeffan, which is made with a solid mahogany base and a twisted abacca fiber upper.
