Some would say that wonderful shelving design is the cherry on top of an already brilliant design, and many would argue that it is actually a part of the actual brilliant design. The two schools of thoughts may differ but both are right in their own respect. A good shelving design is pretty important because of its functional aspects too. If you’re a collector of any sort, then it would definitely help to have a shelving design that helps showcase your collection. For example, if you’re a book collector than you’d need a shelf designed in a particularly size-savvy as well as elegant way to highlight your prized collection. In this way, shelving also contributes to the aesthetics of the space. A good shelving design needs to be relevant to the context of the interior in order to be truly great. Further we’ll be taking a look at some of the most interesting shelving designs in our library.
- Simplified asymmetry
This shelving unit is pretty simple at first glance, but its organization on the actual wall is the key part of its design. Its straightforward design combined with the asymmetry creates a unique wall element that complements the overall interior aesthetic of the layout. Aside from that, it is a good way to showcase the toy collection that is featured inside.
- Almost minimal
Minimalism is a beloved concept that is the highlight of clean design. The shelving unit below is designed purely for aesthetics, and its clean and simple design helps reinforce elegance in the overall ambiance of the interior. The lighting intervention also helps make this design a penultimate minimalist aficionados dream.
- Upscale console
Media wall shelving is usually relegated to the under-cabinet genre. Very rarely does a designer think out of the box enough to create a design that is great enough to be the crown jewel of the media wall. However, the straight laced design of the media wall shelf in the image below is one of the best ideas in our library.
- The wall feature
If you want shelving to be a feature wall extravaganza than you need to design it in a trendy and glamorous way. The image below showcases a design that is an all out fashion-fest in a sultry, glamorous interior design. From its great asymmetric span to its trendy color scheme, this one is certainly one for great aesthetics.
- Playful and pragmatic
The study room shelf in the image below has been designed to cater to both the functional as well as visual aspects of the interior design. Its overall formation is so playfully created that the color overlay of the accessorizing only adds to it. Aside from that, the careful juxtaposition of the closed and open shelves is truly remarkable.
