The IKEA Expedit bookshelf is one of my favorite items to use in designing a home. I have one in my own office (the green room below) and I love how each cubby can be left open for books or binders or be filled with a drawer or basket to conceal clutter. I spec this item all the time in both small condos or apartments to big million dollar homes- they are sturdy, clean, great design that blends in with traditional or modern decor and is easy to make your own…
You can attached particle board or foam core to the back covered in a wallpaper or paint or perhaps put one up on a console table (be sure to attach it to the wall somehow!)
It makes an excellent see through room divider…
It’s the most perfect storage unit for children’s rooms and nurseries…
This entire wall was crafted from various sizes of Expedit shelves! Amazing!
My set-designer cousin Mark
used stacks of them to dress up Stacy London’s
set last year- and filled them with shoes! LOVE!
The Expedit come sin three finishes and various styles and sizes to suit your needs. I am loving the new “uneven” shelving unit below:
This workstation is genius for creating the maximum amount of storage and workspace in a small area.
They’ve started making Tv units, coffee tables and side tables that match and I think their clean leans are very chic and modern:
