I’m a big fan of the Bouroullec brothers’ designs, and this particular one is especially endearing. The little smooth shelves, called Corniches, create beautiful and multifunctional storage. Here is how designers describe their idea: “The same way that we hang our belongings on a rock jutting from a cliff before diving into the sea, we need small, informal storage in everyday life too.” Shaped as individual, isolated protrusions in space, Corniches adapt to your unique taste and purpose. Use them for your keys beside the front door, as a pedestal for a small collection of objects or as a broad wall display, – the choice is yours. And to aid your creative process the manufacturer, Swiss brand Vitra, created an iPhone app that lets you take a picture of your wall and virtually test the location of your chosen shelves. So cool.  Corniches are available for purchase here.
