From a Wolf stool concept to shelves that look like abstract art of faces gazing at you – these innovative storage and display solutions are the additions your home needs!

1. The Nook Desk

The Nook desk right from its appearance and thereafter has a story of material molding, matte finish, and a simple idea that’s still more than an ordinary desk. The Nook desk surface, and nifty selves at the edges, hold key to the table’s idea of maximizing productivity with minimalistic use of material.

Why is it noteworthy?

New desks surfacing on our computer screens day in and day out are generally drenched heavily in the wave of maximizing gadgetry on the tabletop courtesy of cable organizers, built-in wireless chargers et al. Atkay keeps it simple and undistracting. His idea of a desk will therefore not revibrate with most hybrid/work-from-home taskforce. However, if you’re someone like me who loves a desk clear of clutter and only wants a book or two in close proximity; this is where the search can end.

What we like

  • Nook desk’s personalized design aesthetics shall help you have most of your reading/writing material well within your reach
  • The personalized design is achieved by separating multiple layers of plywood at the edges of the table, creating storage layers on the bottom of the tabletop

What we dislike

2. The Boomerang Bed

The Boomerang bed attempts to be more than just a bed. Teixeira transformed a simple bed into a little living area of its own with the help of an integrated table.

Why is it noteworthy?

The integrated table can be considered the star of this furniture piece. Just like its name, this handy table “comes and goes”. By simply shifting the table or changing its placement, the adjustable table can adopt various roles and perform multiple functions. You can slide the table from one end of the bed to the other. If you position it at the edge of the table, it can function as a regular desk for you to place your laptop on and work from home.

What we like

  • The headboard is upholstered, so it’s pretty cozy to rest against while eating your meals or working on your laptop
  • Works well for smaller and compact homes

What we dislike

3. The PLOGA Rack


Functioning as a coat rack, the PLOGA rack is a great option for your entryway, if you’re facing the woe of space constraints. What makes the wall-mounted coat rack quite intriguing is the fact that it features vertical hooks!

Why is it noteworthy?

The hooks are adjustable and placed vertically on the rack. You can slide them from left to right, creating a flexible form that can be changed whenever. This provides more space to store your items, ensuring that they aren’t layered on top of one another.

What we like

  • Can be placed in any room of your home
  • Can be used to store a variety of items

What we dislike

4. The Hanging Desk Organizer Set


Many productivity gurus advocate having a proper place on your desk, even for more “transient” objects that come and go. Some have a tray, a literal inbox, or even a basket, but those often take up precious space that could be used for more permanent things. They’re also a “one size fits all” kind of thing, so you can’t really use them for anything else or even arrange their parts unless you opted for a modular bin. The Hanging Desk Organizer Set solves all those problems by hanging over the edge of your desk and giving you the freedom to rearrange it to suit your needs.

Why is it noteworthy?

As with many seemingly magical modular systems, the secret to the rack’s trick is magnets, very strong magnets. The rack itself is made from sturdy steel and doesn’t actually have any distinct markings on its own. It looks like a square root or radical symbol, where its short flap sticks to the edge of your desk without screws or magnets. The V-shaped space is where you can place things like magazines, letters, files and folders, and more.

What we like

  • You can even hang your book over the highest edge as a makeshift bookmark in case you need to quickly pause what you were reading

What we dislike

5. Three-Six Desk


This concept desk was specially designed for someone’s birthday and is both functional and also eye-catching. The body itself is your usual walnut desk but what makes it different is the orange metal inlay surrounding it. It’s not just there for aesthetic purposes although the orange metal surrounding the wood does make a striking design. But the purpose of this inlay is to let you place stuff around your desk without them actually taking up space on your desk.

Why is it noteworthy?

The front inlay is actually part of the drawers and is used to open them. The sides are angular so you could put office accessories like scissors, staplers, pens, etc. You can also place your mobile phone, tablet, and other media devices so that you can reach them easily but they won’t be on the desk exactly. The back inlay is wider than the sides so you can put bigger items there like books, plants, pen holders, and other decorative things.

What we like

  • The inlays can also be used to add additional storage accessories in case you need it

What we dislike

6. Spectator


Named ‘Spectator’, this intriguing bookshelf definitely looks as if it’s staring right back at you! It seems to be made of interlocking jigsaw puzzle pieces, and each piece looks like a distorted human face!

Why is it noteworthy?

The Spectator Series of shelves is as much a psychological art piece as it is a piece of furniture. In its small way, it demonstrates the wonder of our brains that try to fill in the gaps to complete forms and ideas, like how it is able to see faces in shapes that are so far removed from human heads. With so many faces hiding in plain sight, the roles of observer and observed are also reversed, at least in our mind’s eye again.

What we like

  • The shelf adheres to minimalist design principles despite the odd shapes of its pieces

What we dislike

  • Not everybody would like the aesthetics of this piece

7. The Plot Twist Bookshelf

PLOT TWIST Bookshelves
PLOT TWIST Bookshelf Details

Prolific German furniture designer Deniz Aktay has recently introduced the Plot Twist Bookshelf. It’s a piece of furniture that features four separate twisted wooden elements. They are connected to each other, shaping and creating a stable form.

Why is it noteworthy?

The bookshelf’s design allows it to be accessed from every side. As with most of Deniz Aktay’s product designs, this bookshelf is oddly satisfying. The curves are present as with the designer’s other projects. In addition, most of Aktay’s works have undergone some bending or twisting, as with the Wavelet, the Tie Stool, and The Pet Table.

What we like

  • The shelves can accommodate similarly sized books for a clutter-free look
  • The bookshelf is stable and stands on its own

What we dislike

8. Wolf


Are you the kind of person who would look at clouds and try to see what shapes or creatures you can see there? If yes then you’re probably a pretty creative person who can see all sorts of things in different figures and structures even without hearing the name of the product concept. So even though there’s no description or explanation, you probably understand why this new product concept for a stool is called Wolf.

Why is it noteworthy?

The German-based designer is making a name for himself with his unique takes on simple furniture like bookshelves, lamps, and chairs. This new concept for a stool is called Wolf and if you let your imagination run a little wild, you’ll be able to see a wolf in the shape of this minimalist piece of furniture. In fact, the shape of the stool looks like a logo for a new video game or a brand that gives off a scary, wolf vibe.

What we like

  • The triangular middle part can actually be turned into a small storage area

What we dislike

  • Doesn’t seem like a very cozy seating space

9. Wallganize


Organizers and containers that stick to walls aren’t exactly new, but Wallganize adds a touch of magic to them. It isn’t simply a collection of boxes, clips, and rings that you stick on a wall. It is, instead, a system that offers both a platform and a set of modules that firmly attach to those platforms using strong magnets, letting you mix and match as you need and please.

Why is it noteworthy?

Wallganize has three platforms or bases that you “stick” your containers on. The BlankStatic is your most basic, rectangular sheet of magnet where you can attach boxes or whatnot willy-nilly. There’s also an “Attachnote” platform, which is practically a magnetic notebook organizer for those times when you can’t take your wall with you.

What we like

  • You can create your own pattern of hexagons to liven up your wall while still helping you keep your life uncluttered
  • You can simply rearrange the boxes or even relocate the platforms to another part of the wall

10. June

June Storage and Display Tray Design
June Storage and Display Trays Colors

June is a new system or storage and display trays that may be helpful to those who want to Marie Kondo their stuff. No, this won’t really carry all your things, but it looks like a fun and stylish way to keep things clean and tidy. Of course, having a clean and clutter-free desk is necessary, especially if you want to get work done quickly and smartly.

Why is it noteworthy?

June is designed as a versatile system of storage and display trays. This desk accessory is very functional and practical for anyone with a work desk. This modern organizing system is based on the idea that storing things vertically can be more efficient. Such vertical solutions save up desk or counter space.

What we like

  • You can use it in your office, bedroom, dining room, or kitchen
