Designer Angelica Henry selected this unique open back bookcase of floating shelves to give the appearance of a modern sculpture, while serving as a functional piece to house her client's smaller collectibles. It also acts as a unexpected and lovely room divider for the formal dining area.
This pink kitchenette makes the most of limited studio apartment space. The main focal point is a reproduction of an antique sink, and a stainless steel shelf and counter houses a small refrigerator, toaster and microwave oven. Lighting is provided by two retro-style pendant lights.
This lively home office features contemporary design paired with funky patterns and bold colors. A metal bookshelf provides storage space for design books, and retro photographs and decor. An accent wall with gold and white geometric wallpaper adds a finishing touch.
For a quick update to an existing basic wood island from Ikea, DIY blogger Dena Stormer simply painted the base and legs of her island white to match the rest of her kitchen. Then she added a vintage metal file cabinet for her recipes to the shelf below, along with retro kitchen accessories.
Positioned between the living and dining room, this striking wood piece functions as a room divider while offering the usefulness of a bookcase. Its geometric design has a midcentury modern feel to it, echoed in the retro olive walls.
