Depending on the size and shape of your dining table, creative surface space can be at a premium. Free up some of the surface space by adding a rolling shelving system to keep larger supplies like gift bags, wide rolls of ribbon and burlap neatly stored and in within arm's reach.
Bundles of wrapping paper rolls can be tricky to transport from space to space. Keep them all nice and tidy inside of a rolling mesh laundry basket. Thanks to their height, you can see the different styles of paper popping out the top, and lockable casters will help make them kid and pet proof.
It's Thanksgiving at 10 a.m. Your whole family is coming for lunch in less than two hours. And what are you doing? Frantically polishing flatware. If this isn't your idea of fun, store your silver and silver-plated flatware in silver flatware storage rolls. The fabric absorbs the gases that tarnish silver and reduces (or even eliminates) the need for polishing. The compact size lets you get more flatware in a smaller space, taking up less room in your pantry or china cabinet. The storage roll pictured here is from Reed & Barton.
Scoot on over to gardening beds and other areas with this ready-to-work yard vehicle.

The 25th Street residence was re-designed with openness and light in mind. The whole floor plan was opened up and unique materials like hot-rolled steel added a contemporary feel. In this space, the living room bleeds organically into the family room.
The hot rolled steel structure in the space is actually a disguised closet that doubles as a magnetic surface for family photos.
Okay, how cool is this? When the theater's screen is rolled up and the curtains are pulled open, the owners can get another glimpse of Seattle's Elliot Bay in the distance. Wood beams and a matching surround further draw the outdoors inside.
Upon entering SOMA Design Studio, clients are greeted by antique Chinese doors and a hot rolled daybed and sofa. This sofa is a part of the reception area, and its cushions are covered in burlap, which is consistent with the makeup of a traditional French mattress.
Is there anything the IKEA Raskog utility cart cannot do? Cassidy Tuttle of Succulents and Sunshine lined the top shelf of the Raskog with window screening then filled it with soil, moss (to mask the soil) and succulents. Small potted succulents fill the other two shelves.
