Non-Clunky Storage

storage-ideas-brocadeWhen storage units grow over five-feet tall–that tends to spell c-l-u-n-k-y. But minimize the amount of heavy wood, doors and drawers, and the mahogany monster in the room can become sculpture. This piece from Brocade Home ($699) commands attention not because of its towering 65″ stature but its curvaceous silhouette. I love its feminine lines even more because it was spared the girly details. Angular shelves make each compartment a natural bookshelf and a pedestal for your most fabulous objet.

And if that's still too big for your living room, this style is adorable as a console ($599).
