A beautiful piece of furniture can complete a room. It can be the final piece that makes a space come full circle, building a comfortable and cohesive haven, rather than a random area. Furniture pieces make or break a home, they add on to the essence or soul of a home, hence one needs to be extremely picky while choosing a furniture design. The design should be a reflection of you, and what you want your home to be. When you place a piece of furniture in a room, it should instantly integrate with the space, creating a wholesome and organic environment. And one such furniture design is the Japanese-inspired Altitude Shelf.
Designer: Evan Clabots for Cozey
Designed by Evan Clabots for the affordable furniture brand Cozey, the Altitude Shef is a new line of shelving inspired by the clean lines and minimal form of traditional Japanese woodworking. Although inspired by Japanese furniture, we can see bits of traditional Danish furniture in the piece as well. The shelving design is marked by clean minimal lines and no back panels which ensures that the design is open, airy, and free-flowing.
As simple as the Altitude shelf looks, it is also equally simple to install. The shelf requires the includes nails and an Allen wrench to assemble it, after which the installer needs to tape the included placement poster to create the perfect placement and mark the nail holes. A nail spacer is utilized to ensure that the ideal amount of nail is not screwed, to provide the shelf with a sturdy frame.
The Altitude shelf features a simple and subtle design that can stand by itself as a single unit, or as multiple units to form a modular and spacious configuration that can hold multiple items. An Altitude shelf can hold up to 90 pounds and you can select between three finishes – Walnut, Oak, and Black Wood. What sets the shelf apart even more is that prices start at $165 for a set of one and $990 for a set of six – making it a pretty economical piece as well for your living space.
