    Kinda Trippy

    At first glance, West Elm’s Boxes + Planes Bookshelf (tall pictured above) made my eyes go a little crossed. But when you see the styled-out short version looks really fantastic. The tall shelf is an especially great deal at $499. The short shelf is $399.

    Ikea 2015 Catalog Highlights

    I got my 2015 Ikea catalog in the mail yesterday and was happy to see some eye-catching new styles. I’m a huge fan of the Busunge extendable twin bed frame above ($189 and not available online or in stores yet). The catalog features it in blue, but it looks like it will come in pink as well.

    I’m also eagerly awaiting the PS 2014 storage table ($69 and not available in my local stores yet).

    I think this Nordli 12 drawer chest ($499 and not on the site yet) is ripe for hacking. According to the catalog, Nordli is also modular and can be built out high or wide. I could see it with some mid century legs, but I’m unclear as to whether it would be possible to ad them.

    Under the Bed Storage

    I’ve seen vintage luggage used as storage in the past, but for some reason it hadn’t occurred to me how well it would work under a bed without a bed skirt. You can just see a lovely vintage case peeking out on the left side above. It’s just a much crisper look than the fabric under-bed storage options I’ve been using for shoes and off season clothing. Below image via.

    I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled at garage and estate sales, but you can find tons of vintage luggage over at Etsy.

    I admit it. I’m not immune to the global sloth obsession. That’s probably why I am now obsessed with this adorable mini sloth sculpture set. I mean, who doesn’t love a sloth-squirrel friendship? $38 at Mount Royal Mint.

    Wicker, Man

    Well, technically this chair is teak and rattan, but you know what I mean. I love the deco design. The price, not so much. Handwoven Boline Chair, $998 at Anthropologie.
