Modern Ideas for Displaying Your Memories and Mementoes
Your home should be a place you love, a place where you’re surrounded by all of your favorite things. But, you have to have someplace to put it all. Take a look at a handful of modern shelves that would be great to house all of your most important things.
Gus*Modern’s Picture Rail is a clever way to display your photos, mementoes, art, or even your collectibles. The aluminum rail lets you swap out what you want to display allowing you to get a new look anytime you want without having to add more holes to your walls.
The Gil Shelf, by Jacob Marks for Skram Furniture, is a system that easily mounts to the wall so you can proudly show off all of your favorite things. Made of a single sheet of folded steel, the simple shelves have added support from military grade wire rope that gives it a contemporary look.
Made in Italy, Pontaccio Shelf from Lago, is just as functional as it is aesthetically pleasing. The lower part of the shelf remains in a fixed position while the upper half can slide in or out based on your preference or display needs.
Designed by Marcel Wanders for Moooi, the Oblique Big is a flat, leaning shelf where you can display tons of souvenirs, photos, or magazines. While only 2.4″ deep, the shelf comes with a lipped edge so all of your things will stay in place.
