SHELVING

Proper shelving in a home can make all the difference. With spaces being tight in NYC, it's really important to use the vertical space to open up the floor space. Shelving also helps keep spaces organized and are a great way to display some of your most prized possessions.

Shelving can be created using different types of material, they can help display elements in your home, and they can also help create and define a space in your home. Here are some fun ways we have used shelves in different spaces.
