The Secret Compartment Shelf Is The True Meaning Of ‘Hiding In Plain Sight’

Here’s a piece of furniture that defines the meaning of ‘hiding in plain sight’. What everyone sees is a regular, well-crafted piece of wall shelf that’s good for up to 20 pounds (or around 9.1 kilograms) of objects, but in reality, it is more than meets the eyes. What looks like a beautiful, carved bottom is actually a secret compartment that provides a safe haven for a bunch of small items like passport(s), cash, keys, or even a small conceal firearm if you so choose to.

Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Shelf Proves That Huge Spoiler Has Its Use In Homes Too

Unless you hit the track often or go hundreds of miles on daily basis (or both), a huge-ass rear spoiler will be nothing but part of the macho, go-fast look for your car. But in the case of a GT wing, it can very well serve as a table if you bear to seat on your carbon fiber trunk, or you could just stick it to the wall and use it as a regular shelf, like what Porsche has proposed with the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Rear Spoiler Shelf. But look at the shiny surface. Do you bear to put anything on it? Probably not. Then again, I might because I won’t want my $4,230 go to waste. After all, it won’t be doing any downforce duty in static mode, much less stuck to the wall, right? Continue reading Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Shelf Proves That Huge Spoiler Has Its Use In Homes Too

Making Your Own Table is a Snap with These Artistic Snap Furniture Legs

Many years ago, I came up with a furniture idea to suit a particular space I had and it consisted of cinder blocks and table tops I acquired from Ikea. It looked cool, but it was never secured as the table top only rest on the cinder blocks and that’s not mention cinder blocks height are not exactly the same across the board, resulting in some unevenness. If only back then there was Snap, I wouldn’t have to do what I did. So what exactly is snap? In simplest way to put it, Snap are furniture legs that allow you to turn any flat piece of material into a table or shelf that fits your space. Have a narrow space, but need a table? Cut or source for a triangular piece with the dimension required, snap some Snap on and voila! a table that fits your space.

Wall Ride: A Shelving Made With Skateboarders In Mind

Shelving that doubles as a bicycle stand or holder aren’t new, but a shelving made for skateboard? Well, that’s news to us and probably news to many others too. The Wall Ride is one such shelving designed with skateboarders in mind. Designed by Zanocchi & Starke, this wall-mounted, skateboarder-centric shelf may look like an ordinary steel shelf, but upon closer observation, you will find there is a thoughtful slot on the top shelf. That slot there is where you will rest your skateboard with the belly of the deck and wheels facing outwards. In this way, the dirty wheels will not mess up your prestige walls and at the same time, you get to show off any awesome graphics on the underside of the skateboard deck. But that’s not all.
