getting your collection of books organized and still not look way too geeky like Stephen Hawkin’s library can be quite a challenge. instead of messing with uninspiring bulky shelving, why not do it in a more stylish way like using the Umbra L Conceal Shelf? granted that there’s nothing magical in this minimalist shelf but we actually adore the floating effect that it gives to the books sitting on it. the L Conceal consists of an angled bent wood shelf with two hidden metal brackets and it can be mounted in a variety of positions, adding a stylish flair to your otherwise mundane wall. so you can either go for the standard shelving and make your room looks like an Ikea showroom or you could add some contemporary artistry on your ordinary wall.

do you adore your fish as much as you adore yourself? if the answer is yes, then here’s a perfect gift for your fishy friend: the Umbra FishHotel Aquarium. we don’t know any fish language, so we are not sure if he will be as thrilled about his new apartment but we are darn sure that his ‘apartment’ will look great among your contemporary interior decor. the FishHotel Aquarium consists of a removable glass square tank with a white ABS plastic outer shell that makes it look like an apartment. you know, the distinguishing windows of any modern day apartment? yeah, i think you get the idea. we prefer not to call it fishbowl because it is not even remotely round. the FishHotel is designed to be stackable, so you can create a ‘real’ hotel effect.

we love art and we also love functional things. let’s be honest, who doesn’t? there is also one thing that we are fond of and that is to stow away things that are not in use, and only to deploy them when required. the Umbra Sticks Multi Hook does exactly all of the above: it has the artistic component presented in what looks like some randomly placed sticks, it functions to organize your coats, and when you don’t need them (the hooks), just flip them up and it functions as an art piece on your wall. it is essentially, an abstract sculpture and functional coat hooks combined, while not looking too overly designed. what’s not to love? oh, in case you are wondering… the Sticks Multi Hook has five flip-down hooks. the Umbra Sticks Multi Hook comes in black or white, and can be yours for a modest price of $20 a pop.
