The as4 modular furniture line is one of the coolest shelving systems I’ve seen. Consisting of multiple components, the system uses wall-mounted standards as the foundation from which all pieces are hung. This allows media shelving, cabinets, and other items to “float” off the floor. The Broklyn, N.Y.-based company fabricates all standards from solid cold-rolled steel with holes spaced 2 inches apart for incremental adjustments. The stuff is really high quality and—unlike other shelving systems—is made from solid hardwoods such as white oak, walnut, and maple. Choose your components and start designing. www.atlaseast.com.
