Two options for adding color to your space via color-blocked storage units.

Above: The Rack + Table in brass with polyethylene shelves by Belgian artists turned furniture designers Fien Muller and Hannes van Severen of Muller van Severen is $4,700 from L’Arco Baleno. “Their work straddles the line between sculpture and functional homeware,” according to Coolhunting. “Their decision to start making ‘furniture sculptures’ in 2011 arose very spontaneously. It was the outcome of a combination of circumstances, including the fact that the couple was in the midst of a home renovation.”

Above: The Mondrian-inspired Color Block Bookcase from CB2 is $599 and has a black powder-coated iron frame with hand-enameled shelves in gray, powder blue, yellow, and orange-red.
