When it comes to small interiors, every inch of walkable floor space counts, which is why more and more people have been taking their storage vertical. Based out of the city of brotherly love, Amuneal is one company that takes wall storage very seriously; their bespoke Collector's Shelving System consists of a fully adjustable, luxurious and vertical framework that can be customized for spaces of any size.
Amuneal’s state-of-the-art system has been installed in museums, retail stores, and private residences around the country. Each unit is made in the USA and built in Philadelphia, PA out of oxidized oak and glass shelves, steel hooks, and a solid brass framework that secures to the wall. Replete with credenzas, industrial strength storage baskets, and elegant space to display collectibles, the modular series can be configured for a variety of needs. The swinging shelves make it especially easy to access stowed items, and LED light bars can also be integrated into each Collector’s Shelving Unit.
This luxury shelving is built to last with beautiful materials that truly stand the test of time. Each unit is customized for the buyer’s interior, and so it will cost a pretty penny. The varied designs range from all sorts of subtle shelving styles, with each unit designed to accentuate collectibles (hence the name). Once the framework is installed, the shelves can be seamlessly exchanged for different finishes, colors, and styles. The company’s meticulous attention to detail, simple use of materials, and customization capabilities all work towards a goal of making smaller spaces more chic and livable.
One of the most interesting features of Amuneal is their modular glass option that is specifically designed for kitchens. These 1/2” thick shelves are a gorgeous way to display dishes, pantry items, or even plants, as demonstrated in this stunning display at the 2016 International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) during New York Design Week.
