Elements Of Design: Contemporary Shelving

By | April 25, 2013

In the dining area of this contemporary kitchen built by Greenbelt Homes in Austin, TX, the wine glasses are stored in a wall nook that places them within easy reach – and looks good doing it. A deceptively simple change to the traditional shelf layout results in an exciting, updated look that adds to the modernist appeal of this kitchen design.

Instead of running the shelves across the full width of the storage niche, they’re cut off before reaching the opposite wall, in alternate rows, producing a neat effect.
