This morning I was browsing around the Apartment Therapy blog looking for inspiration and I was blown away when I saw the Story Teller shelves by Isabel Quiroga. I was thoroughly intrigued and proceeded to browse the internet for more of her designs and found the Foldable table, which is equally novel. Isabel Quiroga has a unique ability to transform ordinary household necessities into exceptional decor center-pieces. She is truly an inspiration.
The application of desks as shelves is a wonderful way to reuse old furniture in an exceptional way. I love how functional the design is, you could use the space for storage, work, or decoration. In addition, they look fabulous!
Isabel Quiroga also designed the Foldable table. It has legs which fold into the table and a silk-screen print that appears as a table cloth. Also, Isabel Quiroga inventively included a hole in the surface of the table so that it can be hung from a wall and double as a painting. Although these are the best snag-able pictures I could find, thanks to Yanko Design, they do not do the art aspect of the table justice. To see ones that do, visit the Isabel Quiroga website.
