We have scoured the net, to source homeware items that we think are a must have for your home. We have carefully selected these products by focusing on the three sectors we feel are important: quality, design and functionality.
For our Homeware Picks No.2 we have focused on well designed, handmade wooden shelves by some great artisan designers.
1. Olivier Dolle Tree Branch Library - This rather big tree branch design bookshelf is ideal if you have a large wall to fill. It's the work of Paris based artisan designer Olivier Dolle. The shelf is a hollow structure of multilayer birch veneer oak wood. There's two colours available, Colourless Oak or American Walnut. www.olivier-dolle.com
2. Chuck - Natascha Harra-Frischkorn - The Chuck flexible shelving unit is by Natascha Harra-Frischkorn. It's a rather artistic piece of furniture that is also functional. Made out of plywood and brushed stainless steel means that it's flexible and stable. At first glance it's just a board on a wall, until you start playing around with the flexible 4 mm thick boards to change it's shape and make room for those favourite pieces. www.cargocollective.com
