Piccolo Shelf For Small Spaces, Plants And Photos

Piccolo Shelf from Mochacasa

Piccolo Shelf is designed with small spaces in mind. This little wall shelf can be used to display succulents, trailing plants, photos, vases and other favourite decor objects. It also makes a handy shelf while charging a smartphone.

The wall shelves are handmade in birch ply with rounded edges that enhance the beauty of the wood. The design is deliberately kept simple so as to enhance plants and accessories displayed on it. It is also reversible so you can choose whether to hang with the wall support facing down or upwards.

For the best effect, hang them on the wall in groups of three, five or six.

The shelf is called Piccolo (Italian for tiny – inspired by the designer’s Italian speaking mum) because it is a perfectly formed little shelf for small things.

Marco Frame Shelf For Plant And Book Lovers

Marco Frame Shelf is designed with plant and book lovers in mind. The shelf frames and displays your plants, books and home accessories. It makes a focal point of them, turning them into works of art.

There are numerous ways to use this handmade birch ply shelf. Display a lush fern, a sculptural succulent or colourful geranium. Frame your best book, or a small collection of them. Highlight a sentimental holiday souvenir, exquisite vase or bowl.

It can even be used in place of a bedside table – ideal if space is tight or when looking to create a minimalist interior.

The back can either be left open so the colour of the wall shows through. Or attach a quote or picture to create a background.

Naomi Nutcracker

Meet our newest addition Naomi Nutcracker.

Combining beautiful aesthetics, function and fun in one clever gadget – Naomi isn’t like other nutcrackers.

More often than not, when you try cracking nuts with other gadgets, the nuts smash into pieces and shell shrapnel is sent flying across the room!

Not so with the wonderful, spring Naomi. Your nut is placed in the stainless steel bowl. Then you stretch the spring and as soon as you release the ball, it slams down and cracks open the nut. And at that same moment, the conical spring closes around the nut, confining the shell fragments within the nut cracker.

Simple, stylish, and a joy to use. Which probably explains why Naomi Nutcracker is a Reddot Award Winner.
