When it comes to furniture, it’s wise to choose pieces that are both functional and stylish. When you’re putting it up on a wall, go for something that doubles as art.
In addition to useful function, your choice in furniture conveys your sense of style and overall personality. Contemporary furniture design ranges from clean and minimalist to vibrant, creative, and exciting.
Let’s take shelves as an example. You don’t have to stick to the typical rectangular shelves anymore. There are lots of trendy designs available nowadays.
Hexagonal shelves have become popular because of their interesting shape. They’re also known as honeycomb shelves because, well, they look like a bee’s honeycomb.
Once you mount them on a wall, they really look appealing. They can look fun and playful but classy at the same time.
These DIY honeycomb shelves aren’t very easy to make. But the finished product is definitely worth all the time and effort.
