We recently received a delightful furniture set from designer Fabio Vinella, meant to enrich the living space of the owner by constantly reminding him/her of the pleasures of traveling: “A travel give you the possibility to breath a unique atmosphere. You know that you will live a new emotion just taking your suitcase in your cabinet. The designer Fabio Vinella knows this emotion well, so he decided to design Travel Drawers: a modular combinations of wooden drawers inspired by the old suitcase. Elegant and attractive details give personality to each drawer: leather handle, studs and a warm red coloration inside of the drawers“. The Travel Drawers come in two versions ( tobacco color or warm gray) and three sizes. They can be placed one above the other or spread randomly around the house. Either way, they present an appealing look, enhancing the overall design of the interiors they are placed in. Find them holiday-inspiring?
Hobbyists often have lots of stuff that require lots of storage room that’s easy to access and keep tidy. Whether it’s sewing, crafting, gardening, or something else — organization is key, and an armoire can really be the perfect solution for it. You might be surprised to find how versatile armoires can be to use in place of other pieces of furniture. Check out this desk from Apartment Therapy!

And when baby is all grown up, you’ll have the opportunity to find another use for your armoire. An old armoire works just as well as a regular bookcase — if not better for the unique look you get.

You can never have enough storage in the kitchen. If you lack cabinet space but have just enough room along an area of a wall, an armoire can serve as a wonderful pantry. Check out this great example from Decoholic. Alternatively, you could use the same idea as above, but for coffee instead.
