I have a client with a fireplace that is not centered in the room and we are looking for a minimalistic rustic unit
to fill the void. She has great accessories and artifacts so it just needs to be simple and clean. Here are a few that I have found.
I think this one from Dovetail is minimal but interesting and I am pleased that it does not have wheels.
This one from Restoration Hardware has a great look but I am just not a big fan of wheels. I think the look will become dated and who wants any piece of furniture that rolls around the room? Is it just me? I hate sofas and chairs with wheels as well. The good news is these are small at least.
This one is from CFC/Noir. I think it has an interesting architectural quality to it.
I think I might prefer the metal/wood version here. What do you think?
Here is another Noir piece. This has a nice look as well again no wheels a plus in my book.
This Isabella bookcase from Gaby Furniture has an interesting little detail in the back but wheels again.
I think this one from RH is my favorite if size were no consideration.

The boys from Bobo are the ones who started it all and designed the original Restoration Hardware versions. The three below are a little less predictable.
And as for styling…these look pretty fabulous don’t they?
I think Victoria Hagan’s fabulous combination of items would look just as at home on and industrial unit don’t you think?
I would love to hear which is your favorite, and why? Would you go for the less expensive since it might become dated? Do you find that sometimes when you try to save money you end up spending money ? In my opinion if you stay away from the wheels it won’t become dated so quickly.
