It’s everybody’s little secret behind immaculate décor — great storage! Unfortunately, stashing away your china, board games, or extra blankets in arbitrary locations around the home tend to feel more like an (un)organized crime.
Organization is a hot topic these days, especially as we approach warmer days filled with travel, hours spent at the shore or pool, and sandals galore. People want to maintain the functionality of storage while at the same time creating a visually appealing focal point. The Gabby designers innovate our storage furniture to have both maximum storage and decorative capabilities. Below, we’ll highlight some of our favorite pieces and describe how to integrate them into your storage plan.
People say the kitchen is the heart and soul of the home, and the dining room is simply an extension of it. Most likely the largest piece of furniture in your dining room, your china cabinet, heavily influences the overall ambiance of the space. Will your hutch be filled with china or used to store more everyday items? If you’re the type to rarely use your best china, you can free up some space in the hutch for commonly used items.
Our Grace Farmhouse China Cabinet will take all the hesitation away from displaying your favorite items in the dining room. When arranged carefully, sometimes simple items can look even better than fancy china. Our large, French-farmhouse style china cabinet features large glass doors with demure metal overlays. With the drawers underneath, you can store seasonal items, cloth napkins, and additional serving pieces.
Even though living rooms are heavily occupied areas of the home, they don’t usually feature many extra closets or storage areas. When you’re entertaining family and friends, it’s nice to have extra board games, DVDs, and cozy blankets on hand. However, it’s not always easy to find the appropriate places to store these items.
Keep your living room clutter free with our Phyllis Chest. Not only do its two drawers deliver great organizational potential, but it also adds a charming touch of Hollywood glamour to your space. Contemporary and vintage design meet with resin over white seagrass and wood and vintage-style nailhead trim. At a height of only 31.5 inches, you can freely style the top with elegant decorative accessories.
Today’s living rooms must blend function and beauty, and it’s not always an easy feat. Before you know it, the space can become overwhelming and overcrowded. We love the idea of multi-purpose furniture for the home — coffee tables with shelves underneath, tufted ottomans with hidden storage, and large-lidded, wicker baskets.
Who knew an ottoman could have so many purposes? In transitional interiors, ottomans can be used for storage, extra seating, and as a design element to tie the room together. This is a seriously handy piece of furniture that can also make a huge statement. Our Lynne Ottoman is the perfect two-in-one piece. Its open design yields light and space or provides an opportunity for storage. The ottoman’s customizable, fully upholstered frame and tufted top delivers a padded alternative to the coffee table.
Do any of these pieces inspire you to rethink storage? To see our other functional storage pieces and our complete collection of transitional furnishings, lighting, and decorative accessories, we invite you to visit the Gabby website and browse through our online catalog.
