Hanging Shelf Solutions in Mid-Century Homes

Small Space Solutions

Hanging and floating shelves are perfect ways to take advantage of vertical space and these images of mid-century homes feature inspiring combinations of shelves with desks, seating and even a bed.

These units combine utilitarian and decorative space, fitting together artwork, wallpaper and storage like a puzzle. We often see similar mid-century wall units for sale on craigslist, but any of these set ups could be easily re-created with IKEA shelving and storage or custom-built.
