"Say Hello to a versatile modular system that offers a wide variety of décor options. In the horizontal "H" position, the Hello Blocks can be stacked in an infinite number of arrangements to create a unique and customizable shelving system..."
"Individually — in the vertical "I" position — a block can be used as a stool, side table, or pedestal. Multiple blocks can be grouped to create coffee tables or benches.
Blocks are priced per unit, so you can mix and match colors and woods, buy as as few or as many as you like, and easily expand your collection down the road. Painted blocks come in four standard colors White, Moss, Berry (all pictured above), and Lagoon (wall color in photo). A full spectrum of custom colors is available.
Hello Blocks are made from sustainably harvested materials and finished with non-toxic, low-VOC paints and finishes. "
