The High: Blogged by Sarah last week, the Ludus Modular (above, left) is made in Germany. It features a "library" section, which provides wrap around storage and a tabletop surface, and it's one of our favorite parts of the design.
Cost: No idea, but all signs point to EXPENSIVE.
Such a smart piece of furniture inspired us to go on a search for a lower cost alternative that would provide a similar look and function, and we came up with...
The Low: The Axis. CB2 makes this sofa wrapping storage units, which provide a similar storage solution and look. The components come in white and in three configurations - a left, right and center; to fit different furniture arrangements and sizes.
Cost: Left and Right Units are $199. and the Center Unit is $299.
