Furnishings with X motifs conjure for us one of two things: Sinewy cross braces bring to mind steely structural feats. Rigid wooden X's make us think of more traditional designs. We've gathered a few X-inspired designs here from both sides of the fence...

1 Wisteria's Naturally Beautiful Bookshelf
2 French Tiered Metal Shelves, also from Wisteria
3 We featured this chair a while back, similar to these at Restoration Hardware
4 Crossbeam Collection coffee table from Ambience Doré
5 A cross-braced classic: the Eames Storage Unit by Vitra
