ISS Designs: Modern System Shelving
ISS there another choice? Yes there is. We have used Elfa Shelving (inexpensive and beautiful) from the Container Store time and time again, and once installed Vitsoe Shelving (expensive and beautiful), but we have yet to find a great shelving solution that fills a mid range price point. Luckily we recieved this tip from Adam yesterday, who wrote in recommending ISS Designs, saying he had bought it and set it up himself, and that you could buy it online. All of this is true.
ISS Designs, or Infinite Storage Solutions, is located in Richard Nixon’s old hometown of San Clemente, California, and they offer very stylish, minimal and modern system shelving that can be configured in any number of ways, from housing a large library of books to a small shelving and desk work area. Like Elfa, Vitsoe and Rakks, there system is based on standards and brackets that easily lock into place and can be mounted at any height. Shelving can either be mounted behind compression pole standards or in front of wall mounted standards.
We have contacted them to see where their dealers are in NYC, but we would trust ordering online. This is pretty straightforward stuff. Prices look good, and right now they are having a sale on some of their predesigned solutions. For example the arrangement at right is $621 instead of $828. (Thanks, Adam!) MGR
