It can be hard to find everyday objects that are functional, beautiful and sophisticated at the same time, but Ethnicraft’s Utilitile shelf combines all these characteristics effortlessly. When hung on your wall, it might look like a piece of contemporary art, but it reveals its function quickly: it’s a modular shelving and peg system to keep the keys, coats, dog leash and other utilities all in one place. A quirky design that makes everyday life a little easier!
One piece of this modular system is 40 cm wide and high, and 4 cm deep. When you prefer another type of wood, Utilitile also comes in teak and walnut. Wooden furniture needs a little love to last long, but beware: every type of wood was treated differently, and needs a different type of care. While most of the oak furniture is finished with a pigmented hardwax oil; the teak range comes without any finish or protective treatment – it’s merely polished, allowing the natural oils to rise to the surface. The walnut furniture, however, is finished with a natural tinted oil.
