If you live in a small dwelling in a big city, you know that decorating your place is all about maximizing space (even vertical space!) and minimizing clutter- all while looking sleek and modern. If you are planning to get married in the near future, we’d like to suggest that you consider West Elm or CB2 for your wedding registry. Both offer great pieces that are perfect for filling small homes in the city. Otherwise, if you’re just looking for a great gift for an urban dweller, we’ve collected this list of functional products, accessories and furniture that will keep any space organized and beautiful.
We love this piece from CB2. Crafted from acacia wood and iron, this wine bar is the perfect blend of industrial and earthy. Store your barware, wine, liquor and more in the Maitre Wine Bar. Standing at 39” high, the countertop is a great place to create your favorite cocktails.
Add a bit of glam to any room with these simple, but stunning silver floating shelves. Made of aluminum, the Sterling Wall Mounted Shelf measures 23.5” long and 7” deep and can hold up to 45 pounds!
Turn ordinary plants into a lovely work of art with these fun Ceramic Wall Planters, from West Elm. Available in 3 sizes, these planters can add a pop to any room- indoors or out! Purchase one…or a few to create a beautiful hanging garden.
West Elm, experts in Urban Décor, offer these Box Frame Nesting Tables crafted from solid mango wood tops set on a steel frame. Use these next to your bed or your couch and store the small table under the larger one until needed. They’re available in a whitewash or café finish to match any color scheme.
The Vapor Acrylic Chairs from CB2 are virtually invisible and won’t make a small room look cluttered. These simple, clear chairs with chrome legs are great at a desk or can be used around a dining table. The Vapor Chair is also available in a 24” or 30” barstool.
Utilize your vertical space and stay organized with this Magnetic Modular System made famous on Shark Tank. Start with the 10” wall plates and add magnetic containers of various sizes. Add more containers as needed and tailor your space to suit your needs!
Add a pop of color or a touch of mid-century modern to any room with one of the lamps from West Elm’s newest collaborator, Rejuvenation. The collection includes beautiful lamps in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Perfect for the living room, family room or bedroom!
The Valet Jewelry Cabinet found at CB2 was designed by art student Josh Crampton from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. And as Josh said, it “hides jewelry or makeup out of sight, but not out of reach.” The 23.5” mirrored square features 5 adjustable shelves, a fixed rod, 5 small pegs and 4 large pegs, all hidden behind a beautiful glass mirror.
Expand your counter space with this over-the-sink Cutting Board. It extends up to 24.5” to fit just about any sink and includes a colander for easy washing and draining of cut produce.
Keep your spices off of your counters, but still close at hand with this Magnetic Spice Rack from Bed Bath & Beyond. This would also be great in an office filled with paperclips and rubber bands instead of spices.
