A beautiful modern home is as much about ergonomics as it is about aesthetics. It is the balance between the two that makes its pleasing on the eye and efficient as well. Space-savvy décor and smart furniture that multi-tasks are often a big part of this. But there are times when you look beyond the larger furniture pieces turn your attention towards smart shelves and displays that make a huge impact in the living room, bedroom or even the family room. Modular and wall-mounted shelves have made our lives far more easy and elegant in the last two decades. And design technology has allowed us to create entirely new designs that are eye-catching and even artistic!

FAVO: More Like Modern Art!

We absolutely love wall-mounted, modular shelves that draw attention with their sheer form and few do that as brilliantly as FAVO designed by Imperfetto Lab. What is special about these honeycomb-styled shelves is the fact that they leave the color scheme of the room largely unaltered. With their abstract curves and unexpected form, FAVO shelving units can be used pretty much anywhere and you can either add just one to the small bedroom wall or create an entire display in the living room with multiple units. FAVO brings a certain eclectic charm and modern minimalism together in a seamless fashion; a rare blend indeed!
