Ever since I moved in to my wife’s apartment shortly after our engagement (she owned, I was renting, it was a no-brainer where we’d live) we’ve been slowly moving toward some semblance of organization. Today we took a big step toward finally putting everything in its place—we ordered a custom shelving system from ISS Designs.
Ours is compression-pole shelving—the poles sandwich between floor and ceiling and use a compressed spring to jam into place. Like a tension rod for a shower curtain. We didn’t want to have to drill any holes in the walls to put these up.
To the right of the bedroom door is a mini work station. To the left, enough shelving to accommodate all the books we currently keep in what is now the “office.”
Delivery comes in 2 to 3 weeks. I cannot wait to install this system and clear out a large portion of office.
