This interesting little project came about after a request for some modern style shelving for a tiny loft conversion, but as usual with most commissions there were a couple of 'buts'. In this case it had to be cheap, (doesn´t it always), and also semi-knock down to allow it to be transported up a very narrow loft ladder. In fact it was the loft ladder that gave me the inspiration for the design, although I must admit to having seen several variations advertised in the back pages of the Sunday supplements.
However, this is my spin on the concept and although the framework is all completed in Maple to fit in with the modern decor, the shelves are painted MDF to minimize the cost. Contemporary furniture can often be made from a mixture of materials like this, you don´t have to spend a fortune on masses of solid timber and yet still get a stylish result.
