From Calling Booth Wall Mounts to Space-Saving Decors

As units are getting smaller, furniture design is getting smarter, as evidenced by these wall-mounted home fixtures. Not only are wall mounts space-saving, but are decorative and functional. Many of these designs make the most of the given space and resources.

Many of these wall mounts are concealable and foldable furniture pieces. Desks, chairs and even modular workshops are being affixed to walls to make more room in apartment units. Others are more decorative than functional; thin lights and wall decals are replacing bulkier lamps and 3D statues.

Wall-mounted shelving units are both practical and decorative. They often come in unique shapes and colors and also hold household items like books, plants or electronics. Some wall-mounted shelves are enclosed with doors, resembling something like traditional display cabinets.
