If the idea of combining a smile and storage sounds perfectly pleasant to you, then Alexi McCarthy's 'Face Shelving' may need to be your next furniture purchase. Not only does this shelving offer users a fun decor solution to bland white walls, but it's totally functional as well.

The design website 'Freshome' quotes designer Alexi McCarthy's explanation behind her Face Shelving as "the idea is that depending what you put in or on the shelves, you create different faces and expressions." This bold red shelving has a simplistic design that children can grow up happy with.

Implications - Consumers are always scrambling to find storage solutions as city-living doesn't always offer ample space for homeowners. Companies that put a fun, aesthetic twist on storing solutions and products that simplify consumer's storage issues will continue to be necessary purchases in the eyes of many consumers.
