The often neglected window blind is getting a chance to shine thanks to Shade by GREATBOYS. A unique cabinet, in place of typical doors or drawers, it uses a window blind to cover its contents. Interestingly, when closed, Shade by GREATBOYS almost looks like a giant air vent. Of course, the stick and cord used to open and close as well as draw up and down the blinds is a dead giveaway as to its true inspiration.

Available in all white, Shade by GREATBOYS re-imagines the classic cabinet in a creative and imaginative way. Fun and quirky, the design is simple enough to fit into just about any home or office. The only downside is that people might expect some sunshine to peak through when drawn open. Stats for Window Blind-Inspired Cabinets Trending: Older & Chilly
