Pieces of Nordic Happiness

Hay | Shelves

Hay is a Danish design company founded in 2002 and characterized by innovativeness, bold designs and high quality industrial manufacturing. Easily accessible to large audiences, Hay's furniture, lighting and interior products have become iconic pieces of modern Scandinavian design.

Behind Hay's ingenious and surprising designs lies an interesting way of thinking: the designers are given a full creative freedom to move forward the things that they like, as long as they follow Hay's main principles: architectonic, design and technological ambitions and sustainability. Hay collaborates with both well-known and fresh names of modern design. Some of its best known designers include Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec and Hee Welling, whose designs include the popular chair collections About A Chair and Hee.

Scandinavian designer shelves add sophisticated storage space to your home

Designer shelves not only help you to tame the chaos in your home but also function as distinctive design items that will be cherished for years to come. We at Finnish Design Shop have collected all of our favourite shelf designs on this page. Whether you're looking for a small, decorative shelf on your wall, a full-size bookshelf or modular shelving systems, we've got you covered!

When choosing a new designer shelf for your home, start by considering what kind of items you want to store and how much space you have for your new shelf. Be careful not to cram the shelf too full! Also, most shelves will definitely look better if you can leave a bit of empty space around them. If you're hoping to add just a bit of extra storage space on the wall or showcase some of your favourite objects in a neat way, opt for wall shelves with an open design. If there's need to store a bigger amount of your favourite books, tableware or storage boxes, browse through our selection of bookcases – you'll be sure to find high-quality designer shelves for both small and larger spaces. And in case you're looking for an adaptable shelf that can be expanded or contracted whenever needed, our modular shelving units by String Furniture, Montana Furniture and other favourite brands are probably just the right option for you!

Our selection of Scandinavian designer shelves provides you with a range of colours, materials and size options. Wooden shelves are a traditional and ever-popular part of Nordic interiors – from our selection, you can find both classic and contemporary wooden shelves by Scandinavian brands including ArtekLundiaMenu, Muuto and Hay. Besides wood, other common materials include metal, MDF, plastic as well as luxurious marble and brass. And in terms of colours, you can choose to go with classic and neutral tones or spruce up the decor with more intense colours. Whichever is your choice, at Finnish Design Shop you can be sure to find a designer shelf that truly stands the test of time. We offer fast, worldwide delivery to over 180 countries, and all our stock items are ready to be shipped right away.
