Order – Our new samples

How to Make – Great Wall Desks

We are surprised to see how popular large floating desks are considering they are difficult to buy or make yourself, we've attached a few good youtube links so you can see how professionals make a wall desk and see the effort that goes into it.

Google Sketchup + 3DWarehouse

We’ve been busy building CAD models so it’s easy to use our shelving system in every project. We’re now at  3D Warehouse  but we have also updated all our CAD bundles in our  download  section of our website.

Our Shelving System Just Gets Better

We hope you've seen most of our new components on the website, including cabinets, desks and clothes hangers. Our new parts have been designed to complement our existing wall shelving, but now give our system greater functionality.
