Eclectic Display Wall & Cabinet

Shelves layered on cabinets offer storage, display space and a grounding grid for miscellaneous artwork.

"One of the first things I did in this renovation was to build a huge 8 x 15 foot bulletin board as an image bank for varied pictures and inspirations," says designer Thomas O'Brien in his new book, American Modern. "It would be a place for a wider range of mediums to hang together—tear sheets from magazines and outtakes from photo shoots, personal mementos, architectural images, all peppered through with smaller pieces of framed art." He adds, "I custom made this board as part of the basic furniture configuration of my room, and added low cabinets to create a whole system for the wall."
