Just because a piece of furniture is designed with function in mind, doesn’t mean it has to lack drama. Whether it’s through an unusual material, a bold silhouette, or surprising details, storage furniture can be spectacular. Need proof? Here are eight of our favorite storage pieces currently available at Viyet.
