Create secret units to surprise and mesmerize

It is up to the designer to make wise use of every free space in the house. There are many ways to do that: there might be structural niches you have inside the walls or open space that usually remain under the staircase. Apply on the walls a deep boiserie creating shelves units and even modules, or placing entire units all over the wall made, that secretly holds multiple-purpose divisions.

Whatever is the case, often, we can either “hide” it under a secret door or paneling, invisible to the unknown eye, or on the contrary, make it a statement, create visual interest and make it dominant.

In this post, I want to share with you one type of solution mentioned above. It is a series of wall units that the Italian producer Ulivi creates in his laboratory, utilizing beautiful woods, leather, and refined metals, creating geometry in scale and elegantly make use of every angle/turn of the walls. On the external, it looks like “simple paneling” and maybe a small library for the opened units with bookshelves. Still, for the property holder, it is a great way to have secret storage units hidden under this beautiful layer.

What do you say? Would you like to apply such a trick to your own house? Where would you place it: in the home office, living room, or someplace else? Let me know in the comments.

Best wishes to you all,
