Apartment Therapy is running its Fall Colors contest - which has me inspired to show you more options for colorful storage.
Let's start with Giorgio Piotto, which sure has some wake-you-up colors. One place to get this furniture, outside of Italy, is Nella Vitrina in New York.
Cocopa in Colorado has a color palette with 20 options; you can get this cupboard in any of them. Cocopa says: "We use formaldehyde-free adhesives and low-VOC paints and finishes to improve our customers' indoor air quality, and build with rustic vintage reclaimed pine from America's heartland, as well as FSC and SFI certified lumber.
Furniturea, in Maine, has 24 colors to choose from for their bookcases or other storage pieces. [via Apartment Therapy]
There is some pretty stunning custom work out there, too - like this piece from Sherborn Woodworks in Massachusetts.
And this red bookcase from Thomas Cobb Custom Furniture Makers in the U.K. is stunning, too. Update on Oct. 2, 2103: The Thomas Cobb website has disappeared.
At a more affordable price, there's this aqua cabinet from Oliver Bonas - only available in stores in the U.K. Update on Jan. 17, 2010: The aqua cabinet is no longer shown on the web site.
And if you're in New Zealand, you can go to Crabapple Cottage Furniture. Update on Jan. 17, 2010: The web site for this company has disappeared.
French Heritage has a number of colorful options; this is the company's yellow tower bookcase, in the Maison du Soleil collection.
And finally, you could get a kitchen cabinet imported to the U.S. from Mexico.
I know there's a lot of the world I left out, so if you'd like to point me to something from your area, that would be nice!
