Being a professional online shopper, I’ve seen just about every small-space storage solution out there. But, when I ran into the ele.Box hanging desk storage shelves from myformdesign on Etsy, it felt like a truly special discovery. Not only are they visually unique, but I could instantly see them working in multiple rooms in multiple ways, from home office desks to bedside tables, laundry rooms, kitchen cabinets, and bathrooms. The best part? There’s no need for hardware, screws, drills, or installation time.

Typically, storage bins require their own storage areas, shelves require putting holes in your walls, and dressers and bookshelves take up considerable space. It’s almost as though the minds behind myformdesign set out to fulfill the need for storage and organization products that offer more solutions than they do headaches, and the brand’s ele.Box storage shelf is a primary example of this mission.

The ele.Box has a gap of either 2.9 or 3.5 centimeters (take your pick) that allows it to slip over the edge of and secure itself to a tabletop, desk, or other sturdy shelf. It can hang off the edge, adding storage space to what would otherwise be thin air, or arranged to add covered storage to the top of a surface. It can even hang horizontally by being slid around the vertical side of a bookshelf. What is more, the ele.Box comes in five colors, from white to black to “blutorange” (blood orange), so whether your decor is Scandinavian minimalist or modern and moody, there’s a shelf to suit.

No matter the size of your home or abilities you have (or don’t) as a renter or owner, this shelf is a truly ingenious storage solution for either hiding away or keeping on display. Grab a few (while they’re on sale!) and declutter, save space, and stay organized, all while keeping your decor a priority.
