they have goos storage units in argos with canvas pull out drawers that are long and low. have seen them in places like joj maman bebe and blooming marvellous as well but they are much more expensive than argos.
only thing with argos is that the drawers are quite bright colours
This might sound like a bad idea but I'd try to take a half-day off and have a look around second hand shops in your area - this is the kind of piece of furniture which they have loads of, and you won't spend a fortune either.
Oh thanks for all the replies. I had to remove myself from MN to throw together some dinner.
I'm not exactly set in stone but it has to be something fairly short I think, no more than 5 foot tall as it is to fit under a staircase. it can be wide as there is a long wall but no more than 2' deep I'd say
I've been thinking about either
Retro wooden design with a modern twist (wood can't be too light - maybe based on a 1940-50's style)
Perspex/toughened glass with stainless steel
The design is fairly flexible as it will be the only piece of storage furniture in the room. It's going in the direction of a trendy appartment look but more than anything I just want something a bit different.
I will try and find some links to some of the things I've been looking at.
