Exedra Shelf by Stefan Hepner

Stefan Hepner created Exedra not just as a wall shelf, but also as a wall shrine for all of your important “objects, books and personal relics.” The New York based designer was inspired by those little alcoves that you often find in architecture that hold a statue or something else of high regard.

The perimeter of the shelf resembles crumbled paper with a unique texture that makes it look like it was built coming out of the wall. Made from reinforced white resin, the shelf is lightweight while still remaining sturdy enough to hold your stuff.
