Corner transformer

Our overall staff pick, the Furinno Turn-N-Tube 3-Tier Corner Display Rack, is a basic but very functional furniture item that's simple to assemble and within the range of most people's budgets.

If you're looking for something a little more sophisticated, consider the Vasagle 5-Tier Corner Shelf. This has an attractive floating effect and offers a chic, contemporary way to display books and more.

We also like the RiverRidge Kids Corner Cabinet. It is designed for use in children's bedrooms, but if this fits the space and decor elsewhere in your home, there is no reason this storage solution can't be used there, too.
