CB2, a division of Crate & Barrel, started back in 1962, on Wells Street in Chicago. Apparently the neighborhood of Old Town, now famously a bustling neighborhood home to the comedy clubs Second City and Zanies was considered a “bohemian” destination. CB2 was opened by Gordan and Carole Segal and inspired by their honeymoon in the Caribbean. Seeing many affordable and beautiful European wares for sale in the Caribbean, they were inspired to bring that style and affordability stateside.
For the last sixty-some-odd years, Crate & Barrel and CB2 have become synonymous with beautiful and clean design. We knew that when creating aesthetically pleasing kitchen setups for our clients, CB2 and Crate & Barrel was a place we had to look for inspiration. Not only are their designs sleek and modern, but they also stand up well to any daily wear and tear!
Wall-Mounted Short Snack Shelf
This is a great option for lower ceilings or limited space! Maybe this works as a small, stand-alone snack station outside of the kitchen area so folks can swing by and grab a little bite. This piece of gorgeousness works just about wherever you need it! While maintaining a clean, modern look with thin lines, this sucker is anchored right to the wall so you won’t have any trouble keeping it in place or meeting regulations. With it’s 12” depth, it stays out of the way and it can slide in easily where you need it. We’ll make sure it stays beautiful and on theme with some modern looking wire baskets, plants and of course, the snacks to fill it all out!
Nuts and Bolts
Quality: These shelves are the truth when it comes to quality. Because they’re wall-mounted, they are about as sturdy as any shelves on the market. The solid aluminum frame ensures that this piece will last as long as you need it to. Even longer!
Volume: For aesthetic purposes, and to maintain this modern and airy look, we suggest not overcrowding the shelves; however, even with that, they’re able to hold quite a wide variety of snacks.
Maintenance: Aside from a regular wipe down from our Field Ops team, this piece doesn’t need much!
