If storage is at a premium, consider making your own vertical bathroom cubbies! Also, did I mention that they swivel?? Totally sold on the swiveling.
Fractal 23 by Takeshi Miyakawa is a modular drawer system that features drawers on all four sides. Made of plywood, the cube measures a petite 28" x 28" x 28", could be used as a side table, provided it's on a carousel so there's access to all those drawers.
Sick of her standard Billy bookcase from IKEA, Gina sought to create something more interesting. And having found these square cubes at her local craft store, she grabbed her drill and paintbrush, and got to the creatin'.
"With cubes in hand (or in arms), I set out to make my shelf unit. Not a bad end result, if I do say so myself. After I had painted the interiors of the cubes, I realized that I might have loved it even more had I opted for a honey oak-stained exterior instead of white painted. Oh well, maybe next project."

If the Carre D'etoiles had cheeks I'd pinch 'em! The little French prefab cubes are what we here in MN would call cabins, but they're unlike any cabin I've ever seen. They're about 10' x 10' square of pure luxury.
They have everything you need to get away from it all, including a corner kitchen, a bathroom, bed and parquet floors, as well as a flat panel tv. They're also mp3, telephone and internet ready. The icing on these little cakes, for me, are their sky observation kits, which include an astronomical telescope, a stellar chart and 'pedagogical games on astronomy'.
Heinz Julen’s cube chair has a very prosaic name. It's called Cube Chair. Made of wood, aluminum and leather, the (60 x 60 cm when closed and 83 x 70 cm when opened) chair will set you back around $3,750.
