It pays to see things from a different perspective. For proof, check out this wholly unexpected moment from Rony Vardi and Dwight Weeks’s enviable Brooklyn townhouse: In a room that leads to the balcony, a set of black lockers found by Weeks, is mounted to the wall—sideways. It’s a whimsical and ingenious way to repurpose lockers as horizontal wall-mounted storage.

Their lockers are vintage, but you can source similar lockers from Global Industrial; the key is to look for locker sets that don’t have feet.
