Conran’s classic shelving gets a modern update

Counter Balance: Content By Conran's Balance shelving collection has been updated in charcoal and oak

Content By Conran‘s new take on the Balance shelving system – Counter Balance – proves it is possible to improve on a classic. Until now only available in a single finish, the modern shelving system has been updated in a mix of on-trend charcoal and oak. The Counter Balance shelving units and coffee tables still combine good looks and functionality, but with a more decorative vibe. Livingetc would display jewel-bright glass or ceramics in the grey pockets for an easy way to add colour to a living room.

Counter Balance collection, from £229
