Interior Designer Mathilde from MK Design took over the Case blog to show how she used the Lap Shelving designed by Marina Bautier to create a modern and elegant aesthetic.

I’m Mathilde Kubisiak, but everybody calls me MK! I am a French stylist and interior designer, I’ve been living in London for the past 10 years. I love ceramics and travelling and I have an obsession for Feng shui and DIY.  

I have recently changed my old sofa which was enormous to a smaller and simpler piece which I find elevates and make our space bigger. With this latest update in the living room, I needed a matching bookcase to display my design books and magazines and favourite objects.

I wanted to create a modern and elegant look and for this reason I’ve selected the Lap Shelving from Case Furniture. It is an iconic modular storage solution designed with simplicity in mind.


Whether you need a single 1m shelving unit for an alcove or an entire wall of shelving in an office, the lap low shelving is adaptable to work in different environments. The name “Lap” refers to how the metal overlaps the solid oak wood structure. How you arrange the components is up to you, and they can be rearranged at any time. With beautiful details with ombre brown screws and powder-coated steel metal shelves to display all your favourite objects.

Finally, I am glad to report that Colonel the cat also approves of the design and he’s even tested the durability of the surface! I’m pleased to confirm it’s scratch friendly too!
