The one in the original picture looks like it's from R&Y Augousti. You can buy their line at Barneys New York.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Design Talk: Eclectic vs. Collected
Here's another beautiful example of how a black-and-white base palette ties together seemingly diverse items into a collected look.
Lily Gahagan added this to Flea Market Finds: Wire Baskets
Turn into a wastebasket This good looking pair is holding some natural treasures (another option), but I think the size could also work quite well as a bin in the home office or bedroom. Another idea? Clip the handle and create a DIY Platner with a round piece of glass on top.
Beth Dotolo, RID, ASID added this to Paint Picks: Be Brave with Black
Another great low-commitment way to introduce black into your space is with a piece of furniture. A couple coats of paint in a high-gloss black paint will breathe new life into any piece.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Everyday Items Go Glossy and Glam
Console. Consoles are often found in hallways, and hallways are a great spot to have a little fun with decor. A console in glossy paint will add a little eye-catching pizzazz for those walking through.
Mari Richards added this to On Trend: Home Decor That Draws the Line
Wire-frame baskets, black and white art and frames, and a black table give the same high contrast without losing the warmth.
This is a perfect example of the relationship between art and the other elements in a space. With the strong black console and wall sculpture, the composition needed a little negative space to keep from reading as too heavy. Yet a single photo or painting centered over the table would have looked lost. The solution? A group of several works arranged in a way that creates fluidity and leaves breathing room, but still holds its own.
You can't see them, but mail, keys, makeup and multivitamins are hiding in those drawers.More: Are You a Piler or a Filer? A New Way to Think About Organizing

“I hate to break it to you, but designers don’t follow a secret rule book. There are no hard and fast laws governing what we do.” — Judith TaylorI feel like so many people are afraid to even begin to decorate their homes the way they truly want to because they are terrified of breaking some design rule. Please stop worrying about these rules, and if you are having trouble getting started, check out the tips Taylor provides. It will likely free you up from your design paralysis.

Con­sole. Con­soles are of­ten found in hall­ways, and hall­ways are a great spot to have a lit­tle fun with decor. A con­sole in glossy paint will add a lit­tle eye-catch­ing piz­zazz for those walk­ing through.

Hall table with drawers...mail, keys, glasses, lips and hair clips, dog bags and leashes... What more could it hold? (Maybe I need full chest of drawers, but I like this light and elegant polished line.)
