Are there furniture options that will help declutter a house?

My wife and I seem to constantly battle clutter at our house. Books, DVD's, CD's, papers, and "stuff" all seem to pile up. Additionally our house is older and doesn't have much closet space so blankets, coats, and other things have no place to go either. Neither of us are particularly messy people, we just don't seem to have any options for storing it all.
What we're wanting is to find reasonably priced, functional pieces of furniture that will help with this. It would be nice to find pieces that hide the things we want hidden and show off the things we want to show off (this won't be the same piece obviously).
We've looked online at the obvious places like Ikea and Crate and Barrel and have found a couple of promising things but they don't have stores near where we live so we'll have to pay high shipping costs. (Which we'd be willing to do if necessary)
Are there other places we might look? What furniture solutions have others used to help with their struggle? (Specific pieces of furniture, stores that sell nice pieces or general descriptions of types of pieces are welcome.)
