It is a thing of beauty. Not just that, you can order this midcentury Vinyl Table by HRDL right now.
HRDL is the business name of Stian Herdal, who started up the company from a small one car garage in Kristiansand, Norway in 2015, with the intention of creating some modern-day midcentury modern pieces like this one.
Yes, there are more and in time I will probably come back to HRDL, but for now I am going to focus on the pick of the bunch, which is this wonderful Vinyl Table.
Why that name? Well, just look at it, you can probably work it out. This is a custom-made unit designed for a record player and a selection of records. The maker reckons around 200 can fit into the storage area.
The deck space is on the opposite side, with space for an amplifier behind that tambour door, along with an area for cable management.
The entire unit is produced from ‘Valchromat’ (no, I’m not sure what that is) and oak, with a lovely angled frame for support, which puts me in mind of Eames.
So, you’ve seen it and you have fallen in love with it. We now need to talk money. As I said, this is a custom-made piece and the work needed to produce this is likely to be extensive. As a result, you are looking at £1,396 if you want one in your home, plus the shipping from Norway. It takes between 6 and 8 weeks to make one.
