I saw a home makeover show a while back, where the clueless "expert" ripped out a 1950s shelving system, replacing it with some high street tat. They obviously they didn’t realise these things make big money at auction – and are being reproduced by some of the hip design companies, like SCP offshoot Case, which has just launched the CaseFile storage system.
Designed by Matthew Hilton, this is very much in keeping with the classic (and particularly Scandinavian) storage systems of the past. It consists of steel uprights, with walnut or oak shelving and drawers, all adjustable to your required height. There’s also a bureau component, which drops down so you can use it as a desk.
Great, vintage-inspired design that’s new into the company’s range. As yet, we don’t have a price, but as this is the more affordable end of SCP, it should be too hard on your pocket.
