They already make one of the best record consoles on the market, so it’s a surprise to see the Compo oak vinyl storage unit at La Redoute too.
By the best one, I am of course talking about the wonderful and hugely popular Ronda 1960s-style vinyl cabinet, which is part of the wider 1960s Ronda furniture range. Both are well worth checking out if you have a thing for 1960s or midcentury modern design.
But if there’s a drawback to the Ronda, it’s perhaps that 1960s look. Personally, I love it, but it is heavily styled and for some people, perhaps a little too ‘1960s’ for their room. This is where the Compo vinyl storage unit comes in.
If you compare the two designs, they are pretty much the same in terms of functionality and size. The difference is the look. So both have three sections for your vinyl below, a place to keep your popular vinyl ‘to hand’ for playing, a smaller storage area below the surface and of course, that surface itself to keep a deck on.
The one here has an oak finish and fairly minimal black legs for support and a design that could fit into pretty much any room or home. If you want to go full-on 1960s, go for the Ronda. If you want something a little more low key, this is perhaps the one for you.
As for price, both are available for £350 officially, although La Redoute tends to have a deal on its furniture most of the time. Right now you can save 30 per cent off the price using the code autumn. That brings the price down around £105, taking the bottom line price to £245. That’s a real bargain if you get on it (or the Ronda) quickly.
