These retro graphic print record cabinets at Elizabeth Dot Design are both limited editions and conversation starters.
When I say limited I mean it too. You can currently pick up any of the four designs you see here, which are essentially variations of two designs. Once they are gone, they might not return. So not quite unique, but not far off it.
I have featured the upcycled work of Elizabeth Dot Design previously and the full range of her designs is well worth checking out. But this isn’t actually her design or upcycled, although it is available from the Elizabeth Dot Design website.
Let me explain. This is the handiwork of the brother of Elizabeth, described as a ‘skilled tradesman’, which is certainly borne out by these pieces.
Each of these record cabinets (or drinks cabinets if that’s the way you want to go) is made of MDF, with the finished unit repeatedly painted with primer then thoroughly sanded until all the edges are entirely smooth. Finally, it has been painted using hard-wearing eggshell paint by Farrow and Ball.
When I say painted, I mean given both the covering and the bold graphical design, which is the calling of these cabinets. Stylish wooden legs too, which have the option of a natural or teak finish, as well as different heights. One design slides open, the other uses hinges too.
How many records does it hold? Hard to say, but a significant number judging by how the cabinet looks with around 15 in place. Not a full collection, but a good amount to play on your record deck, which might well find a home on top of this piece.
As for price, you are looking at £289, which seems reasonable compared to other similar and more mass-produced cabinets around.
