I am often hesitant to feature one-off designs as they sell through quickly. But I really love this upcycled Danish record storage unit at Etsy.

It’s a stunner and more than likely, very much changed from the original unit. But that’s a credit to the maker/upcycler rather than any sort of criticism.

It originally dates from the 1970s and at a guess, the early part of that decade as it hints more at a 1960s piece.

According to the seller, the original Danish cabinet was ‘stripped back to its bare bones’ before being painted in that bold geometric triangular pattern, made up of a colour palette of mint, cyan, blue, vanilla, green and grey. But sections of the original timber can still be seen.

The original timber slats have been retained, while the inside and rear backs of the cabinet have been finished with a vintage-inspired print and some metallic hairpin legs have been added as a nice finishing touch.

Just the one unit, so once it’s gone it is gone. If you want to be the owner, the price is £323.39.
