More storage options

I’ve got storage on the brain, so when I saw this at Chris and Susan's house last weekend I had to take some photos.

Karin and Nisse Strinning Wall System from the 1950s. Picked up somewhere on the Gold Coast.

These wall-mounted teak cabinets and shelves are extremely versatile allowing you to interchange the modules. I love how this one has the book rack and discrete drawers. It has the simple clean lines synonymous with Swedish design. That it is still in production today is a testament to its timelessness.

It has made me think that perhaps a wall-mounted unit rather than a standard sideboard could be an option for our sunroom. Number 3 son (who is now 18 months) is at an inconvenient height for his curious ways and a sideboard - thwarting him has become my current obsession. He'd be hard-pressed reaching this wall-mounted unit.

Food for thought.


  1. I really like that. What a great find. I love the fact you are thinking storage too! I am always thinking of storage. Good luck in your search for the perfect wall mounted unit (and good luck with little people's hands - I have some of those too! Ha!).

  2. What a great idea. Wall mounted storage. It just doesn't occur to us as much as it would have if we were living in the 1950s. And those hands. I can relate to that. Like little sticky dirty jam covered octopuses. xoxo

  3. I love the idea...the look has a certain lightness that a more traditional piece of furniture doesn't always have. It's so lovely and unobtrusive...and the fact that it's out of the reach of your little one is most certainly a plus!

  4. Jane and Katrina, those little hands are the bane of my life at the moment - glad you can relate.
    And thanks for stopping by Laura - that wall unit does fade into the background which is why I like it.

  5. I can just hear that CD 'Music to Lounge With' playing in the background! Oh & Austin Powers about to enter from stage left. I love it!
    Millie ^_^

  6. I love these - Charles & Ray Eames would be oohing and ahhing (like me))

  7. laurelstreet, I didn't pick you being a fan of this style, but I guess good design will always appeal to those with good taste!

    And Millie some Go Go dancing has been known to take place at their place...
