My partner and I are busy outfitting our new place in San Francisco, and both of us being mid-century nuts we’re considering a vintage wall-mounted shelving/storage unit a la Poul Cadovius or Kai Kristiansen. I assume these fell out of style because they’re not the most practical storage systems in the world, but I love them. Any fellow design nerds on here have personal experience with them, good or bad?
We’re also considering the modern equivalent Hart system, but it’s a little out of our price range.
Oh damn you’ve definitely got some experience with them. We’re in a relatively small space (approx. 750 sq ft), so our most immediate need is general storage to free up some counter space. The wall in question is in the kitchen/dining area, and we looked at some larger freestanding “hutches” but didn’t find anything we particularly cared for.
We have about 95in/240cm W x 92in/233cm H of wall space and are thinking either a 2 or 3 bay unit with as many cabinets as possible (as opposed to shelves only) would do the trick. Trying to stay south of $3,000 USD. The whole process so far has me wishing we lived in Europe - seems like they’re relatively easy to come by over there.
