Shelves for the vinyls

All our shelving systems work perfectly as vinyl shelves!

We really think it’s extra lovely when furniture can have different functions, that’s the starting point of our design philosophy. The Portal shelving system is a multifunctional piece of furniture that can act as a regular bookshelf, TV unit, hall furniture and so on. In addition, it is absolutely perfect as a shelf for vinyl records. There is 32 cm space between the shelves, which makes the shelf an excellent vinyl shelf for your LPs.

Don’t let your LPs gather dust in the attic or be stuffed in a box. And besides, what a wonderful feeling it is to put on a real record, so go ahead and use them!

Not only is the shelf stylish and functional, it is also customizable according to your wishes. Check out below how wonderful it can be at home with your own specially adapted music furniture.

Is the underside of your record player more than 30.7 cm (the depth of our shelves)? Do like @swantjehinrichsen: cut a wooden board the same size as the base of your player and screw it into the shelf. See below.
