Cool vinyl record storage ideas

Every record collection needs a good home. So if you started one, you’ll soon find out that storing your record collection and turntable setup can be quite a challenge. The most important rule is to never stock your record one on another. The most healthy way of keeping your collection are rows of vertically set records, but not too tight – just enough to easily take them out and keep them vertical at the same time. The result of keeping records in stacks or leaned rows is warping them. Below you find a couple of neat record storage ideas for your inspiration. Also if you’re getting serious about record collecting you should check out this list of vinyl and turntable accessories designed to help your vinyl and record player stay in good shape for longer.

String Lights

Michael Anastassiades’s String Lights, a minimal ceiling lamp looks like a pencil line drawn in the air. The Cypriot designer based in London, describes the principle that inspired the Spring Lights ceiling lamp: a black electric wire that sets up a relationship with the architecture of a space, precisely becoming part of the lines formed by the walls of a room. And stretched out along these lines are two different light sources: one in the shape of an isosceles triangle, the other in the form of a sphere. A system of tensors give volume and three-dimensionality to the form outlined by this lightweight cord that plays with space, while the two LED lamps emit a warm light. string-light-1
