Maybe it’s a natural reaction to working on the Internet, but I feel like I’m becoming more attached to older technology and physical objects. Don’t worry, I’m not going full Steampunk on you, but things like vinyl records have a quaint, retro appeal. I bought my boyfriend a little Crosley portable turntable for Christmas, and I’m surprised how much we use it now. We must have purchased at least 20 records already! The only downside is what to do with them when they’re not in use. That’s where this Volume Storage and Display Unit from Test Collective would come in handy.
I love that this piece is both decorative and practical. There’s ample room for the turntable on top, record storage underneath and those clever slots for showing off the really cool or arty covers. (I’d put our M83, St. Vincent and Al Green up there, for sure.)
How about you? Do you still own any vinyl? If so, what’s your favorite thing to listen to? Or your favorite album cover?
