Pär’s personal record cabinet

Bespoke solution for Swedish vinyl record collector

Pär and his family live in Jönköping, 80 miles (130 kilometres) east of Gothenburg, Sweden. The 44-year-old loves rock music and is a passionate record collector.

Pär is not only particularly attached to his very first LP, Destroyer by American hard rock band KISS, ‘although the band has released better albums in the past,’ admits the music fan. He has an emotional attachment to a great many of his vinyls. Certain albums awaken memories and remind him of experiences and concerts he went to.

Best storage of vinyl records

Over the years the Swede has collected more than 450 records covering all genres of music. ‘The main issue for collectors is where to keep all the vinyl records. Of course you have to store them upright, but it’s always been important to me to play my LPs, to access them from all sides and from above and to be able to see the cover when looking for a specific album,’ explains the sales employee. Another important aspect is that the collection is close to the record player.

‘The storage of vinyls is a big challenge to all music lovers. I’ve come up with a solution that meets my needs perfectly.’

Small living areas call for space-saving solutions

Pär and his family moved from a house to a new flat so there was less space for them all to live in. There was also less space for his collection of vinyls. Pär saw the opportunity to have a bespoke storage solution fitted into his home. ‘I explained the “basic laws” to my cabinet maker. He racked his brains and came up with a solution that fits beautifully into our living room.’

Easy access

Pär’s requirements are met perfectly by a cabinet without a door which is equipped with six drawers that open individually (Blum’s LEGRABOX pure in silk white). The customised record cabinet was made in no time, and the fan of Rock, Hard Rock and Metal is overjoyed with the solution. ‘I can quickly access all my vinyls and organise my collection as I like. Unlike other record collectors, I don’t keep my LPs in alphabetical order. Sometimes I organise them by band, sometimes by title and sometimes by theme,’ confides the father-of-two.
