Don’t be a vinyl philistine–get with the program, and treat your vinyl right by adding a record table to your space.
With the resurgence of vinyl comes one of those good kinds of problems to have–where to store your turntable and vinyl? The modern living room space doesn’t necessarily have the readymade solution. In the days of yesteryear, televisions and turntables were built into one glorious console that took center stage in the living room, den, or family room. While going back in time isn’t an option, neither is storing your record player on the coffee table. The solution is simple–to source a record table that serves both form and function.
Whether you are a serious vinyl aficionado or a weekend enthusiast, your record deck deserves the best–and so does your living space. There is absolutely no need to sacrifice style for function with the popularity of vinyl. The field is wide open no matter your taste and style preference. And that’s not to mention the opportunities for going vintage or repurposing a piece of furniture intended for another use into a record table, which could be a wonderfully DIY adventure!
