Surely one of the most useful pieces of contemporary modern design is the Ladderax Shelving system by Staples from 1960s. The modular system is completely flexible, with a beautifully simple design - 2 side 'ladders' with cross bars that can hold a mix of shelves and cabinets. These units are increasingly hard to find and achieve big money at auction in UK. The little guy in the photograph is a really neat unit with 3 bookshelves, one magazine shelf and a bureau cabinet and can be found leaning against a wall at the Dublin Flea tomorrow at the ridiculously low price of €95! Get 'em while they're hot!


  1. ah yeah but would you just LOOK at that cute little dansette!


  2. well spotted Josie.... it showropom condition with its original swing tag was snapped up first thing at the last Flea!
