I have a soft spot for Midcentury Scandinavian design. Actually, I’d say it’s more of an obsession. And as far as I’m concerned, the holy grail of midcentury furniture is the wall unit. Those incredible modular units that span an entire wall with room to hold all of your brass figurines, Eames design books and abundance of houseplants. I’ve been dreaming of finding one at a random garage sale or flea market.

So, I guess you can say I was pretty excited when I saw our new Modern Modular Collection. It’s an updated take on those classic beauties.

The great thing about this collection is you can use one unit on its own, or bank a few together to fill a wall. You also have the option of a unit with two open cubbies, two closed cubbies or one of each depending on your needs. These pieces are perfect for a playroom to hold toys and games. Or, a nursery for baby essentials books and toys. And, I just love them in a shared space holding a mix of décor items and toys.
The powder-coated frame gives them a modern look, but the beautiful oak veneer harkens back to the 1950s pieces that inspired this collection, and keep the piece warm and inviting. They’re super versatile, and really beautiful. Best part, you don’t have to dig through an attic at an estate sale in the hopes of scoring one for your own home!
