Three (More) Ways to Store a CD Collection

CD shelf, minimum depth

Not everyone is giving up CDs and moving to purely digital files - so how do you store those CDs, when you want to keep them in their jewel cases? I've addressed this before - but here are some new ideas.

From Pandiculor in Germany comes the Cainad modular media shelf. Each CD module is 90 cm (35.4 inches) wide and 16.6 cm high - and your filled shelves will only be as deep as a CD jewel case. Each module stores 74 CDs in their cases. I can't find any information on what the shelving is made of. [Found on DesignSpray; DesignSpray found via From Europe]

Another shelving system comes from Vitsoe; the CD shelves are 16 cm (6.3 inches) deep; there are other depths for other items. In North America, you can buy a Vitsoe system through Moss. [via MadeByGirl]

And for a different approach, here's a custom CD cabinet from Frid Furniture, a maker of lovely wood flat files.

Is anyone still buying CD's?

Jeri Dansky said...

Yes! I know some of them! And according to this article, one recent study showed that two-thirds of music consumers buy only CDs.

And here's a discussion where people explain why they still buy CDs.

Jeri, thought this website might be of interest to some of your readers. Its a new rack system from the UK that helps organize CD and DVD storage.

Thanks, Dave - that's one I hadn't seen yet!
