Royal Shelving System

Customisable, Modern & Stunning Storage System

One of the world’s first wall-mounted furniture systems; Modular and space saving; Made with solid wood


Designed in 1948, the Royal Shelving System was a pioneer of its time and has since become one of the most recognized and respected successes in the world of Danish Design. Poul Cadovius saw that most traditional furniture took up much valuable floor space and introduced a wall-mounted shelving concept that enabled more floor space to be used for movement or other purposes.


With plenty of components such as cabinets, sliding doors, drawers and even desks, one can customise the rustic and charming Royal Shelving System to their own specific needs – for both work and storage.


If you love the Royal Shelving System, you just might want to check out Poul Cadovius’ other design endeavours – System Cado and the exquisite Cadovius Butterfly Shelf.
