This is the Royal System Shelving Unit (Cado) created by Poul Cadovius of Denmark. In the mid-1940s, he devised an ingenious wall-mounted shelving system to save floor space: the Royal System (1948). The first owner was a master woodworker, and I kept them in my design studio during my duration of ownership. I have since moved, and with my move goes some of my items. My loss is your gain!

Don't miss out on your chance to own this incredibly desirable piece of furniture history. It stands 6.5 ft tall (78in or 198 cm) and 5.3ft wide (64.5in or 163cm). The regular sized shelves are 31.5" wide x 8" deep. The deepest shelves (shelves at the bottom) measure 31.5" wide x 12" deep.

The angled shelf is 31.5" wide and 11.3" from top to bottom. The wooden support beams are 78" tall x 1 3/8" width x 7/8 deep.

Condition Considering this piece of furniture is over half a century old, it stands to be in pretty remarkable condition! There is no water damage seen on any of the shelves with very minor dings and scratches present on the rest Shelves have normal use scratches.

The worst damages found are in the photos. Out of the entire unit the support beams seem to have the most dings, and the shelves themselves are in good condition. The middle support beam has an extra screw-hole on the beam (see photo). I fully believe that everything is 100% original with no retouching or refinishing done to shelves or the unit itself. What you see is what you get. All working and all original parts. If you need to have this item in your collection, however, I can potentially be flexible but you must message me first. Please make sure to review the pictures and message me if you have any questions. Thank you so much for looking and have a great day!
