Back in the late 1940ies, Poul Cadovius created one of the first modern style modular shelving units, and the Royal System series became an instant succes up until this day!
This set contains the attractive metal floor stands, which makes it much easier to build up the system against the wall, and also give it much more support. The black color compliments the soft teak timber very well, and gives this piece a fantastic elgegant appearance. The big boxes offers a maximum of space and functionality. Very elegant parts are the two upper drawer boxes.
All parts are in very good condition. When ordered, this item comes with an excellent packing and shipping service.
During the fifties many European furniture companies followed this success and started producing a wide range of comparable wall mounted systems, also using prefab materials for the production, but only the Cado system offered a very large number additional parts that could be choose from at the time; shelves and boxes in many sizes, different wood finishes etc. In the 1960ies, Cadovius took over the Danish furniture company France & Søn and renamed it into CADO. Cadovius worked with a number of famous designers such as Arne Vodder, Grete Jalk and Finn Juhl.
