Description: Design Dilemma: Create a storage solution with SCALE in an Interior Design Studio with 12′ ceilings.
Solution: Combine PAX Lyngdal sliding glass door storage (96″ tall x 118″ wide x 17″ deep) ABOVE 3′ high x 13′ wide Akurum/Nexus Black/Brown base cabinets with Numerar counters. (Non IKEA: 2 U-Line beverage fridges, priced more than the rest of the entire project!)
We are recent empty nesters! Launched the last of our 5 kiddos last spring (yes: all 5 concurrently in college!)
We moved to an ultra cool urban “live/work” loft in Downtown Tulsa. I’m an interior designer, and set up a studio on the ground floor (approx. 800 ft2).
After 25+ years of accumulating, we were forced to “downsize”. In this solution I have stuffed several dozen charger plates, assorted dishes, placemats, candles, silverware, glassware and even an entire setup for making s’mores out by the complex’s gas fire pit!
I used a spare black/brown PAX frame to trim the upper unit, as the 17″ PAX frame is only offered in white.
