Remember I told you about my plans for a String System in our living room ? In this blogpost I showed you the setup I built with the String builder. I planned a bookshelf that includes a folding table which we can use as a small dining table in our living room, without loosing too much space. Our living room is long and narrow, which makes it quite challenging to fit both a table and a bookshelf.
This String solution fits the space so perfectly and because everything is so close to the wall it really makes our living room look bigger. The table fits two chairs comfortably and we have been using this place for breakfast in the weekend and for working on our laptops in the evening. Like all the String components, the table is available in different wood tints, black, white and grey and you can try out your own modular shelving system with the easy String builder.
We usually leave the folding table open, but if we need more space we can just easily flip it down. You lift the table, snap the legs to a magnet and the table is easily stored away.
I’m in love with this piece of timeless design that I’m sure will be moving with us wherever we go. That’s the nice thing about a modular system, you can just keep changing it and adjust it to your needs.
