As my own father, a quintessential vinyl
hoarder collector, could probably tell you, there’s only so many places you can store hundreds of old LPs before they start to take over and work their way into your home décor. Or before they meet their end in a local landfill.
These creations along with several other items are part of Wrecords by Monkey’s Off the Train Interior collection
. They're truly inspired, one-of-a-kind, (not to mention gently priced) and I totally dig 'em.
According to the WRecords by Monkey website
, the company has prevented over 100,000 records from entering landfills and/or collecting dust since starting up business in 2004. They also use water-based inks and paints and maintains an eco-friendly production facility. Cool stuff.
