Our shelving system based on ladder bookshelf legs is the best way to create wall unit in mid century style!
Are you looking for handmade bookcase, sideboard or desk which will suits your home best? Read this and get know our mid century furniture system.
Every week many of you ask us if we can decrease the width of the bookcase from 74 cm to 65 cm, shorten the height of the desk from 78 cm to 74 cm, widen the sideboard, design legs higher than the Maxi (190 cm) or if we can make a piece of furniture in a week because the school year starts, someone close to you has a birthday or renovation is coming to an end and you need to quickly arrange the room.
We completely understand the need to resize; you want to adjust the piece to the space available and to make it work for you. We cannot say yes to all the requests but we are able to accommodate most of them. In terms of execution time, sometimes we are able to speed up the process.
Below I will try to explain what changes we can accommodate.
For clarity, I’ll break them down into four customization options:
1. CUSTOMIZE – build your furniture based on our standard elements.
As an example let’s take the Sideboard which consists of 90 cm high legs (Mini) and two 69 cm wide boxes.
As part of Customize, we can reduce its width by placing two 46 cm wide boxes and we can increase the leg height to 140 cm (Midi) or 190 cm (Maxi). See the figure below.

Due to the large number of possible variants (3 leg heights x multple box variants x 5 colors), we have placed examples with specific boxes. If you are interested in a specific width and height, e.g. width 166 cm on Maxi legs, but you want to use other boxes, let us know, we will prepare a model and a quote for such design. The price you see after you have chosen your options (width, height, color and boxes) is the price for exactly this combination.
2. SMALL CHANGES – changes in the dimensions of standard furniture; modifications that do not involve a greater interference in the standard product and are usually limited to size reduction. For example: shortening the legs, narrowing the desk top, trimming the side legs to the height of the furniture upper most shelf. Such changes usually do not generate additional cost, they only add more work.
Here are examples of such changes:
These are cosmetic changes that are easy to implement as they mostly involve trimming of existing elements.
Please remember that reducing the size of your piece of furniture does not require cutting out new elements but enlarging your piece does.
It is important to know that size reduction is not always feasible, because, for example, reducing the depth of the desk top too much may cause the desk to lose its aesthetic appeal and more importantly the side legs will not fit any more.
Let me know if your adjustments fall within the above scope and we will work together to make your piece happen.
3. BIGGER CHANGES – increasing the size of the furniture. Enlargement, as opposed to reduction, is more problematic because it requires us to design and prepare new, non-standard elements. Our boxes consist of many elements: fronts, sides, shelves, partitions and in the case of drawers also guides. Every width change of such a box generates a change of practically every element in that box, therefore it is more complicated than trimming one shelf. More often than not that one change will cause subsequent changes. Let’s take a desk as an example: if you want to change the depth of the desk top from 65 cm to 75 cm, then we have to make a deeper side leg to maintain the stability of the furniture. If it is a desk with drawers, then of course the drawers will need to be adjusted as well.
Here are few more examples:
If the above examples reflect the changes you have been thinking about please contact us. We will let you know if the adjustments are feasible and if yes we will prepare a 3D model for you in which you will see all the modifications, then we will provide you with a quote and determine the time needed to manufacture your piece.
