The Atocha Design Open/Close collection references mid-century album storage and Hi-Fi style, but is updated for the needs of the twenty-first-century music lover. The Open/Close cabinet combines soft-closing drawers for albums with shelves for components. A center slide-out shelf provides a convenient surface for connecting digital devices such as DJ laptops and tablets. The rear panel behind components is always vented to keep tubes and components cool and allow easy access to cords and interconnects.
Atocha Design furniture frees you from being stuck on the first 10 records at the front of your stack - in every design you can see your records face-first. Rediscover and reconnect with those forgotten albums that were hard to reach in the back and haven't been played in ages.
Atocha Design Record Cabinets & Open/Close Cabinets are made of solid American hardwood and hardwood veneer, with American-made solid brass drawer pulls. ATOCHA DESIGN selects high-quality sustainable materials and hardware that are beautiful and durable, with a range of finishes available. The Atocha Design Record Cabinet collection uses materials made entirely in the USA, with the exception of Santos Palisander finish, which is sustainably-farmed and sourced from Bolivia. Drawer slides, drawer pulls and all wood is sourced or made in the USA. The solid brass drawer pulls are made from recycled brass in the Northeast, and the soft-close drawer slides installed under each drawer are made in North Carolina. The Atocha Design workshop, where all of our products are built, is located in Upstate New York.
Our sustainable standard wood options include walnut, oak, cherry, maple and santos palisander and are selected for their beauty and durability.
Our hardwood veneer is thinly-sliced hardwood which allows us to have continual grain across the front, and waterfall the grain from the top down the sides. The backs are finished from the same material, allowing you to float the piece in a room.
Atocha Design furniture is GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Compliant, made from sustainably harvested wood and are formaldehyde-and-lead-free.
To ensure absolute safety, we recommend that you open only one drawer at a time.
Our solid-brass drawer pulls are custom-made in the U.S.A. Below are the solid brass hardware we keep in stock.
Careful consideration has gone into the engineering and construction of Atocha Design furniture to handle the heavy weight of an LP collection. The suggested capacity of the drawers is 95 LPs per drawer (multiply by the number of drawers in the cabinet). While drawers can be packed tighter, we prefer leaving finger room for optimal "flipping" access and viewing cover art. The design allows you to organize albums based on your preferences, be it genre or alphabetical.
Visit the CUSTOM DESIGN page if you don't see what you have in mind. We are happy to work together to create your perfect cabinet. Each hand-crafted piece is made to order in New York and can be configured in a variety of sizes and from a choice of materials.

Weekly light dusting with a clean, dry duster (such as swiffer) is all that is needed to maintain your piece. If a more thorough cleaning is needed, a very slightly damp microfiber cloth can be used across the piece, followed by a dry cloth. A clear, matte water-based finish is applied to the furniture before it ships making it essentially maintenance free.
