I get a lot of questions about the shelf system that are often featured in the homes we show: The string shelf.  It is very popular in Sweden as you can see. You can buy it new in different colors or ,if you are lucky, you can find it at flea markets.

It was designed in 1949 by Swedish architect Nisse Strinning. You can read more about it here.

Here are some of the string shelfs in our Dos Visits. To see more of the visits just click the photos.
