Tread Softly Harlequin Shelving Unit


Enhanced by Tread Softly artistry and design, this is an utterly divine piece of mid-century elegance and craftmanship which is a classic for any contemporary home. All of Tread Softly's pieces are vintage items that have been lovingly upcycled.


This multi-functional piece of furniture not only offers ample storage within its shelving system and drawers, but also works as a practical workstation with a large slide out desk area that tucks in above the drawers. Above this desk area, the central tambour doors open to reveal the secretary features: three small drawers, shelves and three pigeonholes.

The teak wood finish is a warm statement, and is made even more exciting by its sharp design and cutting edge colours. This is a Tread Softly original, and one off which has been hand painted using Fusion Mineral Paint.

This piece originated in Denmak in the 1960s, and was designed by Johannes Sorth, produced by his own company, Bornholm Møbelfabrik. It has the original stamp on the reverse with the maker's mark incorporating the outline of the island of Bornholm and the initials BM.

Tread Softly was created by Hannah Wiles, a Manchester-based fine artist who restores and upcycles second-hand and vintage furniture. All furniture pieces are sourced locally, such as second-hand shops and online marketplaces. This immensely benefits the local economy as well as the environment, by reducing the need for transportation and by giving previously unloved furniture a new lease of life.

Hannah is determined to only use environmentally-sound products and materials for her upcycling projects. For example, the paints that are used are non-toxic, lead-free, odourless, have no added VOCs, and contain no ammonia or formaldehyde. Veganism is also important to Hannah, who has been a vegan for over 9 years. She strives to only use vegan-friendly products to ensure that all her projects are sustainable and are aligned to her values.

All products are shipped in a care box, which comes with extra materials and care instructions to repair the products when natural wear-and-tear occurs. This ensures that your furniture lasts generations.
