Metal Storage Racks For Sale on 1stDibs

Find a variety of metal storage racks available on 1stDibs. The range of distinct metal storage racks — often made from metal, wood and iron — can elevate any home. Metal storage racks have been made for many years, and versions that date back to the 19th Century alongside those produced as recently as the 21st Century. Mid-Century Modern, Industrial and Art Deco metal storage racks are consistently popular styles. Large metal storage racks can prove too imposing for some spaces, so the smaller metal storage racks available at 1stDibs — each spanning 17 inches in width — may make for a better choice. Tomado, Adriaan Dekker and Get Back, Inc. each produced beautiful metal storage racks that are worth considering.

How Much are Metal Storage Racks?

Metal storage racks can differ in price owing to various characteristics — the average selling price at 1stDibs is $1,763, while the lowest priced sells for $275 and the highest can go for as much as $7,049.

Finding the Right Case Pieces and Storage Cabinets for You

Dressers, credenzas and cabinets have long been home staples, perfect for routine storage or protection of personal items. 

In the mid-19th century, cabinetmakers would mimic styles originating in the Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI eras for their dressers, bookshelves and other structures, and, later, simpler, streamlined wood designs allowed these “case pieces” or “case goods” — any furnishing that is unupholstered and has some semblance of a storage component — to blend into the background of any interior. 

Mid-century modern furniture enthusiasts will cite the tall modular wall units crafted in teak and other sought-after woods of the era by the likes of George Nelson and Finn Juhl. For these highly customizable furnishings, designers of the day delivered an alternative to big, heavy bookcases by considering the use of space — and, in particular, walls — in new and innovative ways. Mid-century modern credenzas, which, long and low, evolved from tables that were built as early as the 14th century in Italy, typically have no legs or very short legs and have grown in popularity as an alluring storage option over time. 

Although the name immediately invokes images of clothing, dressers were initially created in Europe for a much different purpose. This furnishing was initially a flat-surfaced, low-profile side table equipped with a few drawers — a common fixture used to dress and prepare meats in English kitchens throughout the Tudor period. The drawers served as perfect utensil storage. It wasn’t until the design made its way to North America that it became enlarged and equipped with enough space to hold clothing and cosmetics. The very history of storage case pieces is a testament to their versatility and well-earned place in any room. 

In the spirit of positioning your case goods center stage, decluttering can now be design-minded. A contemporary case piece with open shelving and painted wood details can prove functional as a storage unit as easily as it can a room divider. Whether you’re seeking a playful sideboard made of colored glass and metals, an antique Italian hand-carved storage cabinet or a glass-door vitrine to store and show off your collectibles, there are options for you on 1stDibs.
