From the very early days of human civilization there have been markets and there have been shops. And just like the merchants of the days long gone even the shopkeepers of today would like to display their products in the same classy manner, in display racks, to maximize the viewer exposure of their product. Even today the wooden display racks remain popular as they bring about the old world charm along with their new metal and synthetic successors.
Wooden display racks have an unlikely advantage over the synthetic, plastic or metal racks as they help the retailer to create an old world charm for their classy or vintage products. Although maintenance and sanitization would need some precious attention of the owner if it the location of the shop is in a humid area of the world. But if it is cold and dry then these wooden display racks can be long lasting in places like Europe and North America. The magic of wooden display racks is that no matter how cheap they can be, as in perishable goods, when kept in a wooden display rack it gives them a class, as in a royal or an antique feel.
This phenomenon not only works for cheap perishable goods, but also stands a very good and unique platform for real antiques and curios. But before we delve into the segment of antiquities we should also not ignore the range of novelty goods that are customary to be displayed in wooden display racks, and with that wooden display racks are also nowadays used for regular modern day products where it may compete with other metal or wire display racks. As for the latter we can use wooden display racks as display baskets or display basket racks, crates, wine racks, tub displays, barrel racks, barrel displays, as slat walls, corner forms, display cabinets etc.
For the antique and curio aspects we can discuss the following as perfect examples for using the display racks. First of all we can talk about the old English sewing cabinets. Old English sewing tables are mostly handcrafted and can be 100% customized. These are a specialty of California. These can be used for both storage and work station purposes. For people who do not want their hobby to take over their living space and still work from the comfortable space of their home this display rack can double up as both by taking minimum space. Here is a display rack which can be used as a display rack for the customers in the front office, but after hours just by opening the drawer a full working sewing console can be taken out of it.
Hence showing that these display racks can not only be a classic add on to your shop, but also work as multipurpose furniture which can really come in handy when space is a constraint. This piece of novelty furniture is so handy and useful that it makes ones expense worthwhile. A messy sewing table is always the distracting factor in any boutique or any general tailoring store. But here just the opening and closing of a drawer can turn an untidy workshop to a designer shop of haute-couture and high fashion. There are similar wooden display racks which can give a showroom the classy look but keeping it practical and still taking the image of the shop to a higher niche. Namely such display racks can be sideboards, wall cupboards and shelves, bookcases, coffee tables etc.
