Having worked with a number of clients who have active children and have been in need of a sturdy hallway solution, lockers are a fun solution for kids. For those of us with no kids and no worries, lockers can simply be a refreshing alternative to wood and chipboard laminate.
Particularly nice in country houses, the sturdiness of metal also fits in with the current rage for mid-century modern.
Here are five different sources:
1. Pottery Barn Teen - a whole set of locker furniture, from computer desk to bookcases - from $300
3. Sonrisa Furniture - recycled originals stripped to the steel in many different sizes available - from $450
4. Thistle and Crowe - you design what you want with these retro lockers - from $260
5. From Twenty Gauge in LA, lockers come in multiple combinations and shapes from "basket style" to "upright style". These are not vintage but new, so you can choose your colors and any dimensions that you want
