While we're talking about those vinyl records ...

AnthonyPlamondon Lisa Boone's post earlier this morning on beautiful cabinets for storing vinyl records reminded me of some recent home profiles where music collections were handled in different ways. As part of our ongoing Backstage Pass series in which music industry personalities invite us into their personal quarters, Eric Ducker profiled the home of Christopher Portugal, better known to many as Thes One and a member of the hip-hop duo People Under the Stairs. We loved the library ladder, bought on EBay and deployed for shelves of vinyl. (My colleague David A. Keeps offers another resource for such ladders: Alaco Ladder Co. in Chino.)

A different approach: record racks. In May we profiled Anthony Plamondon's house, designed by the Heyday Partnership in Lincoln Heights. Plamondon used plywood storage bins that lend a laid-back, almost bohemian edge to the house's modern design. You can tour the whole place by clicking here.

Got a clever vinyl storage solution? Send a picture to home@latimes.com with your contact information. We'll post the best ones here.
