I love Cadovius's modular shelving, but I don't have any room to own any myself. *sigh*

Also, I'm a bit clueless when it comes to the specifics - what's the difference between the Cado System and the Royal System?

Oh, I see - I thought they were two specific variations on the same design!

So when sellers refer to a 'Cado System' by Poul Cadovius, they're just being informal with the series name?

Royal System is the original name for this system.

Nuh-huh absolutely stunning Aardewerk - like Nic I also adore this shelving system but it'd look totally out of place in our Victorian cottage. I'll just have to content myself with the thought that I can have some when I move to my 60s house (whenever that might be!)

Poul Cadovius 'Royal System' wall unit Empty Royal vs Cado

Post by NikkiG on June 9th 2009, 11:36 am

There is a difference between the the 'Royal' system and 'Cado' system by Cadovius.
The Royal has the metal fixings and supports which hang in the sides of the wall battens.
The Cado has wooden supports with angled wooden dowels in the back which fix into angled holes in the front of the wall battens. The joinery involved means these systems are often considered more desireable. This also means it's a nightmare to put up as there is zero tolerance. The Royal is much more forgiving and is easier to find. Hope that helps!

I have a Cado wall System with the angled wooden dowels, on the reverse of one rosewood panel is a label that reads "Royal System" "Cado" so I'm not sure the above answer is correct. Sorry to add more confusion.

Ha! Yep, I've just come accross the same now! Very unhelpful isn't it? I've got several original brochures for the ones with the metal supports which all have 'Royal' all over them so that's clear enough. Lord knows what they were thinking or meaning by attaching 'Royal' to both types then. Guess I'll just have to stick to calling them 'Cadovius' and 'Cado' systems to differentiate as we try to keep both in stock.

Poul Cadovius 'Royal System' wall unit Empty Royal System - time to retire the family furniture

Post by vizwhiz on October 22nd 2010, 3:56 pm

Hello all...new poster here!
Been looking over the internet at several posts about the Cado "Royal System" furniture... My dad purchased an entire suite of teak Royal System furniture in 1971 (have the original order forms and such). This is the system has the vertical floor-to-ceiling rails with the holes facing the sides (not the front/back as the wooden dowel system has), uses metal pins to support each cabinet piece on the vertical rails (the cabinets have the metal support brackets that rest on the pins), and shelf and desk unit that have metal wire braces.

Mom gave away a couple pieces, but I have most of the original system still...and as may be expected there are the bumps and bruises of nearly 40 years of regular use...needs a good cleaning/oiling, etc. (I even wrote my name in one of the desk drawers when I was a kid!) Most Excellent

Much of it was used for "china hutch" duty - holding the guest dinnerware, serving dishes, etc. But several pieces were used as general "furniture" over the years (was a little kid when part of it began duty as bedroom furniture for me and my two brothers).

Anyway, Dad has passed now, Mom has moved to a little place, and the furniture is now in my garage. Time to move on. I'll post some pictures of what I have in another post... Can anyone give me advice on how to sell it? I'm not interested in trying to get a fortune for it, I just want to move it, but would like to see it appreciated for what it is...I don't want an endless parade of people who have no idea what they're looking at...you understand I'm sure, "serious interested parties only" kind of thing. But I'm concerned that if I post it on Craigslist or ebay, I'll be spending the next six months answering questions about which side faces up... Rolling Eyes

Okay...a couple pictures of the Cado Royal System teak furniture...
When you look at these, please keep in mind that (a) two little old people used them for years and didn't do much to take care of them (b) these pictures were taken before any real cleaning up - we just oiled the doors and outsides real quick where we could reach them in order to take these pictures...the backs and wire supports are really dusty! Sad
One other note - Dad put handles on the desk drawers so he could mount the desk unit on top of the large drawer unit (in the back) - handles on the drawers are not original. (There is one other "modification" Dad made Doh! that I can explain later.)
