Open shelving and built-in bookcases have been having a heyday, well, for as long as I can possibly remember. But, I’m curious. Does anyone use curiosity cabinets anymore? As I’m working to find beautiful storage solutions for our house (how do you hide ever-growing lego collections anyway!!), I’m beginning to seriously consider a large display cabinet for our dining room.
Yes, I’m still aspiring to a minimalist vibe in our house (alla our media room) as much as I can, but there’s always just stuff. And my various addictions (namely ceramics and glassware) don’t really help my cause. But I think a display cabinet that would allow me to see some of my collections but keep them contained, just might be the perfect solution.
The goal is to find a relatively modern option that feels simultaneously current, but timeless. It seems Scandinavians are very into the display cabinet game because every one of these images are from Scandinavian blogs or Ikea! I’m still a bit on the fence but I think a hunt is officially on for the perfect piece. I’ll be sure to keep you updated!
What do you think?
Great choices here for inspiration! Happy hunting!!
Thanks Rebecca – can’t wait to find the perfect piece
Oh yes! I have in my living room to contain all of our family photos and one in my study/office to keep order to all of my projects and paperwork. They’re fantastic!
That’s such a good idea Vicki! Love the idea of cabinet in my office!
It’s nice for added decor, but if you plan to stack things there and organize the place then it isn’t so practical because it’s see-through
