Lets admit it – Every single thing we own is not cute, even though we would very much like them to be, so hiding those little ugly ducklings in a pretty cabinet is a necessity. Most antique cabinets keep a decent size without being bulky and most important of all – they have beautiful proportions.

Cabinets, as we know them, where developing during the Baroque period during the early 17th Century when furniture where made as individual, freestanding pieces instead of being attached to the walls.
