The first known use of the word “cabinet” to describe a
piece of furniture was in a 1528 inventory of the
possessions of the French King Francis I. However, cabinets
were in use long before then. When Tutankhamen’s tomb was
opened in 1922, over 3,000 years after his burial, explorers
found more than 30 cabinets, which contained the remains of
his possessions. The first cabinets were recorded in England
in the sixteenth century. In the period that followed,
cabinet making became an art form all over Europe, with
cabinet makers producing ever more elaborate pieces. The
interiors of cabinets were often made to resemble miniature
palaces, and cabinets were frequently given as gifts between
Kings of different countries. Throughout the twentieth
century, cabinets, especially display cabinets with shelves
to show off ornaments, trophies, glass wear, photos and
other items, have become ever more popular in British homes.
Display cabinets can be used in almost any room in the
home, including the living room, dining room, kitchen,
hallway and bedroom.
Display cabinets, as the name suggests, have shelves that
are used to display items such as glassware, trophies,
photographs and ornaments. Some also have a cupboard or
drawers, which you can use for storage.
The main function of
a display cabinet is to
display items, so
there’s lots of space to
Display cabinets have shelves that are normally used to
display items like photos and ornaments, but can also be
used to store any number of items. Some cabinets in addition
have drawers or a cupboard, which are excellent for storage.
Display cabinets, filled with personal possessions, will add
a real individual, homely touch to your room.
Some display cabinets contain just shelves, while others
have drawers or a cupboard too. PineSolutions’ cabinets are
made from a combination of wood and glass, and have either
three or four shelves. Some display cabinets are designed to
fit in a corner, while others can go anywhere in a room.
There are three things you should consider when you’re
selecting your display cabinet: 1. Where is your display
cabinet going to go in your home? You’ll want to make sure
it fits in with the current decor and wood colour of your
chosen room. 2. What size of display cabinet do you want?
Our cabinets don’t vary too much in size, but this corner
unit is neater than this Devon Oak cabinet, for example. 3.
Is the entrance to your home big enough to fit the display
cabinet through? Our cabinets only come fully assembled.
To keep your display cabinet looking its best, clean and
protect it with good quality beeswax. You should also keep
your cabinet away from strong sunlight and take care not to
place it in front of, or next to, a radiator. The heat might
cause it to shrink, loosening joints and veneers.
