Romaine. Curio Cabinet. October 10th , 2017.
The word "curios" is derived from the word "curiosity" and it serves as a good description for this furniture type. Curio cabinets are crafted with glass doors and, sometimes, glass sides. They are designed to show up to three sides of the objects put in them. It is an artful piece of furniture designed to exhibit, highlight and boost artful objects. Curio cabinets are a very useful place to keep all your dear treasures in one place without the fear of loosing them. It has a pleasure in itself as it showcases your favorite things and souvenirs to friends and family. However, they can be used for several other purposes. These cabinets can also have the honor to hold your family heirlooms - such as, grandmas silver comb and grandpas gold pen.
A floor model cabinet is the biggest of the three and can hold numerous collectibles of various shapes and sizes. These curios will normally have three to five shelves of glass or wood. Their sizes range from the narrow width and tall cabinets to shorter and long units. These curios are predominately made of wood frames with glass sides and fronts with a mirrored backdrop. The taller and narrower cabinets can also contain storage are in the lower portion of the cabinet for storage purposes. The cost of curio cabinets can differ by a wide margin from ten dollars to well over a thousand dollars. There are numerous brands of curios that are very popular. A curio cabinet will certainly enhance your home.
Corner type glass panels are one of my favorites: these are designed to fit securely in a corner, making them unobtrusive and taking up relatively little space in a room. Their biggest drawback is that they dont have much room for bulky items, but they are perfect for displaying small curiosities. Their shapes are rarely just a square. More often, they will have two sides made to fit snugly into a room corner, and the exposed side can be anything from another flat angle (making the cabinet a triangle) or rounded off to maximize room for your displays.
Curio cabinets have become a delight in themselves as they showcase your favorite things and mementos to friends and family, keep all your dear treasures in one place to admire them in wonderment everyday, or protect your growing collection of porcelain dolls from your 5-year old. Curio cabinets started as places to keep curios - defined in the dictionary as curious or unusual objects of art or knickknacks and whatnots that are perhaps worthy of collecting because of their oddity. This definition could, of course, include silver spoons from Alaska, all assortments of wedding and christening favors, crystals, face masks from Africa and possibly even shrunken heads from the Amazons of Ecuador and Peru.
The type of cabinet that you should choose for certain items should depend on where you will put it, what will be its main purpose, what is the existing design of your house, and what are your other furnitures, and more importantly what you will display in it. These considering factors will help you in choosing what design, size, or type of curio cabinet you should get. Curio cabinets are just so amazing that they can serve a number of purposes in your house and at the same time add that touch of elegance to whatever area of the house you put it. It also helps you organize your collections while others who see it can appreciate its beauty. The best curio cabinet for your most precious collections is the one that will bring out the best in your display and will brighten-up your home as a whole.
