Characterized by their tall, narrow profiles and glass sides, curio cabinets have a name that derives from the curiosities they are intended to store. Available in a variety of shapes and sizes, curio furniture encloses your precious keepsakes, protecting them from dust. Unlike bookshelves, this storage furniture option keeps items contained securely, ensuring they can’t get knocked over. Multiple shelves provide ample storage space for showing off your chic collectibles in a beautiful glass curio cabinet.
Once termed Cabinets of Curiosity, the curio cabinet reached its popularity during the Victorian Era. What was once saved for professional scientists to display their most prized specimens, then became used for commonfolk to show off their rarest finds for all to see. Just like today, what each individual decided to collect depended upon their personal interests.
The most admired curio cabinets often formed miniature museums, attractions in which people would travel from long distances to visit. It was considered a sign of status to have a well-stocked curiosity acquisition. Today, it is a growing trend to have a collection of art and objects displayed in curio furniture. A glass curio cabinet becomes a personal and interesting focal point for any room.
