Storage cabinets are well…for storing things in. But why limit their function to that? There’s no reason why buffets and sideboards and any storage cabinet couldn’t be both functional and good-looking. As the following designs will prove, this is entirely possible and desirable. A modern cabinet will usually have a design that’s a balanced combination between the two attributes mentioned just now, although this is not something limited to only one style.
Luna is a tall storage cabinet with a structure made of MDF with either a walnut veneer or orange lacquered finish. It has a base that holds a circular structure divided in two sections. The lower part is closed off with two different-colored doors and the upper half is open and serves as a bookshelf.
Five removable drawers and seven removable shelves allow this sideboard to be incredibly versatile and customizable. Its name is Mister and it’s a perfect addition to living rooms, dining areas and entertainment areas in general. The interior of the sideboard can be completely rearranged and used as a bar, desk or storage space.
This looks like a very intricate design made up of all these triangles. However, the actual storage compartments are not triangle-shaped. That’s just the design pattern of the doors. Arlequin C is an interesting and eye-catching design that gives the cabinet a very dynamic look emphasized by its irregular form.
We usually use storage cabinets to hide things and to keep them out of sight so a cabinet made of glass wouldn’t really be very efficient in this sense. Of course, it has its charm. Glass and acrylic give the Commodore cabinet a special look, not linked to any particular trend or style.
The key feature of this cabinet is its contrasting design. On one hand there’s the base which has these thin and slender legs and on the other hand there’s the body of the cabinet which is big and robust. The two door handles meet at the center forming a continuous circular form. The cabinet’s name is Polifemo. It’s made of wood and metal with its surface covered in copper and with decorative engravings.
Lancelot is a storage cabinet full of surprises. It’s tall and slender and you can’t really tell its shape just by looking at it from the front. The silhouette of the cabinet is an unusual one. The oval base reflects that like a mirror. Inside, the cabinet is quite roomy. Two large doors open to reveal shelves on which to keep books, bottles, towels and pretty much anything else you want.
