This It Storage Cabinet Adds Architectural Character to a Room
The cupboard style is leading the way for fall organization.
Published Sep 16, 2020 11:20 AM
When making storage a priority in every corner, boxy bins, straight-edge shelving, and more angular forms are usually the way to go. But we’ve been noticing an organization piece that brings an elegant curve into the picture, while keeping things clean and streamlined.
Our go-to furniture shops are all carrying a very similar-looking black arched cabinet. Some companies are suggesting it as a place to display books and curios; others are recommending barware or a wardrobe. Rounded silhouettes have been all abuzz this past year, so it makes sense they’re starting to inform the design of more utilitarian objects, too. And the nice thing about a freestanding arched piece is that it instantly adds character to a room (no contractor involved). Shop four of our favorite takes on this organization trend.
For Displaying Small Treasures
Keep your precious objets d’art out of reach but top of mind by putting them behind a cupboard with see-through glass doors. This one (coming soon to Studio McGee’s shop) has a sturdy powder-coated iron frame and thick oakwood shelves, so you won’t have to worry about it (or anything inside) toppling over.
For Your Fall Wardrobe
Designed by Leanne Ford for her first collection with Crate & Barrel, this white oak piece finished in a dark charcoal stain can double as a closet (the large flat-front doors are completely solid). One of the shelves is fixed and two are adjustable, so you can easily customize it.
For Your Best-Looking Dishes
This one’s dark interior and patinaed glass will add an edgy look to the most basic white china collection. When you compare it to the cost of putting real built-in cabinets in your dining room or kitchen (an average of $5,000), you realize it’s a huge win for your budget, too.
For Everything Under the Sun
Who says you need a proper linen closet? While framed photos, vases, or your vinyl collection can live on this ash-wood piece’s shelves, the marble-top drawers are ideal for storing spare bedding. This fall you’re bound to be your most organized self yet.
