Ormazd Curio Cabinet September 28th, 2017 - 16:52:34
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.
Changing sizes between panels to alter the overall shape of the cabinet is another idea. For example, with a centerpiece glass curio cabinet you can use progressively smaller sizes of circular panels the higher up you go to make it look like an archetypical christmas tree, for example, or progressively smaller perfect square layers to make it look like a pyramid. Lastly using stained, etched, or frosted glass panels are just some of the other ideas you can apply. Why limit yourself to regular glass, after all? You can increase the artistic visual appeal of your curio cabinet by using different types of glass. All you need to do is find a local glass worker who you can hire to make specialized panels for your cabinet, and youre good to go.
Just as with the shot glasses, some people collect spoons from the different places they visit. You always see decorative spoons everywhere you go, they are quite popular. Again, hanging wall curio cabinets are perfect for these spoons; they are small and fit easily within the elegant curios. I have seen people collect bells as well. Bells are very elegant and treasured by many people. Therefore, they want something just as elegant to display them in, which is where a great wall mount curio cabinet comes in very handy.
There are different versions of these kind of cabinets; some can be mounted on wall while others can store many large items. This type of curio is well crafted with wood or metal trim on the sides or back with glasses on the rest of the way around. Using a glass cabinet will allow you to make your objects viewable to your guests, friends and even to your family members, regardless of which side of the cabinet they may be on. This curio cabinet contains no wood post that blocks the view of the artwork that is stored or kept inside of it.
