It's easy to accumulate a lot of curios, family artifacts and pictures, and bric-a-brac over the years. The hard part? Where and how to display them properly; once you have packed all the side tables, coffee tables, and wall space up and down the stairs, it's time to look elsewhere. Enter the curio cabinet -- a convenient, all-in-one-place-space for grouping your family heirlooms. And the best part --you can find many highly suitable curio cabinets for less than the princely sum of $500.
For example, this Pulaski Golden Oak Console Curio Cabinet
($483; was $759, and now with free shipping and setup). The cabinet features a mirrored back, V-grooved front glass, 25 watt fluorescent lighted interior, and adjustable shelving that will support up to 25 pounds. The wide front entry door allows for easy access to the interior so you may add and relocate your curios without effort, and the gold oak finish will fit right in with just about any decor.
For the corner of your home that cries out for
a nice piece of furniture, the Coaster 5-Shelf Corner Curio Cabinet
($418; was $499, and now with free shipping in the continental US) to accommodate your keepsakes and collectibles. It features side mirroring, adjustable shelves, a deep cherry finish over hardwood and veneer construction with floret embellishing, a full length glass front entry, and bracket legs for stability on a variety of flooring surfaces. Some assembly required and, alas, no interior lighting, but still a great bargain.
Another beautiful corn
er piece of furniture, the Lynwood Curio Cabinet
($498 and free shipping; was $789). This 6' tall curio cabinet has four adjustable shelves, interior lighting with a no-reach
, rear-mounted switch (so you don't have to open the cabinet door to turn on the light), a mirrored back to nicely reflect your keepsakes, and grooved front glass on the entry door. The Windsor cherry finish is applied atop the select hardwood and veneer frame. This curio cabinet would be very much at home in a formal dining room.
For wall mounting, or perhaps over a f
ireplace mantel, the Howard Miller Edmonton Wall Curio Cabinet
($269; was $440; free shipping within the continental US). Beaded side columns, acanthus leaf pediment molding, and a mirrored back and glass side walls; add to that the four adjustable glass shelves and a full height, hinged glass front access door and you've got a beautiful piece of furniture. Hardwood and veneers make up the structure of this cherry-finished curio cabinet. There is no internal illumination for this cabinet, so it needs to go in a well-lighted location.
The Gregory Curio Cabinet
($475 and free shipping; was $678) is crafted with profiled moldings and reeded columns, side access with polished brass hardware, and a traditional cherry finish on the hardwood and veneer frame. A roller switch controls the interior lighting, and the adjustable shelves are kept securely in place with cushioned metal clips. The curio cabinet is well-suited to any type of floor surface by virtue of the adjustable levelers at each corner. Nice.
