Glass Cabinets by Lindebjerg Design

Can we talk about glass cabinets for a moment because I found some online that I have to share with you. I have two glass “Vitrines” but I’m thinking to sell one because the glass goes only halfway up with the bottom being solid wood. I’m thinking to swap it out for one with only glass like these from Lindebjerg Design in Denmark. My favorites are below shown in gray and the other is a shorter version in black for mounting to a wall. I would love to have a mountable glass vitrine like that in black (or white) for my kitchen wall, wouldn’t you? It would be gorgeous to display tea cups, tea tins, and spices inside, wouldn’t it?

These would be equally stunning in a bathroom with a clawfoot tub and a black and white tile floor or old wooden floors aged beautifully OR maybe even white or black penny tiles. Isn’t it fun to dream about the perfect bathroom? I could get lost in bathroom design. I want to ultimately own a home so I can make my interior dreams see the light of day but for now, I have to work with what I have in my rental apartment and that usually means buying what can be removed easily upon moving. So, back to cabinets!

Don’t you just love these cabinets though? I know they are very classic but they fit in a range of interiors whether you are into country, retro, modern, farmhouse, boho, or anything really – they are as versatile as jeans or a white t-shirt. I also like that they keep cherished possessions away from little fingers, animal hair, dust and curious vistors who may be tempted to touch what you may not really want them to handle due to expense, delicacy or simply how special they are. Some designers swear that we shouldn’t care about this – that we don’t live in a museum – and while I agree I do think precious and sentimental things need a spot, especially if you don’t want to hide them away – a cabinet in glass works great. If you have objects from Jonathan Adler, West Elm or Target on your shelf, you may not feel a need to overly protect them because they’re meant to be enjoyed and handled since they are not considered rare or precious. My husband collects rare and collectible books, delicate hand-painted boxes and other special one-of-a-kind collectibles from all over the world that date back a few centuries and those go into our glass cabinet from France. It’s nice to have a few corners in our home that feel extra special, why not?

Aren’t these gorgeous? Would you like something like this in your home and if so, what would you display inside?

    oh, I love them! I love that rustic look, but also a modern vibe that they have. As you sad, I’ve also have no problem imagine them in every space, modern or oldish.

    I would absolutely love these in my home! I have several glass cabinets already that my son uses to store and display a large vintage lightbulb collection. When they’re stored this way it requires less dusting, which is nice for the person doing the dusting in this house, ahem (me).

    I love the styling of the last photo. It’s so classy. Black, white, and gray together in a room are a favorite of mine. Those are cute, and versatile. I could also see them repainted in a color that pops. They are very nicely designed.

    Would love to own one of these, they are perfect for displaying things (in my case mostly ceramics) that we love and charish. i particulary like the one that you can mount to a wall so it would be safe enough from my boys little sticky fingers.

    These are really nice glass cabinets and they are decent sizes too. But they look quite a nuisance to keep clean.

    I love this. I would pick a color palette and collect a select few simple, beautiful things that fit with the palette. Books, jars, etc.

    If I had the space I would love one of those! I have actually already spotted my favourite one at an antique centre in Sydney. It is an old French armoire with glass doors and it is huge!
    I would display my treasured things, like my stone collection, my stone hearts, feathers, little glass objects and old books.

    Oh, that first one is stunning, and would look gorge in your home, Holly. I vote yes, yes and yes! I would fill the shelves with books (your collection is big enough to spread around), vase or ceramic collections, artworks and meaningful trinkets, just has they have been displayed here.

    These are really pretty and so simple. I would use them to display pretty wine glasses and pieces of cristal. Although I agree April Louise – I’d worry about keeping them looking shiny and clean all the time!

    I love these so much. Think my favourite picture is the one with the white cabinets and the ampersand. I’d have any of them in my house. Anywhere. Funny you should write about glass cabinets, as I just bought this one on eBay http://beautifulsquarefeet.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/bathroom-cabinet-finally.html I wasn’t going to paint it, but your beautiful pictures have got me thinking now!
