The Curious Curio: Glass, Steel & Iron Cabinets

The Curious Curio: Glass, Steel & Iron Cabinets

Glass and metal is a gorgeous combination and a classic staple in warm industrial style. As throwbacks to pharmacies, apothecaries and spice shops of the past, these cabinets will display and organize your belongings or collections to your heart's content.

Glass and metal, be it iron or steel, is a bit ironic, a case of opposites attract. Glass is all about delicacy and is easily shattered. In contrast, metals like iron and steel are all about strength and are extremely malleable. This combination of materials makes these cabinets a marriage made in heaven.
