STYLES AND TYPOLOGIES OF SHOWCASES
Probably the most common are those that have a classic and sophisticated design. We have all seen a showcase at our grandparents’ house or in old houses. After all, it was a useful resource to decorate the living room and display different decorative elements: crockery, photos, flowers, clocks, sculptures, etc.
Today, these classic cabinets have acquired another connotation: they offer a vintage and retro image. They look great in current homes where it is intended to convey a more nostalgic image of the past, but within a contemporary environment. They are characterized by having moldings, blades in the panels, wavy finishes, etc.
On the other hand, there are the modern showcases in a minimalist style where straight lines prevail. In turn, there are also those that have basic formats and elementary structures or stackable modules. In this same line, it is worth highlighting the sideboards, where the frames are hardly interesting and the transparent glass stands out above all to show the interior with total clarity. It is the ideal place to store kitchenwar.
