Vintage curio cabinet for more contemporary interiors
Since this term originated as early as the 18th century and these pieces came back in popularity during the 20th, curio cabinets will always maintain an antique or vintage feel.
However, if you have traditional, transitional, or contemporary interiors, it’d be wiser to look for monochrome designs in a neutral color (like black, gray, or white) and relying on simpler, cleaner lines.
Narrow curio cabinets
Many vintage curio cabinets follow a double-door design: this is great news if you have an endless collection to showcase, but not so much if space is one of your main concerns.
In that case, choose narrower but taller models relying on a few extra shelves.
Not only will they automatically result in a slenderer look, but they’ll make it easier to divide smaller selections of different types of items.

Do you really want to put your items in the spotlight (quite literally)? Then consider a vintage curio cabinet with lighting features.
This will work especially well with jewelry, minerals, and other items that will automatically create aesthetically pleasing sparkles and shadows.
Plus, it’ll be another handy light to have on together with your table lamps whenever you wish to switch off the main overhead light to create a dimmer, special ambiance.
Rustic curio cabinet vintage
Farmhouse or cottage decor? A vintage curio cabinet can add to its natural and rustic feel if you choose an aged wood finish or a painted design with a lightly distressed look.
This will work particularly well if you’re thinking of showcasing items that reinforce this familiar inspiration (such as crockery or beautifully bound books) and alternating them with a few decorative elements from the countryside, like dried flowers or wheat compositions.
Old curio cabinet with a retro or mid century modern feel
With their abundance of details, vintage curio cabinets are a great match for interiors that draw inspiration from the trends of the 50s and 60s.
To further reinforce this style, look for warmer wood finishes like cherry, walnut, or oak. Outward-pointing legs are another immediately recognizable element from this decor.
Ornate antique curio cabinet
Perhaps what you love the most about these pieces of furniture is their tie to the most majestic period-based interiors? In that case, treat yourself to an extremely ornate design.
Wood carvings, harmonious legs, and darker wood finishes tend to be the best way of boasting the elegance behind these cabinets.
Antique curio cabinet in a lighter finish

Darker antique curio cabinets are a safe choice in the largest rooms. However, there are a few instances where lighter finishes would be a much wiser move.
First of all, if space is a problem: don’t forget that darker finishes would make your room look even more cramped.
Also, if you already have lots of pieces of furniture in darker wood, a curio cabinet in a light finish will prevent a heavy feel.
Wall mounted curio cabinet for small rooms
Not all vintage curio cabinets must mean sacrificing your precious floor real estate!
If you’re already running low on available space in your living room, a smaller wall-mounted cabinet will solve that problem.
Of course, you’ll also have fewer shelves, so be realistic with the type and number of items you wish to display.
Corner curio cabinet antique
Kings Brand Furniture
Another space-saving alternative that’s especially a godsend in smaller apartments consists of corner models.
These vintage curio cabinets will allow you to make the most of that odd corner where no other traditional pieces of furniture would fit.
Thanks to the depth created by the two walls, you’ll gain extra display space without giving up too much of that floor area.
Extra large antique curio cabinets
If, on the contrary, space is the least of your concerns, this is your chance to go big. Perhaps your new curio cabinet antique could take up most of your living room wall?
While double-door models tend to offer more than enough space for most people, a four-door design will allow you to showcase an even bigger collection while also avoiding a cramped look.
