Pharmacy Cabinet

In a previous life, this quirky little cabinet was just a quiet servant in hospitals and pharmacies. But it has a bright future in your home.

This cabinet draws its inspiration from a metal cabinet that has its origins in the pharmacies, hospitals, and doctors offices of the 1930s. The original use of this cabinet was all about meeting the supply needs of doctors and nurses in examination rooms. As for the design, we have a few hunches on how that came about. For starters, glass on all sides let medical professionals find items they needed with a quick glance. The splayed stamped steel legs of the original version seem to have served several functions, as well. First, they provided a stable base for a tall cabinet. Second, the legs held the cabinet away from the wall to allow for more light and easy cleaning on the back side. Our version can be used in just about any location in your home. Instead of metal, this painted piece is made of poplar and MDF. A set of drawers below the glass shelves provides plenty of storage options.
