Curio furnitures – Recreating a cabinet of curiosities at home requires a strong taste for staging. Poorly exposed, your items and collections will lose their effect and you will not get the desired effect on your visitors. On the contrary, they must be enhanced by creating an adequate decor. Depending on the size and quantity of the objects you want to exhibit, there are several solutions available to you.
Generally, it is advisable not to disperse the objects but rather to gather them on a chimney, on a shelf, in a library or even a showcase. If you have a lot of pieces to exhibit, you can dedicate an entire wall to your collection, even a complete piece! You will then be at the head of a real small museum where to let free your imagination.

Ask yourself also about the preciousness or the fragility of your objects. Should they be handled or protected under a bell or window? Traditionally, cabinets of curiosities respect a set of aesthetic codes, but nothing prevents you from inventing yours to value your findings. The most classic will opt for a background in a dark shade (gray, black, burgundy, petrol blue …) that brings out the exhibits, and for exhibition accessories in copper, blackened wood, dark velvet, brass or glass.
