It was no easy task choosing and finding the right one. After all, we wanted a piece that would suit our tastes (which usually changes every so often...) and would be versatile enough for any decor and last us for years to come.
In choosing a China Cabinet there were a couple of inspirational cabinets I saw on Pinterest
There are the classics...

For the Mid-Century lover...
And for the decor fashionista...
|Makes me think this is owned by Kate Spade - just gorgeous|
And finally, our personal choice, here she is...
|Isn't she a beaut?|
We got it from Restoration Hardware. And knowing that store, the price was steep, BUT, thinking about this as long-term furniture, an investment really and a future heirloom perhaps, I think it's worth every penny. :-)
It's 91 inches tall - massively heavy because its made of solid oak with a weathered oak drifted finish. It's a cabinet that could go with any decor and style because it is both "substantially classic organic" (Hmm, a new term I think, I just made up).
Inside it houses all my knick knacks collected thru the years from different sales - and knowing me, most of them are from flea, thrift or yard!

|Remember how I told you how obsessed I am with Jonathan Adler- partial proof here|

|I am obsessed with these handles|
They are full-length cremone casement locks in blackened brass!
