Enclose. Organize, protect, conceal, display. Impose order, set forth a treasure, store a secret


A place for everything, and everything in its place.

Of all your furniture, the cabinet is the piece you interact with most directly. It's designed to hold your stuff. Its purpose requires that you touch it, manipulate it. Thus it affords you various satisfactions: the tactile, in a carefully-worked edge or surface, or the silky action of a drawer, riding on wooden slides. That of function, fulfilled: the weightless swing of a well-fitted door,  and the quiet coda of its latching. The not-inconsiderable satisfaction of the ship-shape.
