When you’re furnishing a small space, finding cabinets that are just the right size can be a challenge.
There’s no shortage of expansive credenzas or towering chests of drawers, but smaller-scale cabinets that can be squeezed into an tiny entry hall, placed between a pair of twin beds or positioned on either side of a fireplace can be harder to find.
“There aren’t that many options on the market,” said Beata Heuman, an interior designer based in London, who designed her own pint-size, 35-inch-wide Lyre cabinet after failing to find suitable pieces for her living room. “That was something I made for my house because I really couldn’t find what I wanted.”
Small cabinets are helpful for holding lamps, speakers and decorative objects that might otherwise sit on a table. But they come with an added benefit: extra storage.
