This large red telephone booth cabinet is one of those items that makes me dearly wish for a larger home! The only thing better than having a large curio cabinet with a British theme like this would be having the genuine article in my garden! A guy can dream can’t he?
While a red phone box in the garden would probably mainly be ornamental, the cool thing about this red telephone booth cabinet is that it also has a functional purpose. With the glass shelving, I picture it more holding collectibles like a curio cabinet or perhaps china or glassware if you have a British themed dining room. As you can tell from the photos, the seller suggests that it can house books as well, but with glass shelving I picture books interspersed with other collectibles. Perhaps a series of hardcover Dickens books alongside your mementos from a trip to London for instance? I suppose you could even use this red telephone booth cabinet as a liquor cabinet in a British pub themed room in your home, eh? I guess the options are limitless but at this size, this is definitely a statement piece.
This red telephone booth cabinet is 72″ tall by 29.5″ wide by 16.5″ deep and sold by The King’s Bay who are known for selling a variety of eclectic and unique home decor items like this British curio cabinet.
If I could just scratch up thirty inches of wall space, I can totally see this beautiful vintage style cabinet in my home, how about you? Where would you put it and what would you use it to display? The more I think about it, the more I think that maybe it’s time to find another piece of furniture I can part with!
By the way, if you’re also struggling for a place to put a large curio cabinet like this or you don’t want to spend quite this much, there are a number of small display cabinets available out there as well. You can see some of them here:
