The precious items we collect throughout our lives deserve a fitting setting in which they can be appreciated. Display cabinets not only show the pieces off to their best advantage, but also protect them from dirt and accidental damage. Lighting (internal or external) not only enhances the display but can also provide gentle background light to the rest of the room. For things that need to be kept out of sight a lower section can be provided with doors. This can also be made deeper than the upper part giving a counter top.
