A cabinet is a storage or display case or cupboard with shelves and drawers. Some cabinets are freestanding, while others are built into or connected to a wall, such as a medicine cabinet. Wood (solid or with veneers or artificial surfaces), coated steel (famous for medicine cabinets), or synthetic materials are the most frequent materials used in cabinets. Commercial cabinets often have a melamine-particleboard substrate and are finished with Wilsonart or Formica, a high-pressure decorative laminate.

There may be one or more doors with door hardware on the front of the cabinet and, in rare cases, a lock. One or more doors, drawers, and/or shelves may be found in a cabinet. Short cabinets frequently feature a polished top used for show or as a working surface, similar to kitchen counters.

A dresser or chest of drawers is a cabinet meant for use in a bedroom with numerous drawers generally positioned one above another in one or more columns for clothing and small things. A nightstand or night table is another name for a tiny bedside cabinet. A wardrobe, armoire, or (in certain countries) a closet is a tall cabinet used for garment storage that includes hanging items.

Cabinet manufacturers were responsible for the idea and manufacturing of any piece of furniture before the emergence of industrial design. Cabinet builders such as Thomas Sheraton, Thomas Chippendale, Shaver, and Wormley Brothers Cabinet Constructors, and George Hepplewhite produced volumes on furniture forms in the final part of the 18th century. These publications were collections of their and other cabinet manufacturers’ designs. André-Charles Boulle (11 November 1642 – 29 February 1732) was arguably the most prominent cabinetmaker before the dawn of industrial design, and his legacy is known as “Boulle Work,” and the École Boulle, an institution of fine arts and crafts and applied arts in Paris, today bears testament to his Art.

With the industrial revolution and the use of steam power to cabinetmaking tools, mass production techniques were gradually extended to virtually all elements of cabinetmaking, and the traditional cabinet shop ceased to be the primary supplier of home and commercial furniture. Parallel to this progression, the increasing middle class in most industrialized countries began to demand well-crafted furniture. The overall number of traditional cabinet manufacturers gradually increased as a result of this.

Fine furniture was uncommon in Western Europe and North America before 1650. People didn’t need it, and they couldn’t afford it in most cases. They made do with basic yet functional items.

The arts and craft movement, which began in the United Kingdom in the mid-nineteenth century, sparked a demand for traditional cabinetmaking and other handcrafted items. It quickly spread throughout the British Empire, including the United States. This trend highlighted the response to the Victorian era’s eclectic historicism and the ‘soulless’ machine-made manufacturing becoming more common. Nearly a quarter of the United Kingdom people thought cabinetry was one of the noblest and respectable talents at the time, and 31% of those who believed this desired their children to acquire the craft.

Woodworking became a popular pastime among the middle classes after WWII. Amateurs who are more serious and talented in this sector are now producing furniture that matches professional cabinet builders. Together, their work today constitutes a small fraction of furniture manufacturing in any industrial country. Still, their numbers are much higher than those of their counterparts in the 18th century and earlier.
