Buy antique cabinet from one of the UK's premier furniture dealers. We have an excellent range of antique cabinets, antique drinks cabinets & display cabinets. Whether you need to display a collection of fine bone china, or perhaps some much-prized items of jewellery, trophies, porcelain figurines or anything else you may have and want to show off, an antique display cabinet from Regent Antiques is bound to be right up your street.

Here at Regent Antiques we stock a broad range of antique cabinets (and a few contemporary ones), for all purposes including cocktail cabinets, display cabinets, drinks cabinets, book cabinets, sideboards and even a cabinet for storing your sheet music. Then, of course, there is the one item of bedroom furniture that you simply could not do without - the bedside cabinet - although, as several of you have pointed out, the bed is pretty important as well.

Antique Drinks Cabinets and Antique Cocktail Cabinets

Antique Furniture, and indeed contemporary furniture, should be both nice to look at and functional too. Drinks cabinets and antique cocktail cabinets serve three main purposes. Firstly, of course, they provide storage for your bottles of spirits, mixers and other related paraphernalia. Secondly, they provide storage for your glasses, usually of several different sizes and types according to what is being served. Finally, they are often designed not only to store those items but to display them, making the drinks cabinet or cocktail cabinet a decorative object as well as a practical one. Take your entertaining up to a new level by placing a well-stocked cocktail cabinet in your entertaining space.

Art Deco cocktail cabinets make a regular appearance in our showroom and are in great demand, so if you are an Art Deco lover who also indulges in a bit of “mixology,” make sure that you check us out regularly or sign up for our new arrivals notifications.

Corner Cabinets - The Ultimate Space Saver

Designed to fit snugly into a corner occupying the minimum amount of floor space, a corner cabinet can be a godsend when space is at a premium. Despite their shape and small size, the corner cabinet can provide a surprising amount of storage and it is for that reason that they remain popular with those who live in a smaller property. We normally have a fine choice of corner cabinets - please call to confirm availability before travelling to the showroom as they are in high demand and turnover can be quick.

Sideboards and Credenza

Once much more commonplace than is now the case, we have that most useful of all cabinet types, the sideboard. Storage for cutlery, crockery and other dining requisites all built into the cabinet that will also be used as a base for serving food in the dining room. A credenza is a type of sideboard that, traditionally, would not have legs although more recently that has been seen to change. Credenzas are also typically narrower than a sideboard so they occupy less space in the dining room or other locations where space may be restricted, such as a hallway or corridor.

We usually have a good choice of antique sideboards and credenza, in a variety of sizes and styles so if its a piece of furniture for the dining room that you seek - you’ve come to the right place.

Antique Bedside Cabinets, Art Deco Bedside Cabinets

The bedside cabinet is almost an essential part of living in twenty first century - if you didn’t have one where would you put your smartphone at night, when you have finally finished using it until you wake up the following morning? The answer is, of course, on your bedside cabinet or bedside table, along with all the other things that you just cannot do without.

An antique bedside cabinet, or perhaps one of our stock of quirky yet elegant Art Deco bedside cabinets. Of course bedside cabinets are normally purchased in pairs but if you just want one we can usually accommodate that as well.

If you are looking for a matching antique wardrobe for your bedside cabinets then we are often able to help - it’s worth signing up for our regular email notifications when a new item comes into stock from your preferred categories.

Who Knows What A Pier Cabinet Is? See Antique Pier Cabinets at Regent Antiques

Masonry piers are structural devices used to strengthen parts of a building that may otherwise lack enough strength to support the load of the building. Large window areas are a typical example of where piers may be used. The origin of the pier cabinet is that it was developed to be small and compact so that it could occupy the space between the window piers of a building.

Modern building technology has more or less seen the demise of the pier in masonry but the pier cabinet lives on. In our showroom you will usually find several examples of these neat, petite and elegant cabinets, just right for that particular area that other cabinets are too big for.

Antique Cabinets - Changing with the Passing of Time

Antiques, of course, are often repurposed as they travel through time and a cabinet that was originally designed for one purpose can easily be adapted for use storing something quite different, so take a look through the range and then try to make a trip to our warehouse to see the true extent of our range of antique cabinets. Whoever heard of a Victorian DVD cabinet? Well, Victorian cabinets designed for storing books, for example, may now have such a new role and in a hundred year’s time it may be different again, who knows?

It could be said that we never really own antiques, we just look after them and enjoy them for the time that we are around and then leave them to delight and serve future generations. On this philosophical note I will conclude this section by saying please come and see our range of antique cabinets at our North London showrooms - details on the homepage, along with opening times - you’ll be glad you did.

If you are not in the UK and can’t pay us a visit, no problem, we ship worldwide - just ask for a quote before purchasing. Our team of furniture experts are on hand to answer your queries in person, on the phone, or by email - you will find the contact details on almost every page of this website.
