Though the name can be misleading, china cabinets did not originate in China. They started in England in the 17th century at the request of Queen Mary. The Queen loved “china,” carefully crafted ceramics from the East, so she had custom cabinets built to display them. The design then spread throughout Europe and America. Now, it’s a unique and versatile piece of furniture that proved it can stand the test of time. Early versions were almost all ornate and adhered to a very extravagant and traditional style. But as style and design evolved, so did the look of china cabinets.
