Børge Mogensen Cabinets

October 10th, 2017

The back end of our kitchen has always been up for debate. During the early process with Studio Junction we had planned on having built in cabinetry and a bench but as the project wore on we did away with the idea–we were never fully sure of it and financially it was no longer feasible. Since we moved in we had a nice glass topped cabinet along this wall but the proportion wasn’t quite right and it didn’t provide nearly enough of the right kind of storage.

Recently we acquired three vintage Børge Mogensen cabinets, which we’ve always admired. Their proportion fills the space better and they provide ample storage for anything from dish towels to the dreaded tupperware drawer. As a bonus, they compliment all of the other Mogensen furniture we have.

The brass hardware is such a knock out.

The third cabinet is slightly different in scale, which is a bit annoying but so far it is serving as a great way to contain the kid mess. They each have a drawer for finished work, and then there is a drawer for paper, one for workbooks etc, and one for other materials. I think the point with this area is that it is fluid. As the children grow, the kids table and kitchen will go and the corner will most likely become a space to do homework.

We have a lot of accessories…good thing we have a new project coming up so we can thin them out! Stay tuned!

  1. Absolutely stunning – gorgeous piece – the brass hardware is outstanding. The little guy photo bombing really adds a sense of perspective!

  3. Looks so god! I recently bought a much more common borge mogensen cabinet and put it in my youngest kid’s room. It was so cheap so I kind of had to, fortunately it works really well in his room. Big and swallows all his stuff. The room is small but except for that cabinet we keep it quite minimalist so it doesn’t feel overwhelming.

  4. Hi Maria, thank you! They fill so much stuff! We haven’t even really committed anything to the left hand drawer cabinet yet.
