finishes.Black, white, oak, maple, cherry,mahogany were the norm.

finishes to give a well defined accent to their project. Textured,
bright, creative laminate finishes are more and more common. Their
look is exciting to the eye and peaceful, open at the same time. Some
of the showcases cabinets you see nowadays have some kind of
futuristic look. Showcases and cabinets built for luxury brands are
the perfect illustration of this phenomena. When painted the showcases
cabinetry is both peaceful and stimulating. The color tone is what
matters. When using a surface laminate the creative finish and
texturing will make a difference. Designers are more daring and
simultaneously the public is enjoying all the new cabinets looks.
Visibility of the products displayed is the single most important
factor when purchasing a jewelry showcase. Traditional quarter vision
jewelry showcases are widely used by the jewelry industry to present
unique items to the potential customers. There is a direct relation
between the overall cost of the display showcase and the full amount
of merchandise it is displaying. On the other end the look of the
jewelry showcase must correspond to the price ranges of the
merchandise it contains. Half vision jewelry cases are attractive in
many ways. You can display in them twice the amount of merchandise on
two shelves. You also have the benefit of an ample lockable storage
area below. Half vision jewelry showcases will accommodate more less
expensive merchandise using the same square footage as a conventional
jewelry showcase. The storage below allows for refill merchandise to
be kept at reach. Packaging, gift boxes and others are right there
when needed. The half vision jewelry showcase is your compact, self
contained selling station. It can be installed standing by itself in
the selling area for customers to walk around. More frequently you
will see them aligned next to each other. Having a large glass display
area and a substantial storage space together saves time and energy.

Many trophies and awards are of irregular size and will not fit in a
standard trophy case. The unusual height and weight of a trophy are
particular specifications that should be addresses when purchasing a
brand new glass trophy showcase. Manufacturers build custom made,
tempered glass cases for large and heavy trophies. They use much
thicker tempered glass, stronger shelf supports and reinforced base
cabinets, The construction of this type of custom trophy case is more
consuming and requires a high attention to details. Trophies are
collectibles and to be kept forever. The display containing it should
be all the more study and reliable. This is true glass top pedestals
and wall glass trophy showcases. They are the two main display
categories utilized to display trophies and awards. Building a heavy
duty wall glass trophy case is a challenge. It requires a strong
structure and much reinforcement during the assembly process. Fully
adjustable glass shelves are required to conform with the different
heights of the trophies to be displayed. Solid center dividers within
the glass display area are an efficient way to strengthen the whole
showcase. One way or another trophy cases do come with many cabinet
variations. It makes them all the more interesting.
The amount and configuration of the space available to install your
wall showcase can vary a lot. In some instances you have to work with
a corridor, hallway or a deep and narrow environment. It is no easy
task to figure out how to take full advantage of what you have
available. There are two ways to go about it. You can select a floor
wall showcase which does not exceed ten inches in depth or you can opt
for a wall mounted shadow box. A slim pre assembled wall showcase is
an attractive option. With a tall cabinet at the bottom and a glass
area on top the wall showcase combines storage space and highly
visible displaying. For stability any narrow wall showcase needs to be
attached to the wall behind. This is done by drilling holes through
the back of the top and bottom cabinets and fitting some screws into
the wall. Multiple glass shelves placed at eye level will make for a
good linear display. The bottom cabinet of a narrow wall showcase
should be at least thirty inches tall while the glass area ought to be
all at eye level. The second choice is more flexible and economical. A
custom wall shadow box usually does not exceed six to nine inches.
They can be manufactured from very small to tall and narrow or very
wide with one or two shelves. A wall showcase such as a shadow box can
be made to fit exactly in that narrow space. You can use it singly or
a few together. To be visually effective the wall showcase should be
also set up at eye level. Always remember that in a narrow space there
is no room to bend down and look at merchandise! Designers will
compensate for the lack of depth by making these wall showcases taller
than a conventional wall unit. Since all are attached to the walls
behind there is way more flexibility in the sizing of wall showcases
for a narrow space.
From collectibles to artwork and crystal ware you may consider a glass showcase as the best way to do it. should it be a single piece, a few items or a whole collection there is a glass showcase to fill the purpose.

Wall display showcases and free standing glass tower cases need to be structurally strong to withstand the test of time and be constantly functional. The metal framing that is holding the vertical glass panels together plays an important role in this respect. They keep the glass sides tight together, straight and at the correct angle. The glass showcase metal framing acts as the skeleton of the showcase. It keeps all components together. Glass showcases are manufactured with anodized framing. The typical choices are anodized gold, black and silver finishes. The finish of the extrusion should match the color of the cabinetry to make for an attractive glass showcase. Over the last couple of years a noticeable change has occurred in the kind of frame finish the end users are expecting. The brushed silver aluminum finish has by far become the most popular framing finish on all glass showcases. Everybody expects a clear non obtrusive look. The black and gold look now appears to detract from the full vision of the contents.
On the contrary the brushed silver is discreet and less visible. In many ways it fits more with the color of the glass within the overall look of the wall showcases and glass towers cases. It feels like nothing is on the way. The trend has been going stronger and it looks like it will continue.

Home owners and art galleries look for pedestals to highlight the
artwork they want to show best. The pedestals are manufactured in
square, rectangular, even triangular shapes. They may be made in
different widths, heights, depths to accommodate each customer's
needs. The base materials to produce the pedestals may be a standard
laminate or solid wood veneer with a wide choice of stains. Your
standard pedestal will have five straight sides and sit on levelers.

assembly, how well the wood panels meet,the sharpness of the angles
and its structural strength. More custom pedestals will be circular or
oval for trade show exhibits and art collectors alike. Recessed top
pedestals, pedestals complemented with lockable storage areas or
drawers are other options. Antique looking art pedestals with two
tones staining and ornamental moldings fit well in homes. Pedestals

utilize for display and storage purposes.Glassware, linens, household
sections carry large items that needs to be displayed and stored. In
order to satisfy these imperatives large built in wood showcases are
installed against the walls or recessed into them. Glassware and
crystal departments will use pre assembled,fully enclosed, lockable,
tempered glass wall display showcases singly or a few units tightly
next to each other. Since department stores have high ceilings there
is ample space left to accommodate some additional top storage.There
are two options to do it: the upper storage may be incorporated in the
glass display showcase. A wall display showcase with wood sides makes
it easy to have the whole unit built in one piece. For handling and
transportation reasons manufacturers may choose to build the upper
storage cabinet separately, This is particularly appropriate when the
whole glass display exceeds eighty inches in height.During the final
installation the upper storage cabinet will be bolted to the wall
right on top of the showcase canopy.Department stores carry a large
inventory of products and do have to maximize the use of all their
space. Large wall glass display cases with double storage is the
