French and Victorian style cabinets (used for both books and china) tend to be tall, with doors often featuring multiple glass panels framed by carved wood. Art Nouveau ushered in more inventive cabinet shapes, and more ornate and whimsical carved decorations. Art Deco brought angular, polished, geometrically decorated pieces, often shorter than older cabinets. Mid-century modern pieces are even simpler, often lacking handles or any carved decoration at all.
