A Few Cabinets. Straight up, and one with a Twist

Today I feel like looking at a few experimental drawings I made, around  the idea of a tall cabinet. The purpose? To have a sweeet tall cabinet (really disappointed I had to come right out and say that!). Joking aside I would probably use these as linen presses, cupboards, media centers, bookcases, you get the idea. They seem to have an Asian feel to them which was not really intentional, it just sort of happened that way.

What I like: crazy top overhang, open space below top, upward vertical thrust, long door handles.
Not happy about: unless someone wants to pony up the cash, this is not likely to see the light of day.

What I like: The verticality (shut up spell checker it is a word), the legs (these will definetly find themselves on something in the future).
What I'm not in love with: The crown is, um, a little weak.

What I like: Obvious plagiarism (it looked good the first time right?), the interplay of a grounding horizontal base and the very vertical feel of the upper cabinet.
Whatever: The base needs some tweaking to bring a little cohesion.

You definitely have a pagoda vibe going on with these cabinets. Maybe a cove type crown molding on the second cabinet?
