It’s been almost 15 years and we haven’t been able to get Rachel and Phoebe’s apothecary table from F.R.I.E.N.D.S out of our heads! We are not alone and we know why. Maybe it’s the old world charm or the promise of magic hidden away in its many drawers, but an apothecary cabinet is both attractive and exotic. Whatever the reason might be, the appeal of an apothecary cabinet cannot be denied. But what is an apothecary cabinet? Traditionally, an apothecary was a person who prepared and sold medicines. This predecessor to the modern day pharmacist is steeped in folklore, hence, the fascination surrounding it. Also, is it just us, or does going by the apothecary sounds waaay fancier than swinging by CVS? So, if you are looking for something above and beyond a dresser: Congrats! You found it. An apothecary table is an ace accent piece that also has oodles of storage. Whether it’s hats and scarves in the entryway, medicines and makeup in the bathroom, socks and ties in the dressing room, or stationery supplies in the home office, this cabinet can be effectively used in every room of the house. For those who have more tchotchkes than they would like to admit, an antique apothecary cabinet is just what the doctor ordered. It’s bold, quirky and has a touch of design magic; it’s an antidote to boring interiors! If an apothecary table is not what’s on your mind, check out the variety of Dressers on Chairish.
