About Us

Global antiques and art collectors based in the United Arab Emirates

Cabinet of Curiosity is an online platform for unique furniture, one-of-a-kind antiques and decorative objects. We believe that a person’s interior space should be both a tribute to the past and an homage to the future. Our team carefully selects collectibles from auctions, galleries and specific markets from around the world to be accessible and provide white glove service to your doorstep. 

Our name – Cabinet of Curiosity – spurs the imagination of lots of fascinating treasures from around the world. In this context, cabinet originally referred to a room – a whole room full of delightful pieces from a collector. Curiosities originally described the objects included as belonging to natural history, geology, ethnography, archaeology, religious or historical relics, works of art (including cabinet paintings), and antiquities.

The classic cabinet of curiosities emerged in the sixteenth century, although more rudimentary collections had existed earlier. In addition to the most famous and best documented cabinets of rulers and aristocrats, members of the merchant class and early practitioners of science in Europe formed collections that were precursors to museums. 

Our collection of curiosities is procured specially to bring beautiful collections to our community in the United Arab Emirates and the Gulf. Carefully selected from antique sellers, fairs, renowned galleries and auction houses around the world, Cabinet of Curiosity (COC) delivers a rare assortment of antique and contemporary pieces to decorate the 21st Century home.

The eclectic collection ranges from one of a kind gems, such as an 18th century chandelier that once adorned the palaces of kings and queens to hand crafted Polynesian masks from tribes in the South Pacific Ocean. Each item reflects the culture, trends, and the conversations of that time. Bringing the treasures into your home adds character and value to build your own cabinet of curiosities.

One-of-a-kind pieces are carefully selected for their provenance, quality, and story behind them. The unique offerings through COC are particularly selected to be part of your homes. The COC global buyers team ensures the authenticity and creative pieces brought to you.

Any object from COC adds a special touch to your home, whether it is furnished in classical or modern interior style. Explore our collection.
