Subject:I want a piece of furniture
Time:10:46 pm
I'm looking for a specific piece of furniture-- a stainless steel cabinet. Ideally I'd like something like this or this, but without paying several thousand dollars for a custom-fabricated thing.

Something funky and industrial would be great. Used is preferable over new.

These are sort of vaguely in the genre, but not quite right:

If any one of those fell into my lap I'd probably consider them workable, but they're not quite what I want. I want to use it as a credenza in my dining room, so short is better than tall. Sinks, refrigeration units, etc. are unnecessary, but could be coped with if it was otherwise the right thing-- I can easily imagine doing something silly and whimsical with a sink. Doors are a must, and solid is better than glass.

I have a feeling that this may be partially a case of not knowing the right magic Google/Ebay/Craigslist search incantation, and partially not looking in the right place. If you were going to go somewhere and hunt something like this, where would you look?

Hmm. We have some (not stainless steel, but awesome metal), except I can't remember where we got them. My impulse is to say Ikea (since soooo much of this apartment is Ikea stuff), but I can't find them on Ikea's website, which means that either I'm wrong or they've been discontinued.

I will check with Best Beloved and see if she remembers more about where they came from.

don't think these are quite what you are looking for, but:

I like the one in the first link that says "this"

BTW i searched stainless steel cabinet on ebay and also scanned restaurant supplies. Interestingly the ones I think are closer to what you are looking for were medical supply cabinets.

A lot of this kind of stuff is made for garage storage, so google something like "stainless garage bench." I quickly found this.

there's a store on market at (i think) sixteenth that has this kind of stuff. Not sure about the prices, might be worth checking out.

Yep, they're the this or this that I linked to at the start-- The Industrialists. Serious bucks.
