Thank you for your interest, but the cabinets and funky boomerang countertop are sold. Photos remain here, however!
I’ve kept this page on my site because it is a record of our home’s history. It also draws many visitors, and I know how helpful detailed photos can be to anyone researching or doing a home restoration or renovation. Scroll down, for I’ve updated this page to include some great videos having to do with retro kitchens, particularly about the 1940’s-1960’s era. They’re great for historic restoration.
Right below the video player, you can see my original ad, which includes detailed measurements of each Geneva cabinet, their layout, plus a link to photos of the cabinets we had. Enjoy the videos, then just keep scrolling down…
FOR SALE: SOLD!
VINTAGE METAL GENEVA KITCHEN CABINETS
There is a lot of storage capacity in this vintage set of custom cabinets, original to our 1954-built home. We are only the second owner of the house. The original owner had a really stylish and functional kitchen for her day!
We decided to remodel and get wood cabinets rather than try to restore these, so you benefit. You have an interest in authentic retro kitchens and design; otherwise, you’d not be viewing this page.
To give you an idea of their scale, the long side of the L-shaped counter is 12’5″ long. The 15″ drawer cabinet unit still bears its original Geneva label inside it. These cabinets have some paint wear and surface rust, but are in otherwise good condition.
The cabinet shelves are adjustable wire. Cleaned down to metal and freshly painted with a glossy enamel, these cabinets would look incredible in any retro-inspired kitchen. The porcelain sink unit shows evidence of some earlier touch-up, but they’re wonderful deep sinks.
Because our kitchen is small, it was hard to get pictures of the whole cabinet layout; therefore, I did the 3D rendering of their layout. There are photos in this gallery.

COUNTERTOP INCLUDED: Original metal-edged countertop in funky boomerang pattern. It’s in good condition with a few stains that will probably come out given the right cleaning. There is some wear just to the left of the sink (we just kept a glass cutting board over that spot. It would be cool covered with stainless steel, for that matter).
