Samuel has used Quarterline throughout her home. “Outside of the kitchen, my favorite spot I’ve used it is in my son’s room for toy storage,” she says. “I used the Quarterline doors on a Besta unit from IKEA and then my hardware to create a beautiful cabinet.”

Quarterline works with IKEA’s Sektion, Besta, and Godmorgon systems, and customers have loved it’s smudge-proof supermatte finish. But of course, the sleek cabinets are best adorned with the proper hardware. From timeless, modernist door pulls designed by Lewis Dolin to Rejuvenation‘s antique-style knobs, adding the right style hardware can create a more custom look to your cabinets or furniture. 

Your Designer Cabinets Are a Click Away

For those unable to hire Sherman directly to design their kitchen (and other spaces), her Semihandmade Quarterline fronts are available to order. “I can only design so many people’s kitchens,” she says. “But with Quarterline, I get to help more people create beautiful kitchens. It’s the best feeling ever seeing my doors getting installed.”

Shaker cabinets are what you make them, whether your style is traditional, Scandinavian or ultra-modern. “Shaker cabinets have been around for centuries and they’ve always been a favorite,” says the designer. “And the Quarterline design pares things back a bit to make it more minimal but still has that detailing.” The result is a style that is fashionable, sleek, modern, and above all, durable.
