    I love the grain pattern in the door, course I love the concept and then the corner cabinet is really clever.

    Have the same design cabinet from 2nd picture in my kitchen at home. Hardware made by Schachermayer. They call it 'magic corner'. Real space saver.

    Hello Ralph,

    I don't remember that I paid that much for magic corner about 10 years ago, but now after checking Schachermayer official web catalogue for Croatian market I found that present price is almost USD 500. So that price at Amazon is very okay.

    Jon,

    We have the same kitchen corner cabinet mechanism installed in 2002 just like the one shown in the second GIF. The only issues have been sometimes overloading the shelving with too much weight and having to then readjust the positioning of the swinging hinge. It sounds simple to do but there are six different adjustment set screws and a real pain to setup initially. Once setup it works very smoothly and makes the best use of wasted cabinet space in the corner.
