You can see stunning cabinets included in Peter Marino’s interiors. But Peter Marino doesn’t do anything halfway. Take a look at this curated selection of Peter Marino’s astonishing cabinets that as he explained, were inspired by the residential doors he’d had built over the past two decades— including one for the Amons—and each weighed several hundred pounds and took eight men eight weeks to complete
