Hoosier kitchen cabinets were extremely common in the first two decades of the 20th century. Named for their origin in Indiana, the Hoosier state, the cabinets were a modern variation of a 19th-century baker's cabinet design, and some late Hoosier cabinets adopted a contemporary art deco appearance. Knowledge of the Hoosier cabinet's history can help an antique buyer know whether a particular cabinet is a Hoosier-style cabinet, whether it is authentically "Hoosier" and whether it falls into the late art deco period of Hoosier cabinet development. Baker's cabinets were an answer to the problem of kitchens that typically did not have adequate work surfaces and storage spaces. The baker's cabinet was a new furniture design that attempted to provide both by combining a tabletop work surface with cabinets above it. The Hoosier cabinet, however, is not an ordinary baker's cabinet; in terms of the conveniences provided, Hoosier cabinets go well beyond the design of basic baker's cabinets, so a cabinet with a simple tabletop-and-cabinet design can't technically be considered a Hoosier cabinet.
