Brrrringing It Back
A phone niche is useful today for keys, tablet—or telephone.
Brian D. Coleman

When Lisa Harris was restoring her modest 1940 Spanish Colonial Revival home in Tucson, not many original details were left to save. The built-in phone niche, however, was intact. Its location, wedged in a narrow hallway between bedrooms, was inconvenient. So, after restoration, the niche was relocated to the living room, where it adds a period touch. Telephone cabinets were sold as a simple niche with a shelf, as a cabinet, or even as an assemblage with a fold-down seat.
