Plan ideas for a curio

My wife wants me to build her a curio with glass sides, doors, and shelves. I have seen a few that look pretty nice, but I would like some input and ideas to make it really nice for her. Any ideas and thoughts are greatly appreciated!
Thanks!

Thinking about making rails and stiles to use for the sides and doors with glass instead of wooden panel. Would that have enough strength for the sides?

Yes, that's how it's usually done anyway except with thin plywood panels. You'll need good joinery at the corners, and a thicker back panel will give it stability.
