a cupboard in the wall.

What does this "In" mean here? What image comes to mind?

Here's an image with two sorts of cupboard, from [http://thepapermulberry.blogspot.com/2011/07/500-year-old-farmhouse-full-of-french.html]:


On the right, under the clock, is a dark free-standing cupboard set against the wall. On the left is a cupboard in the wall—the doors are flush with the wall, and the shelves occupy the space within the thickness of the wall.

  • So my sentece there means the one on the left?
