The Perfect Piece: The French Armoire

I can see it now, that void. It is standing in the way of progress. You want desperately to complete this room, but what large piece would function as both an anchor to your room and manage to store all of those bits and bobs that you don't want cluttering up your little retreat? Ahh, don't fret. I have the perfect piece. This beautiful, rich paneled oak armoire is the answer to your decorating dreams.  
The warm red hue of the beautiful oak adds depth to the decor in any room. Standing 7ft tall and nearly 4 1/2 ft wide, the size of this circa 1800 armoire makes it an ideal anchor and focal point for any room. With three shelves and a drawer it's perfect for storing linens, harboring clothing, hiding a television, or even stashing books, blankets, and other living room necessities.

The simplistic carved decorations adorning the facade of the piece add a subtle elegance, making this even more perfect for a living room in a posh apartment or a quaint bedroom in a mountain house. 

This lovely armoire, originally from Burgundy, likely spent time in a most wonderful French chateau or country home. The interior, as you will see pictured, is slightly worn but in perfect condition. The exterior is pristine; it has a beautiful range of colors and an ever so slight shine from a fresh coat of wax. It has most certainly served a wonderful first life, all the while exuding a subtle elegance. And now, it is looking for a new home, somewhere wonderful to start its next life.

We have exciting news for this piece and many more...Stay Tuned...
