French Faux Bamboo Armoire

This one door armoire is spectacular. Also, it is the only solid built faux bamboo armoire that I have ever found. Only the top comes off making it easy to move. Usually the weight of mirrored doors causes these pieces to be a bit troublesome, but as it is solid, the door will not have that issue. The interior corners have ladders built in for adjustable shelves if you would like to add them. The piece is in very good condition and has the usual wear and patina for its age. It is from France, but I bought it in England. A true beauty. Measures: 42" Wide, 7' 9" High and 17 3/4" Deep. $3500

Statement Furniture - The kind that makes a room the Room.

This past week a number of clients have been inquiring about significant "statement" pieces for their homes. Most of them (the husbands) started off at the box stores looking for deals on something that is a be a foundation piece in the home...and after they discovered how shoddy most of those big box store pieces are, they came to me. Of course, the pieces I showed them are all custom made in the USA and are heirloom quality and I shocked a few with prices and lost them...and the others have decided that quality over quantity is a better investment.

These beautiful cabinets come in a wide variety of paint and stain finishes. All are built from slow kiln dried hardwoods. Call or email me for more details. I can have them delivered to your home.
