Amish Heritage Colonial Armoire (Wardrobe with Shelves), 40 inch - SKU#1010
Armoires & Wardrobes: are tall storage cases containing drawers below, and either shelf storage area (Armoires) or rod hanging space (Wardrobes) above.
Colonial Armoires have long been admired for their sophisticated elegance and excellent durability. American Colonial furniture developed from the wide range of furniture styles that were prevalent throughout the British colonies and imported into this country during British rule in the 1700's. Typical Colonial motifs are heavily influenced by the earlier William and Mary, Queen Anne, and Chippendale furniture styles. American Colonial furniture retains many elements of these originating styles but expresses them more conservatively, conferring increased durability and the ability to travel well. Typified by gracefully curved panels and moldings, and deeply turned posts, American Colonial furniture reflects the provincial refined gentility of its time.
This Amish Heritage Colonial Armoire follows a true masterpiece of Colonial cabinet design and is typical of the large furniture pieces of the style. By using 100% premium American hardwood components combined with modern glues and a range of quality finishes (see thumbnails above) it actually surpasses the beauty and durability of the original Colonial Armoire.
Following the best implementations of the Colonial furniture form, the ornamentation of this highly functional yet beautiful bedroom piece is both elegant and practical. Straight edges blend with beautifully arched paneling. Clearly delineated moldings, and well-proportioned drawers present an overall elegance and durability, and note the gracefully shaped Chippendale bracket feet. Choose tasteful brass hardware to remain true to style. The upper cabinet houses 3 adjustable shelves, but can alternatively be fitted with a hanging rod (making it a Colonial 'Wardrobe').
