Constructed of eastern white and sugar pine, the massive piece was created using joinery techniques true to the period when armoires like this graced the guild halls and manor houses in places like Munich and Wurtzburg. We designed this piece to be a media center and house a large, flat screen TV for a private lodge near Beaver Creek, Colorado. The crest above the crown molding is carved by hand in a style reminiscent of original carvings that would have been created in the region, with a Colorado twist. There is a regal elk in the center, a black bear and wolf are seen off to the sides and the skyline reflects one view of the Gore Range near Beaver Creek. The rustic lodge effect is finished off with the use of a matched pair of fork horned mule deer antlers.
This piece is 62" wide X 24" deep X 110" tall at the crest. Wire management cut outs and conduits, along with discreet ventilation openings are part of the original design; as are pull out, adjustable shelves and drawers for CD/DVD storage. This piece is lightly distressed and finished with low VOC stains, acrylic lacquer and polished to a warm glow using colored waxes.
We would enjoy recreating this armoire, or one similar for your own mountain getaway.
Dimensions: 62" wide, 24" deep, 110" tall (9' 2")
