In the early 19th century, a style of furniture began to bloom. From France to America, the Empire style and the American Empire style drew heavy inspiration from the ancient Empires of Rome and Greece to create some of the most elegant, curving lines ever seen in furniture.
Beautiful whorls and sloping edges on both foot and headboards of beds that carried over to sumptuous chairs, dressers, drawers, tables, and antique armoires with drawers. The Empire style was also one of the most difficult styles to hand carve and perfect.
Truly, this master crafted sleigh wardrobe with drawers evokes the talent, passion, and dedication to the artistry and diligence of the Empire style. We began the creation of this antique wardrobe with drawers by carefully selecting the most beautiful cuts of Honduran mahogany. We looked for the flawless grain, natural beauty, and highest quality pieces.
Next, our master carpenter begins the creation and employs the use of mortise and tenon joints. This is one of the strongest joints used in antique furniture and can be found used in the most priceless heirlooms today—heirlooms that have lasted hundreds of years. Once the construction is complete, we meticulously go over every detail to ensure the sleigh wardrobe with drawers is faultless before sanding, staining, and finishing.
A few contemporary touches with the construction of the master woodworkers make this regal antique armoire with drawers an essential piece for guestrooms of the bedroom of the antique collector —or simply for those who understand the immense quality, beauty and longevity of well made, handcrafted furniture that can span generations.
Our antique armoire with drawers offers a vintage atmosphere in an undeniably alluring storage option that will elevate any bedroom you choose to place it in. This sleigh wardrobe with drawers would also look exemplary with a French Sleigh bed and a French Sleigh dresser to complete a warmly elegant bedroom.
