Laurel Crown's spectacularly grand antique armoire is a detailed replica of a French Louis XIII antique wardrobe. It is one of the most exquisite pieces to have ever been reproduced by our cabinetmakers and it shows in the skilled attention to detail and perfect proportions. The centerpiece and focal point of this replica is the without a doubt the heavy raised paneling motif that decorates the doors and the sides of the equally large antique armoire. The ornamentation is a beautiful balance of masculine orthogonal shapes with the more feminine and organic floral carvings that accentuate and frame the doors. A scalloped ogee crown adorns the top of the wardrobe to complete the regal look of the French Louis XIII style and to counterbalance the round shape of the large bun feet.
One functional improvement of this replica over the original antique armoire is the addition of double hinged folding doors. This design mechanism allows the sizeable doors to swing completely around and hug the sides of the armoire for a neat look whether the doors are opened or closed. The spacious interior of the wardrobe features two shelves and ample room to store all your clothes and coats. Alternatively, the spacious interior can house a large TV and entertainment equipment. Two large bottom drawers provide additional storage for more clothes or accessories. Whether this grand armoire will be showcased in your bedroom or a formal living room, it is certain to elevate the atmosphere of your home.
Like all of Laurel Crown's antique reproductions, our French Louis XIII armoire has been carved, sanded, and finished by hand and put together using traditional construction techniques. We only use the finest wood, favored by cabinetmakers throughout the centuries: solid Honduran mahogany wood. Unlike the softer pine and the harder oak, Honduran mahogany is less brittle and more flexible, but what makes it particularly beautiful on this piece is the natural reddish-brown color, straight grain, and medium texture which are all accented by our gorgeous satin finish.
