Classic Armoire

Taking a cue from the Scottish Arts & Crafts tradition, this classic armoire offers plenty of storage space inside. And you’ll enjoy the challenge of building it.

Historically speaking, armoires met a need in homes that didn’t have closet space built in. Their size, combined with much more modest collections of clothing, made them very popular pieces of pragmatic furniture for a long time. Today, many homes have closets big enough to fit an armoire. While they’ve mostly been retired from their previous duties, they still can work in other parts of the house like you see here. The case of this armoire is mostly cherry plywood. The solid cherry trim provides a warm fi eld for the inset tiles. Handsome hardware complements the finished piece. Inside, you’ll find shelving and hanging space you can tailor to suit your needs. Below that, there are two generously sized drawers that add to the storage options.
