19th Century Country French Neoclassical Whitewashed Armoire is a majestic example of the revival of architecture that dates back to ancient Greece and Rome!  The tailored design is enhanced by mitered corner posts that are also rounded, and the molding on the crown and base below are meticulously crafted to follow the complex curvatures and angles.  An oval molded detail appears on the crown influenced by the quatrefoil form, and below that more molded detail which creates a framework for the subtly designed cabinet doors with raised & recessed panels accentuated by molded frameworks.  Even the sides are treated with the same elements making this beauty a visual masterpiece viewed from any angle.  External brass hinges complement the brass key guard and ensure the doors open wide in case you wish to utilize the interior as an entertainment center.  If not, there are five surfaces for enormous storage opportunity.  Tailored legs set at 45 degrees provide support.  The whitewashed finish creates a pleasant, casual appearance perfect for 21st Century decors!
