Many thanks to Tama Swan, Associate Editor for Central New Jersey's beautiful Solutions at Home Magazine. Tama was writing an article on Awesome Armoires and found the many wardrobes and armoires Vermont Woods Studios offers to be stand-outs. She writes: The Vermont Cabot Cottage Armoire from Vermont Woods Studios possesses all
the charm and cottage chicness you’d expect from home goods giant Pottery
Barn, but each piece is custom made by artisans using sustainable Vermont
wood. Nine color options (shown here in Vermont green), customizable door
fronts and an array of knobs and pulls guarantee uniqueness. From $1,572;
Tama notes that armoires began as corrals for armor and weaponry (armoire means “armor” in
French) but soon became decorative symbols of young brides’ wealth, traveling
with them and containing their dowries. Eventually armoires moved to the kitchen,
where they were used to store and display glassware, linens and, in some cases,
food, then to the bedroom, where they protected Sunday clothes from wrinkles
Today they’re frequently used to disguise televisions and
other electronics. Stop by our website and check out the many customizable amoires and wardrobes you can use to organize your home and beautify your clutter!
