The word armoire is French for wardrobe, which is basically a standing closet used for storing clothes. The armoire was invented to replace traditional chests and has quickly become a piece of furniture present in every household. Armoires are available in a variety of styles and colors and finding the right one is often a tricky task. A white armoire is a good option as it adds a touch of class to the room without turning into an eyesore.
The Stork Craft Beatrice Armoire Chest in White is one such white armoire. It is made from solid wood and is completely non toxic in its finish. This finish also adds durability to the wood which is otherwise susceptible to moisture etc. It is easily assembled using a unique cam lock construction. The cabinet comes with 3 wooden shelves placed to utilize as much space available as possible.
The drawers are smooth and work like a charm because they have steel drawer glides with safety top. The adjustable hinges on the cupboard doors ensure that they shut perfectly every time, and round wooden pulls make opening and closing the doors very simple.
