What Have We Here ?
Made of rare satinwood from the Philippines, this armoire tells a story of Filipino history. For three hundred years, the Spanish influenced the culture and craft of the local people. The Christian monastic aesthetic of the Spanish, combined with traditionally-grown local satinwood, imbue this work of furniture with grace and godliness.
How to Use It ?
The brilliance of armoires is their mixed use and viability in almost every room of one’s home. Use it in an entryway to store canvas grocery bags and (dry!) umbrellas. Incorporate it into your living room for books, blankets, or whatever else. Or replace a dresser and wardrobe with a bit of elevated design, like this armoire. One could even substitute the medicine cabinet and closet in their bathroom with this piece. Wherever you place this work, it will add a grand but natural and utilitarian element to its surroundings.
Why It Matters ?
Due to exploitation and declining habitat, satinwood is increasingly rare. This beautiful piece is a reminder of how we must utilize and protect what resources we have already taken into our own hands.
