This wardrobe is located in the centre of a family home. The request was to make a striking, vibrant and upbeat piece of furniture. Its design is unique but also functional and appropriate for the daily life of the inhabitants.
I have chosen wood species that contrast sharply in colour. The light panels are made of European maple. I have textured them with a gouge. For the darker panels I have chosen purpleheart. I have sawn them with the band saw while leaving them rough. The frame is made out of French oak. I left the vertical parts natural but the horizontal parts are fumed.
The wardrobe provides space to hang coats and above you can find storage space.
