Armoire for the Entry by Calgary Interior Design Firm

Armoire for the entry way is typically it is the first thing you see when you enter your home and the last thing you see when leaving.   NFID deleted the standard plan for the conventional front entry closet and opted for a fabulously practical and organized custom built armoire.

This magnificent unit mimics a piece of high-end furniture with its white oak stained java/charcoal and is finished with polished nickel hardware pulls.  A furniture kick finishes off the bottom of the armoire and a crown moulding finishes off the top so it doesn’t conflict with the ceiling height & cornice moulding.  This instantly draws your attention from the main living room which is directly adjacent to the foyer.  The transition from the 12”x24” stacked horizontal tile to the hardwood between the two rooms allows for a division of space.

The functionality of this armoire built-in unit parallels the aesthetic of it.  It has a multitude of storage plus organized space that wouldn’t have been achieved with the standard closet design.  The armoire for the entry becomes a wonderful piece to keep yourself organized as we go through the business of our daily lives. – NFIDArmoire in the Entry by Calgary Interior Designer 1Armoire in the Entry by Calgary Interior Designer 4Armoire in the Entry by Calgary Interior Designer2Armoire in the Entry by Calgary Interior Designer 3
